For this I used felt in a few neutral colors, glass seed beads, thread and a needle.
You should use pins and pillow stuffing, I didn't, but it would have made my projects nicer. I ended up stuffing it with scraps of felt (which made them a little lumpy).
So this isn't going to be that how-to-ish. Sorry. I really sort of made it up as I went. I only used a few skills though. I rolled them and then sewed the roll shut, like I did for the dino's head.
And the shark.
Also, I gathered little strips for the lion's mane, which I think will be good for a hairpin project...
