Print out the reindeer ornament pattern, then cut out all of the pattern template pieces.
Print out the template and cut out the patterns. The template includes base, head, lower body, upper legs, horns, ear patterns, face, head and belly patterns.
Cut out 2 pieces for each of the upper leg patterns.
Trace the base, head, lower body, outer ears and the upper legs on brown felt.
Trace the belly and the face on white or cream felt, the inner ears on pink felt, the nose on black felt, and trace the horn on dark brown felt.
Cut out the traced patterns from the felt pieces.
Stitch the nose on the face cutout and use a needle with black thread to stitch the eyes on both sides of the nose.
Stitch the inner ear cutouts on the outer ear cutouts and stitch the belly cutout on the bottom of the lower body cutout.
Stitch 2 upper leg cutouts together around the sides.
Place the face piece on the bottom side of the head cutout and stitch only along the top side of the face cutout.
Place the lower body piece on the bottom of the base cutout and place the 2 upper leg patterns either side of the body as well.
Stitch around the sides and bottom to join all of them together, but keep the top edge open for now.
Place the ear and horn cutouts on the top of the head on the base piece.
Place the head piece on top of the base piece, keeping the ears and horns between the base and head layers.
Stitch around the open side of the head pattern to attach it to the base and lower body.
Keep a small opening on a side of the head while stitching.
Stuff the felt reindeer pattern with scrap felt or cotton batting through the opening.
Close the opening to secure the stuffing. Stitch the mouth using black thread if you would like.
Attach a small ribbon loop on the back side of the felt reindeer plushie if you want to use it as an ornament.
