I’ve loved felt boards since I was a little kid! I created these felt board dress-up templates for kids to enjoy. My kids have been playing for our set for a decade now!

Felt Dress Up Board Materials:
- Felt. We used nice craft felt for this project. 100% wool felt would have been nicer, but this worked well enough.
- Fabric shears (these cut through felt like butter, unlike many household scissors).
- Straight pins
- Patterns – follow the links below to find each project.
- Ultra fine point Sharpie pen (for drawing on faces)
Felt Board Ideas
You don’t actually have to have a felt board to use these – my girls actually love to stick them to our living room couch. But, felt boards are lovely and I’ve featured a bunch over the years. Here are a few you can choose from:
- Hoop felt board tutorial
- Traditional style felt board tutorial
- File folder travel felt board tutorial
- Sturdy travel felt board tutorial
- You can also buy a felt board.
My own kids have always just used our homemade flannel boards, but I played with a storebought one growing up, and the store bought versions are popular in preschools.
Felt Board Dress Up Templates to Download
As you can see, I’ve made a lot of dress up templates over the years! They are quick and easy handmade toys to create, and my children enjoy them.
Felt Dress Up Doll Template
These dress up dolls were actually the last of my dress up templates. My kids really like they way you can swap out their hair.
Dress Up Bear Templates
Here is the original dress-up bear! Actually, it’s a little smaller than the original original bear. I wound up downsizing so that we could cut more out of less fabric AND so that they would be easier for the kids to manipulate.
Dress Up Gingerbread Man
I created this dress-up Gingerbread Man after we read an Brett’s Gingerbread Baby. It can wear all of the same clothes as the dress up bear.
Dress Up Clothing
These clothes fit the dress up bear and the gingerbread man. The people I made even smaller, so they have their own clothing.
I’ve labeled these “boy outfit” and “girl outfit” but of course you can dress your bears however you like!
My kids like to cut the middle of the dress to create a shirt and skirt outfit. We’ll cut out several colors and mix and match.
This is as close as my kids come to dressing warmly now that we live in California!
I’d love to see photos if you use these dress up templates with your kids!
