The first step is making the felt blueberries.

Don’t be intimidated by the number of blueberries these felt foods are fast and easy to sew. You’ll need a strong thread, if your thread is too week to handle the gather you can use 2 strands doubled over.

When creating your X shape in the center of the circles cut small but be sure to cut completely through.

How to make a felt blueberryCut small X shapes into the two largest felt circles but not the smallest circle.

Stack circles.

Create a gathering stitch around the outside of the largest circle.

Stuff lightly

Pull tightly, run the needle through the base of the berry in varying directions to close.

Repeat with remaining berries.making felt food blueberries DIY free patternSew blue top to the thick felt blueberry box top with a running stitch and matching thread.

DIY Felt Food Chicken Nuggets Playset

20 Feb

Felt Food tutorials Felt Chicken Nuggets

While felt avocados and chestnuts are quirky and a little refined, kids love to play with the foods they enjoy most and few things hold the childhood allure of a box of chicken nuggets complete with a dipping sauce.

This sweet little DIY chicken nuggets play set will create 7 fun felt food chicken nuggets, a cheerfully detailed felt chicken nugget box, and delightful dipping sauce cup.

Free felt food patterns - Felt chicken nuggets pattern and tutorialHappy meal indeed!

For what started out as such a simple idea these nuggets were a bit tricky. Some early versions sewed up looking like potatoes or smashed peanuts. I played with color and scale, added wrinkles and divots and tried a sea of shapes before hitting on a weird but amazing idea…use fur felt!

How to make felt chicken nuggetsThe addition of fur felt really makes these felt food chicken nuggets look breaded. Not to mention they are so soft and and dare I say cute?

Making these felt chicken nuggets couldn’t be easier! You can use this easy pattern or even freehand your shapes. (How fun would it be to go for an omage to dino nuggets?) These whimsical felt chicken nuggets sew up quick and easy!

I think you’ll love the results as much as I do.Pattern to make felt chicken nuggets felt food tutorialsSew up some adorable felt food chicken nuggets with this free pattern.Felt chicken nuggets- Felt food
