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
- Gather your tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
- 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).
- 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.
- Draw darts on the inside of the loaf with a disappearing fabric pen (see PDF pattern for placement).

Adorable!! A felt charcuterie board would be a wonderful project to add to the felt food categories. This bread would go great with it. Maybe some felt cheeses?
Love that idea! We will add it to our idea list 🙂
Yes! Love that idea. I passed it onto Krista.
Thank you! I’ve signed up and looking forward to seeing what other felt food crafts come out! Question for you, I keep seeing like a powdered look on top of some felt loafs of breads or on cookies. How do you get that look? Would you rub chalk on top of the felt after you are done?
If you want that look, would suggest using PanPastel, or yes, the chalk would work too. Here is our full list of felt food to date. https://liagriffith.com/craft/felt-and-fiber-diy-crafts/felt-food/
Love to make felt food for my daughters. Is there a chance I could purchase this pattern without having to become a member?
Hi Alayna! We don’t currently offer a pay per pattern download system, so you would need to sign up for a membership. If you want, you can sign up for a monthly membership at $9.99 and then cancel it immediately by going into My Craft Room, Account Settings, and then Modify Plan. This would allow you to download this pattern plus 4 others of your choice and give you access to our entire monthly craft collection. Of course we would love for you to stay on longer! We have quite a few felt food patterns and we will be adding more — plus we take requests!
Darn! It’s August 31 at 8:05 pm CST and my Project Counter has already reset! I had two left. Where did they go?
Hi Karen, please send an email to email@example.com about this. Thanks!
I tied to ungroup this for my Cricut maker and it wouldn’t let me. what am I doing wrong?
I just tested the SVG file and am not having any trouble ungrouping it. I have noticed some bugs with Design Space lately though so you could try restarting and reuploading the SVG. If you continue to have trouble, please send a few screenshots of what you’re seeing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Could you make felt sushi?
