Last summer, my team and I had such a great time coming up with the felt burger and french fries as a fun toy for playtime with your kids. And now I am happy to announce that our menu has expanded! Today we are sharing the templates and tutorial to make an entire play pizza and toppings out of felt.
You will need felt, embroidery floss, and a little bit of poly-fill to make this play pizza. The toppings include pepperoni, ham, mushrooms, olives, green peppers, onions, and pineapple. Find your felt colors for each of these items, plus a light brown for the crust, red for the tomato sauce, and creamy yellow for the cheese. We used a wool blend felt from our shop and it worked like a dream! Next, find matching colors of embroidery floss. You will be doing some basic blanket stitches for the crust, pepperonis, pineapple, ham, onion, and green peppers. Print the PDF template below and cut out each shape as a guide for cutting your felt. For the onions and olives, you will need to cut circle out of the center. I would recommend folding your felt in half and cutting a semi-circle along the fold in order to do this. The olives are so little that it can be tricky!
Follow our step-by-step photo tutorial to help you through the sewing process. Once your pieces are mostly sewn together, you will need a bit of poly-fill to stuff the crust and pineapple pieces. Of course, your play pizza would not be complete without the Perfect Pizza Menu so that your guests can select which toppings they want on their perfect pizza! Simply download the PDF and print it onto regular printer paper or card stock. We printed ours onto printer paper, but card stock will be a bit sturdier if you prefer something that will hold up for hours of play time.

Hi, i have issue with the SVG file.
I got this error in Cricut Design Space:
The uploaded SVG contained the following items that are not supported: Non embedded image elements.
I just looked over the file and found that error. Thanks for pointing it out. Updated and ready to download.
What blade do you use to cut the felt with the Cricut? Do you have a tutorial for cutting felt with the circuit? I’m new to the felt and having a hard time with the felt pulling and not getting a clean cut. Thanks!
Hi Elizabeth. We use the rotary blade for felt. We don’t have a video for cutting felt yet, but we do have this new mini-course that talks about our settings in the cutting lesson. https://liagriffith.com/craft-academy/8-steps-to-create-any-felt-stuffie/
Do you have an SVG file?
The SVG has been added 🙂
Hi! Love the felt food patterns. I made a whole bunch of felt food for my nephews to go with their play kitchen. The younger one is a year old, his brother is three.
A couple thoughts; I am extremely allergic to wool, wool felt is out of the question. I used a craft felt and just inserted a piece of interfacing, or ironed a piece of fuseable
web to a piece of fabric cut in the shape of the food object and tucked inside. I just used whatever was needed to give it the body to hold its shape thru their play. It has been holding up great for several months now.
I made the burgers, wrapped them in deli paper and placed w. fries in brown lunch bags. The pizzas went into cereal box home made pizza boxes. The boys LOVE the food.
The three year old dumped all the food on the floor in a pile, picked it up and started throwing it at people while he yelled “food fight”. Yup, they love the felt food. You can put the boy in the kitchen, but you can’t take the boy out of the boy!!
Ha! Linda this is wonderful to hear, I’m so glad the felt food has brought so much joy to your nephews!
do I need to print size 11×17 too.
This one is 8.5×11, too 🙂
So how can i know which one need to print size 8.5×11, which one 11×17
Most of our patterns are 8.5×11. You’ll know when you open the document, it will indicate the size at the bottom.
What type of specific felt and floss do you use? I tried to make this and they came out pretty floppy. Thanks!
There’s a link in the post to Benzie Design’s wool blend felt that we use, and just standard embroidery floss.
Do you have an example of what your felt patterns look like? I’d like to have an idea of how detailed they are before I pay for them if possible. Thanks!
Hi Kristine, most of our photo tutorials show the patterns in the first or second step. The felt pizza tutorial shows the template pieces cut out in Step 1. Hope that helps!
Thank you so much for the directions and pattern. It so so adorable. My Granddaughter will absolutely love it.
You’re so welcome! 🙂
This is so adorable. I’ve been meaning to make felt play pizza since last year but haven’t gotten around to it. I love the ideas for the toppings 🙂
Thank you, we had too much fun making it:-)
