Felt snacks: watermelon, strawberries and cupcake


For each watermelon:
  1. Print and cut out the paper pattern. Cut out two red pieces for the watermelon flesh and one green piece for the rind.
  2. Sew the two red pieces together along the straight edge with a blanket stitch. I used three strands of a green embroidery thread.
  3. Line up the edges of the rind with the curved edges of the watermelon flesh. Sew along one side with a blanket stitch and then two-thirds along the other edge.
  4. Fill with polyester filling or felt scraps and close the seam.
  5. Use three strands of a dark coloured embroidery thread to sew seeds randomly on the watermelon.


For each strawberry:

  1. Print and cut out the paper pattern. Cut out one red piece and one green piece. Fold the red piece in half. Cut the tip off from one end, to make a flat tip as right. Sew together along the bottom and side with a blanket stitch.
  2. Sew a running stitch around the top. Fill with polyester filler or felt scraps and pull the running stitch tight. Fasten to close the top.

3. Fasten the thread to the top of the strawberry. Place the green piece on the top. Sew in a cross to hold the green part to the top of the strawberry.
4. Using three strands of a light brown embroidery thread, sew a small, well-spaced running stitch on the strawberry to represent seeds.


For each cupcake:

1. Print and cut out the paper pattern and felt pieces. Using a blanket stitch sew the cake top to the cake side.

2. Sew the edges of the cake sides together.

3. Sew a running stitch along the bottom edge of the cake side. Fill with polyester filler and pull the stitching tight to match the size of the cake base felt piece.

4. Sew the base to the cake side using a blanket stitch. Pull out the running stitch.

5. Sew sprinkles or other decorations onto the top of the cupcake.
