Last month, Krista made these cute felt cookies. So now we’re balancing out the treats with some veggies! These felt radishes are a great beginner-intermediate project and a fun addition to our felt root vegetables that we crafted last year.

To get started, check out our tools and materials list below. Then download our pattern and tutorial at the end of this post.

A Totally Rad(ish) DIY

Instead of making a classic red radish, we chose two different shades of pink for our felt radishes. One is a bright magenta pink and the other is a soft rose. Radishes do come in other shades, so feel free to choose any felt colors you want. For example, you could make them in a purply plum felt color or a deep red color like cranberry instead.

If you are making these felt radishes for your kids, you could also craft them a paper basket to carry their veggies in. Or you could make our macrame basket. Both options are perfect for pretend play!

Skill level: Beginner-intermediate

How to Make Felt Radishes

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download our pattern below.
  2. Cut out felt according to pattern using a cutting machine with a rotary blade (optional) or scissors. 
  3. Pin together two side pieces. Blanket stitch together along one edge, starting at the top of the radish and down to the tip, using 2 strands of matching embroidery floss.
  4. Match the edges with a third side piece and continue to blanket stitch around the tip and then up the second edge. Knot off the floss at the top.
