You can buy nearly everything you need to make your cherry pie at American Felt and Craft, your purchase keeps these patterns free.
Here’s how to make your cherry pie:
Lipstick felt – Cut 1 8 inch round. And set it aside.
Toffee- cut 8 1″ strips lengthwise (12″ long) using pinking shears.
Cut 6 wedges from Toffee colored felt (template follows)
Cut 6 Lipstick colored side pieces 1.5″ x 9″ long.
6 Toffee backs 4″ x 4.5″ long
Wedge Actual size
Lay 4 of the strips across your pie face as shown.
Weave second set of strips into the first using an over under method, to create a lattice design.
Using a small dollop of felt glue join the strips together where they meet, work slowly to avoid mistakes. Use the smallest amount of glue possible, too much glue may make your felt tough to sew through.
Please note: DO NOT GLUE LATTICE TO RED PIE FACE, PIE TOP IS ONLY THERE TO JUDGE LATTICE PLACEMENT.
Your lattice will look like this when completed.
Trace your foam wedge shapes onto red felt.
If you aren’t using American Felt and Craft’s pre-cut foam pie wedges you can cut another 8 inch circle from paper and divide it into 6 sections and cut down the sides of the triangles but not through the center so you can trace the wedge shape but still have an intact paper circle for use in an upcoming step, as shown below or you can use the wedge template above.
Mark out spots where you will place your cherries, you may want to place lattice over to assist in selecting the areas you want to place the cherries, you’ll want to use about 1/2 of your cherries.
To create your cherries carefully cut all wool felt balls into halves.
Using small amount of felt glue, glue cherries into place, wait for them to dry about 15 minutes and stitch them down securely, they may be choking hazard for small children so you want them to be extremely secure. Repeat this process with the 6 side pieces.
Trace 8 inch circle onto lattice then cut into wedges, template below. Your pie top can be used to trace the circle if needed.
Cut pie top into wedges
Sew lattice wedges to pie top wedges, you can also use glue for this but use carefully you don’t want any dried glue on pie slices.
Place lattice/cherry piece on top of foam form, place 1 toffee colored bottom below wedge and wrap side piece around as shown, pin into place.
Sew top and bottom to sides using a whip or overcast stitch, back open.
Whip stitch around back bottom and back sides. Then stitch through back and into pie top and out again using a running stitch to secure top lattice piece.
When you’re done you’re pie slice should look something like this:
Now fold raw end in towards pie and using a running stitch stich down.
Using a long whip or overcast stitch sew along top pulling tightly to form crust ridges. Use tan thread the red thread is for demo purposes only.
I hope you enjoy your new felt pie.
