The last few weekends I have been planting my vegetable garden. I can imagine if my daughter Emily were still a little girl she would delight in helping me. Better yet, she would have loved her own little garden. Yesterday we shared a sneak peek of our children’s felt veggie garden. And today we are sharing the tutorial for the felt vegetables, including the templates you will need to make these little veggies.
This is a slightly bigger project that takes a bit of time and effort but is a great one to make while you’re enjoying your own garden or watching your favorite evening show. This is also a great project for the kiddos if you want to teach your child to sew. It’s a super fun project for them to work on and will be a great toy for them to play with once it’s completed.
These little felt vegetables are sewn together with a simple blanket stitch, which also adds the handcrafted look that I love when making felt projects. If you are not familiar with a blanket stitch, you can find a tutorial in our embroidery guide.
When you’re ready to make your felt veggies, check out our tools and materials list below. I love the variety of felt colors to add a bit of visual texture. Please note: some colors used in this original tutorial have been discontinued. Our suggested replacements are listed below in the Materials list.
You can print the templates onto ordinary printer paper and cut them out so they are ready for your felt, then follow the step by step guide below. For more project ideas that complement this one, be sure to check out the tomato vine, the fabric basket, and the garden signs.
