handmade felt toadstool treat basket

Toad-ally adorable

We cannot get over how cute this felt mushroom Halloween basket is! And it can even be used past the holiday for pretend play or as bedroom decor. If you’ve been around for a while, you know we love the woodland theme, so you can find tons of ideas if your kid wants to keep it around.

Embroidery stitches used: Blanket, whip, and backstitch. For more guidance on these stitches, check out our embroidery guide.

How to Make a Felt Mushroom Halloween Basket

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
