Nature Spun Felted Zebra Stuffie

This little stuffie started out as a puppet. I made him for a colleague who likes all things zebra, including the book, What If the Zebras Lost Their Stripes. I had him pretty well finished, but found the head so floppy that I tried felting the yarn to see if a denser fabric would help. It didn't, so he needed to be a stuffed toy.

The pattern for the puppet is a free download, or can be found at, or in the book Itty-Bitty Toys by Susan B. Anderson. The yarn is Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted, 100% wool.
