Okay, I have a bit of a problem–I’m a little OBSESSED with Nativity Sets. I own several and I just finished my second Nativity Set Pattern–this one a CHILD’S FELT NATIVITY SET. And, guess what, I made a pattern and HERE IS IS FOR FREE! I, personally, think that is it just so stinking cute. And, as I’m sure you will be happy to hear, it is NO SEW. There is a bit of cutting involved in making this nativity set, but absolutely no sewing or stitching of any kind. So, anyone with any level of crafting skills and experience can make this nativity set, specifically designed to teach and be enjoyed by the children in your life.
This nativity set in made from stiffened felt (don’t worry, the instructions go into detail how to do this. It’s a very easy and cheap process). But, since it is made from stiffened felt there is no stuffing, and the figures will stand up well.
Here are the characters involved in this set:
Mary, Joseph and Jesus in the manger
The three kings
And, there are also 2 angles included in this pattern. For each character there is a separate template included that is to scale, so you don’t have to worry about re-sizing anything. In the instructions which come with this pattern I talk about how to cut the felt in an easy way and how to glue down all of the pieces.
My kids are already having a blast playing with this child’s felt nativity set and I expect that they will continue to love it for years to come. Once again, the pattern is no sew, so you will have plenty of time to get this project done before Christmas.
Once again, you can get it for FREE HERE!
Or, if you’d like a plushie version of the nativity, also great for kids to play with, consider this pattern, also listed in my etsy shop. Get it HERE.
Thanks, and all the best!
