Make a Felt Penguin Earbud or Cord Holder

This post is a part of Craft Lightning where the process takes 15 minutes or less without dry time. Craft Lightning is hosted by Angie Holden from The Country Chic Cottage, Laura with Laura's Crafty Life, and 30 Minute Crafts.



  • Felt - red, white, and yellow
  • scissors or personal cutting machine (I used a Cricut Maker)
  • Fabri-tac Adhesive
  • Scrap of cardstock (I used a butter carton)
  • Snap or Velcro
  • Pattern or SVG file (listed below)

I want to thank Cricut for providing the Cricut Maker so that I can create posts similar to this one.

cricut maker

I used my Cricut Maker to cut the felt. I cut each piece three times with the knife blade and still needed to use my scissors to finish some of the cuts. I have easily cut felt before on the Maker so I imagine it must have something to do with the brand of felt I used.

black pieces

Two black pieces are joined together sandwiching the cardstock between them to create a stiffer piece to wrap the cord around.

When gluing these pieces together, make sure to get as close to the edge of the black felt as possible with your adhesive. Set this aside.

small pieces

It is time to add the small pieces, glue the eyes and beak to the white felt piece.

Glue the two yellow ovals to the base of the black sandwiched piece.

glue white piece

To add the white shape to the black felt, you are only going to join it together at the top and down to the eyes leaving the rest unattached. This flap with cover your cord when in use.


To finish up, add a snap as I have or even better add velcro to join the bottom of the white felt to the black felt.


Now your project is ready to use.
