Lemon Meringue Pie – Felt Food Tutorial

14 Mar

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 *

4″ x 8″ Beige felt I used Peanut Butter *

Stuffing

Pie form (optional)

*Matching Thread
