"Feltcraft" by Petra Berger has around 9 or so felt animal patterns. You might be able to find several for free though on Craftster, as a PP suggested.

A happy woman

I think she was wanting to sew wool felt sheets into animals Is that right? If so, you might check on the Waldorf board, I can remember the Waldorf school I worked at having little sewn felt animals. I don't know of a name of hand, though.

I just got this book from the library and I think it's just what you are looking for. It has patterns for lots of really cute animals.

I got Feltcraft used on Amazon. I think it was around 6-8 dollars, including shipping. Haven't made any of the animals, but they are cute and easy!

This one seems to be good. I am tempted to order it. Otherwise, I have a file full of free web patterns for various animals compiled. PM me if you are really interested in that.
