Today’s DIY project is a new twist on an old favorite! Grilled hotdogs are a 4th of July staple and summertime classic—as are burgers. Since we already have a felt burger, we thought it would be fun to create a felt hot dog. So, we turned to our designer Krista, who is responsible for creating all of our amazing felt food toys, and this is what she came up with!

To craft your own felt hot dog with toppings, just download our pattern and photo tutorial below. Both the PDF and SVG file also include the pattern for a hot dog tray.

Frankly, We Love Felt

Felt is one of our favorite crafting materials, especially when it comes to kids’ toys. It’s soft, easy to work with, and comes in so many great colors. For this felt hot dog, our designer Krista used eight different colors of felt. You can find all of these colors linked below, but you can always use what you prefer. However, the quality of your felt does matter!

Along with your felt hot dog, you can make all the standard toppings, including ketchup, mustard, onions, and relish. If you craft a few grilled hot dogs and topping choices, your kiddo can serve up different options for everyone playing along. And if the felt hot dogs are being roasted over a campfire, we highly recommend some felt s’mores for dessert!
