A while back, we had a member request that we make some felt cheese to go along with our felt artisan breads. Of course, we couldn’t stop at just cheese and decided to do a whole charcuterie plate! Designed by Krista, our pattern for this DIY craft includes four types of cheese as well as three different kinds of crackers and green olives.
This is a simple, beginner-friendly felt project that you can easily cut out with your detail scissors. Or you can always use your cutting machine and rotary blade with our SVG file.
Say Cheese, Please
Out felt cheese and cracker plate is such a fun addition to your kid’s felt food collection. If you’d like, you can also add some felt fruit or cookies and biscuits for a sweet treat. Another fun idea is to make a little felt basket for a picnic.
We’d love to see your felt creations so be sure to share photos with us on our crafters community page! Or you can post on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
