For the last of my felt food series, I made some fruit. Yes, I had wonderful plans of flat one dimensional fruit which would be simple and easy to create, that didn’t happen. My son saw me scrolling through Pinterest and asked if I could make one of the stuffed fruit so that he could use a knife to cut up. These felt crafts have been really fun to make and stretching my creative abilities.
Fruit Felt Craft Supplies
- Orange – orange peel and inside
- Green – pear skin and leaves
- Red – apple skin
- Black – seeds
- Beige – inside of pear
- Brown – stem
- Blue – knife
- Grey – knife blade
- Thread – white and red
I cut out 2 orange circles, and two white circles that were larger than the orange ones, I also cut out 6 leaf shaped orange pieces for the back. I used white thread to sew all of the pieces together and to create the appearance of slices. One of them is fatter then the other as I trimmed down the second set of leaf-shaped pieces when I saw how thick it made the orange. Did I mention that I’m not at all crafty? I drew out all of my templates by hand and then cut them to what I thought would work.
I cut out two pear-shaped white pieces, and 4 green pear shaped pieces, with 2 beige circles, 4 black seeds, 1 green leaf and 1 rectangular brown piece of felt. I rolled up the brown felt and sewed it shut to make the stem. I sewed everything else together, stuffed it and closed it up.
I cut out 4 red leaf shaped pieces for the apples, 2 white apple flesh pieces, 4 black seeds, one green leaf and one brown rectangular piece for the stem. I sewed the stem together, the same way I did the others. I then sewed the two red pieces of felt together and attached the white piece to it. I left an opening at the top to add the leaf and the stem and then I stuffed it and closed it up. That’s when I sewed on the seeds.
As you can see, my stitch work is horrible and never even, but hey, the kids didn’t notice and they loved it.
You can’t have fruit without a knife, I cut out the shape of the knife onto cardboard. I used a blue rectangular piece of felt for the handle, I wrapped it around the cardboard to get an idea for size. I then did the same for the grey blade portion and sewed it up with the cardboard inside.
