Adding a small piece of felt decoration can be a quick and easy way to add character to your amigurumi faces! In today’s blog post, I’ll show you how to do it!


Basically, any glue that works on fabrics will work for yarn, white craft glue is non toxic and safe for children.

The glue will hold up pretty well, but if you’re making the toy for children under 3, it is safer to sew the felt on with a sewing needle and thread to avoid it being chewed off by young children/babies.


Felt is very versatile and easy, simply cut the shape you desire, and glue it onto your piece. Add felt features and trims at the very end to see how the finished product will look.

To glue a piece on, just add a dab of glue to the back of the felt:

And press into place. Allow the glue to dry completely, usually 24 hours.


Here are a few helpful tips to keep in mind:

  • The shape of your felt piece adds expression, so feel free to experiment! For example, a rounded tooth gives a totally different expression than a pointed one!
  • Amigurumi are made from round balls… and in general, flat pieces don’t glue well to balls! To make sure your felt stays, attach to a relatively flat portion and keep your felt pieces small.
  • If you don’t like the look of your felt, just pull it off before the glue dries! You can gently wash the remaining glue off with a wet washcloth.
