Just when we think Krista could not craft anything cuter, she comes up with these amazing felt artisan breads — perfect for a play bakery! This project tutorial shows how to make a baguette, soft pretzel, croissants, and a couple of loaves. Just download our templates below and then follow our step-by-step instructions.

Since there is not too much construction required, we would say this is a beginner-friendly felt food project. To craft these felt artisan breads, you will need to know how to do a back stitch, whip stitch, and french knots — all of which you can learn how to do in our embroidery guide.

We loaf to play with felt food

You can craft these felt artisan breads anytime, but we think they would make a fun Christmas gift for kids. If you want to add more felt food toys to their bakery playset, you could also craft our felt play cafe, felt pie, and felt donuts. We even have a DIY play kitchen you could make!

We would love to see your felt creations, so be sure to share them with us by tagging #MadeWithLia. Or you can always post pictures to our private Facebook group for members.

How to Make Felt Artisan Breads

  1. Gather your tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
  2. Cut out felt according to pattern using a Cricut Maker (optional) or scissors. You will need to tape together the oversized paper pattern for the baguette, and cut out one shape with the cut outs (for the top) and one without (for the bottom).
  3. Whip stitch the inner layer to one side of the bread loaf using one strand of matching floss. Stitch along the cut outs from the top-side. 
  4. Draw darts on the inside of the loaf with a disappearing fabric pen (see PDF pattern for placement).
