DIY Felt Fruit and Veggies with Cricut and Simplicity

Felt food is fun to make – and now it is even easier with Cricut doing the cutting! Recently, Cricut asked if I would share some of the Simplicity Patterns that have been loaded into Cricut Design Space. I jumped at the chance to show you how simple it is to make these felt fruit and veggies! The Simplicity Patterns have already been loaded into Design Space. Just let your Cricut do the cutting, and then follow along on the pattern PDF (which is also accessible through Design Space) to make your felt food!

DIY Felt Fruit and Veggies made with the Cricut Maker and Simplicity Patterns. Follow along to learn how easy it is to make these fun patterns!

I used the Cricut Brand Felt Carousel Sampler pack to make all of this felt food, and my Cricut Maker. If you plan on making the pumpkin, you’ll need to packs of the felt. The other supplies you’ll need include a sewing machine, pins, a needle and thread, pipe cleaners, and the Cricut Fabric Marking Pen.

DIY Felt Banana

The Banana is a great piece to start with. There are not a lot of pieces to cut or sew. Follow along in this video as I show you how to make the felt banana. Start by cutting the pieces on the Cricut. Stitch the two identical pieces together. Then add the third piece, leaving a hole for turning. Turn right side out, and stuff. I’ll show you how to use a ladder stitch to invisibly stitch the banana closed. It is that simple! If you want to add some realism, you can use brown fabric paint to add some spots on your banana as it “ripens!”

DIY Felt Pumpkin

I really like the pumpkin. Perfect for fall decor, this pumpkin is adorable. Follow along in the video as I show you how to cut, stitch, and complete this felt pumpkin. The felt is all cut on the Cricut – the pumpkin body, the leaves, and the stem. Stitch the body together by stitching three segments together to create halves. Make the stem, pin in place, then stitch the two halves together. Turn the pumpkin right side out, then stuff. I’ll show you how to use a ladder stitch to stitch the pumpkin closed. Then stitch on the leaves and use a green pipe cleaner to add some curly vines to the top.

DIY Felt Carrot

Making the felt carrot is very simple – and it can be made with the scraps of the pumpkin! They use the same colors, and the carrot doesn’t need much felt at all.

Make the carrot using just one seam on the sewing machine. Turn the carrot right side out and then stuff. You then create a gather along the top, tuck in the green carrot top, and stitch it into place. It is that easy to whip up this carrot!

 

DIY Felt Apple

I also love the felt apple. Made very similarly to the felt pumpkin. The pieces are a little smaller. But, instead of making the stem out of felt, I made the stem from a brown pipe cleaner that gets glued in place.

 

Now that Cricut has so many Simplicity patterns in Cricut Design space, it is so easy to start your sewing projects! No need to find a store that has your pattern in stock – the digital patterns have already been uploaded. Each piece is cut and marked to perfection, and you don’t have to do any extra work! It takes a lot of the frustration out of sewing if your cutting has been done correctly.

Once you have the pieces cut, you’re just a few seams and a handful of stuffing away from completing your felt food!
