Doc McStuffins Inspired Felt Stethoscope

21 May

DIY felt stethoscope tutorial

My kids are crazy obsessed with Disney’s new show Doc Mcstuffins.

I like to think it’s because they aspire to be doctors helping out those in need but more than likely it’s because they like toys and singing .

What better way to encourage all of the above than with your own Doc Mcstuffin style stethoscope!

Stethoscope from felt

For each Stethoscope you will need:

1 plastic headband (look for fabric wrapped ones without the little teeth along the top the headbands pictured are from Dollar Tree in a package of 3)

2 feet of ribbon (I doubled it over to glue it but if you are willing to sew you can get away with 1 foot). Shorten if needed to insure ribbon can’t be wrapped around the child’s neck.

*All felt wool or wool blend, acrylic lacks the thickness so measurements may be off and hot gluing acrylic is a recipe for burns

Scrap tan felt, I used Toffee from American Felt and Craft

Scrap heart color I used Hot Pink and Sparrow from American Felt and Craft

White felt 4″ x 8″ for stethoscope body I used

Felt for ear covers 2″ x 5″ I used Hot Pink and White

1 large squeaker.

Hot glue gun and glue

Needle and Thread

Felt Glue (optional)

diy tutorial to make felt stethoscopes

Cut out template pieces in desired felt shades.

template and tutorial for felt stethoscope

felt bandage

Attach heart to small bandage center and bandage center to bandage. Finish with french knots if desired.

Attach bandage to one of the stethoscope circles and set aside.

Loop Ribbon over headband.

Glue ribbon together with felt or hot glue (you can also sew it)

Attach the back of the stethoscope (the piece without the bandage)

Place stethoscope top (the side with the bandage) on top of the back and  stitch where the ribbon meets with a running stitch and continue with an overcast stitch.

Slip in large squeaker and whip stitch closed.

Wrap end of headband with felt strip and hot glue. Make sure to use glue along entire strip to felt can’t come loose.

wrap headband in felt

Finish by placing glue in center and gently pinching to seal off the headband end.

When finished the ends should be large enough to fit over ears like ear muffs and should not fit in the ear canal at all, add more felt if needed to accomplish this.

The Doc is In!

    If kids can do this on their own they can have the customized toys that will teach them about the basic medical instrument of the doctors. They can even have role playing and act like doctor or nurse and use this to their patient.
