Add some felt kiwi to your fruit bowl! Our designer Krista has been growing our collection of felt foods, so it now has its own category on our site. This is a good sewing project for beginners and great for learning some 3D construction skills and basic embroidery stitches.
To make this felt kiwi, you will need to know how to do a straight stitch, detached chain, whip stitch, and blanket stitch. If you are still learning these stitches, you can use our embroidery guide to practice.
Kiwi be any cuter?
We are always exclaiming over how cute Krista’s felt creations are. And on top of being adorable, they are very realistic! Along with showing you how to make a felt kiwi, the tutorial will also show you how to make small kiwi slices — perfect for creative play. Using layers of fusible interfacing helps to get that perfectly sliced look, and we will guide you step by step on how to make your kiwi look just like the real thing.

Oh amazing!! Thank you!
When I upload the SVG to Cricut Design it doesn’t include the green part. Is it an issue on my end?
Hi Lauren. Cricut made some software updates, so we have to go back into the original file and make a workaround so all of the pieces show up. It is done so you can download the new version.
