Felt Cherry Pie

Make this adorable felt cherry pie -- it's perfect for any play kitchen.

Materials

  • Pie template
  • Red felt
  • Tan felt
  • Scissors
  • Pinking shears
  • Sewing machine
  • 1/2-inch-thick polyester batting
  • 1-inch-thick polyester batting
  • Brown and green felt scraps
  • Red felted ball
  • Needle and coordinating thread

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Enlarge and print template; cut out shapes.

  2. Step 2

    Trace and cut two pie-top circles from red felt. Cut 1-inch-wide by 8-inch-long strips from tan felt with pinking shears.

  3. Step 3

    Weave strips over one red circle as you would for a pie. Place second red circle over first circle and strips.

  4. Step 4

    Machine sew around circle with a 1/4-inch seam allowance. Cut a slit in the center of the bottom red circle and turn entire pie top right-side out.

  5. Step 5

    Trace and cut the pie-filler circle from 1/2-inch polyester batting. Stuff the pie top with the batting circle and hand-sew the slit closed.

  6. Step 6

    Trace and cut two "side of pie" pieces from tan felt. For each, fold over about 1/2 inch on the longer side and iron; sew down edge. Trace and cut the pie bottom from the tan felt.

  7. Step 7

    Machine sew both side pieces to bottom circle. Sew the ends of the sides together.

  8. Step 8

    Trace and cut the pie-filler circle from 1/2-inch polyester batting and 1-inch polyester batting. Insert both into felt pie crust.

  9. Step 9

    Place pie top on top of batting; pin and hand sew in place.

  10. Step 10

    Sew a thin piece of brown felt onto a red felted ball to make a cherry; cut a leaf shape and add to brown felt stem with a few stitches. Sew cherry onto top of pie.

    So totally cute! Just to let everybody know feltandcraft.com has the felt to make this. They have a million colors and awesome customer service, I get all of my felt from them, and they have really fast shipping.

    Use your imagination and adapt the idea for other uses (ie, pin cushion for the avid sewer, crafty trinket box). And, be alittle creative and adapt the design to your liking. The possibilities are endless.

    I think this is very cute and is a great addition to my daughters "food"

    This is the ugliest thing I've seen on this site! Perhaps if the strips were realistically close....and what is the purpose?

    I used to make potpouri pies years ago, and I like mine better, they were so pretty and very easyto do. I gave them as gifts and everyone loved them

    I was thinking that it would make a cute pin cushion too! Can't wait to make it.

    A coworker made this craft however with apple potpourri. It makes our work space smell very nice!

  • MsFMG 25 Feb, 2009

    Won't this adorable Cherry Pie be perfect for a pin cushion in the sewing/knitting area? Pins - stuck into the red squares - and other accessories stored underneath the tan strips, such as an embroidery scissor, a crochet hook, etc.

    This artist does really neat works of perfection! The food convincingly make your mouth water. Very creative...
