Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.

What is the difference between softies and felties? The only information I can find is that felties are made from felt whereas the softies can be made of anything. Are there other criteria?

Well as a plushie maker, if the toy is going to a child I make it from a soft material.  If the toy is just for display, I think felt is fine.  I personally, prefer soft materials such as fleece, flannel, cotton, minky, soft faux fur.

Softies can be made of felt, but felties can't be made of fleece.  Wink Cheesy

It's really just comes down to preference; Softies, Plushies, they're all the same, I think felties just came about to give them a sort of sub-category for those cute things made entirely out of felt.

There isnt a huge difference between the two: felties are usually smaller and have less stuffing. It takes less time to make felties as compared to softies.
