Meet our newest arrival - Spring Supper Felt Food PDF pattern from American Felt and Craft

Meet our newest arrival – Spring Supper Felt Food PDF pattern

Meet our newest arrival, Spring Supper!

I created this felt food pattern with the goal of making it as interactive as possible.

The result is a ham that can be dressed and sliced, potatoes that can be baked, deviled eggs with removable filling, stacking jello salad, and decorative lettuce leaf accents.

This mammoth pattern also features felt steamed asparagus, hot cross buns, a coconut cake, pineapple slices and a simple but impressive felt pan pattern.

This pattern was truly a labor of love and like all proud parents I feel the need to show you a ridiculous amount of pictures.

Felt Food - Easter Ham - American Felt and Craft

This adorable little felt ham only measures  5″ x 7″ x 5.5″  to perfectly fit into play ovens and pretend kitchens.

It was based on the vintage style pineapple hams of the 1950’s.

The pint size play ham features slices attached with hook and loop for a fun slicing action.

The felt pineapple slices are attached with colored hook and loop and come off with ease for hours of culinary play.

The scalloped potatoes and asparagus are perfectly portioned for sharing!

Of course my absolute favorite part of this tutorial e-book is the felt jello salad.

Felt Jello has been on my sewing bucket list for quite some time and I went through at least a dozen prototypes before I was happy but I think it was all worth it.

The felt food jello pieces all stack and can be made from any color of the rainbow.

The Digby Pillow – 15 Minute Felt Beagle Pillows

4 Aug

The Digby Pillow

The Digby pillow is a felt craft with plenty of wow factor. These 15 minute faux applique pillows are a must make!

 I chose to create beagle pillows as a way to honor of our lemon beagle Digby, pronounced “DIG-BEE”. If beagles aren’t your thing you can easily customize your pillow with whatever shape or silhouette you fits your style.

All you need are 15 minutes and a few simple supplies to transform a plain or inexpensive pillow into crisp stylish custom throw pillow.

Felt pillow supplies

You will need:

 Pillow(s) of your choice

1/4 yard felt of your choice – I used white, this amount will make two beagles with plenty of leftovers.

Wool or wool blend felt works best, acrylic felt, polyester felt and eco fi will ball up over time.

Beacon’s Felt Glue

Thread coordinating or (contrasting if your the type who likes to live on the edge.)

Iron, Scissors, Sewing Needle

You can also try pinning template to felt and cutting but the freezer paper makes the job much much easier.

Cut away extra paper and gently peel away freezer paper you can re- use this template up to 5 times so save it.

Felt beagle pillow tutorial

Lay your applique out on the pillow(s) exactly as you want them and mark their position lightly.

Sew faux stitching to felt

 Remove your applique and thread the needle and sew a running stitch along the outside.

Because you are using felt you won’t need to worry about fraying and you can just attach the applique straight to your pillow.

However the stitching helps to create a more authentic appearance and adds a nice weight to the piece.  Be sure to only knot on the backside of your shape.

Glue down faux applique

Line up your applique with the marks you made earlier and glue down with felt glue one section at a time.

Smooth out but do not press the glue down into the fibers. Once dry the glue will hold as well as stitches.

 Allow the glue to set and you’ve got yourself a fabulous new set of throw pillows.

Please do not pin this template to pinboards.
