How to Make a Felt Mushroom Halloween Basket
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
- Cut out felt according to template using a cutting machine with a rotary blade (optional) or scissors. You will need a longer cutting mat for the big pieces. Measure and cut out the rectangles for the toadstool basket stem and strap.
- Whip stitch the spots onto the toadstool cap pieces where you want them using 2 strands of white floss. Keep them placed away from the top-middle 1″ for the darts later.
- Cut out and iron the firm interfacing onto the backsides of their corresponding felt pieces. Use a press cloth between your iron and project to prevent the wool felt from burning. Note that the toadstool cap underside piece has two layers of interfacing, for extra rigidity. Iron them on one layer at a time.
