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.

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!

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!

How to make pie - felt food - Lemon

Happy Pi day! Let’s celebrate with pie.

We’ve shared tutorials for cherry pie and for hand pies so today let’s tackle felt lemon meringue pie. The key to making felt pie is the cut. Mess up the cut and the pie won’t sit right so take your time and cut with care. Consider the freezer paper method although the pie template pieces are all fairly easy to cut. This pie slice is based on a 6 piece pie. 6 pieces = 8″ pie. If you need a quick refresher on the stitches check out our post on stitches.

You will need:

4″ x 8″ White or Cream colored felt I used Cream *

4″ x 4″ Yellow Felt I used Lemon Meringue but Banana Cream is also a great choice *
