How To Sew Felt Fruit Brooches!
We’ll start with strawberry! Begin by using my printable sewing pattern to trim the pieces from colored felt.
Mark onto the felt where you want to place the eyes and mouth onto the strawberry. Yes, you can draw straight onto the fabric. Even place the face on top of the marking, or flip it around and sew your drawing to the inside of the brooch.
When you’ve found the perfect face placement, it’s time to install some eyes!
I’ve used some plastic safety doll eyes. These eyes have a post that inserts through the felt with a small washer to hold them in place.
To install safety eyes you simply make a small hole where you want the eye to sit. Insert the post and push the washer backing on with pliers. Once the washer is firmly in place you can snip the end of the posts off.
If you don’t want to use safety eyes, or they simply aren’t available to you, no worries! There are alternatives!
You can also choose to simply draw or paint the face onto your strawberry brooch! You can use embroidery thread to sew the eyes on, or even use beads or tiny buttons instead!
Next I sewed in the tiny mouth, and added some seeds! I made the seeds with embroidery thread split down to 2 strands, and using a single chain stitch (or lazy daisy).
Next I pinned and sewed the top of the strawberry into place, onto the back piece of the brooch.
I secured the pin backing to the back of the brooch by first adding one very small bead of glue to the back of the pin (using a hot glue gun) and pressing it into place on the back of the brooch. I secured the pin backer further by stitching it firmly into place.
I then placed the front and back of the brooch together and sewed the outer edges together. Viola!
My favorite of the felt brooches! The Pineapple felt brooch pin.
Begin by cutting the pieces from the pattern. Using the pattern as a reference draw on where you want the face and lines to appear on the front of the brooch.
I drew the cross hatched lines on my pineapple using a green marker for contrast. I actually drew these on the front of the pineapple as I wanted them to show through for contrasting color.
Install safety eyes, or sew or draw/paint in the eyes and mouth.
Next I used a gold/tan colored embroidery thread to straight stitch in the cross hatched lines.
Time to assemble the pineapple top! Sew the middle piece of the top of the pineapple onto the back as shown below.
Place the last piece of the top of the pineapple on top and stitch into place.
Stitch the entire top of the pineapple onto the back part of the brooch.
Attach the pin backing to the back of the brooch. As above, with the strawberry, I used a small drop of glue to hold the pin in place. I then stitched it firmly into place.
To finish the felt pineapple brooch place the front and back pieces together and sew the outer edges together.
Watermelon and Orange
The orange and watermelon brooches are both made much the same as the above felt brooches!
1. Install the safety eyes or sew in a face.
2. Sew in some details (seeds)!
3. Attach a pin backing.
4. Sew the front and back parts of the brooch together!
I do hope you enjoy making my fun felt fruit brooches! Such a quick and fun summer craft project!
It’s just about that time of year again! The snow has melted, the birds are singing, and the flowers are beginning to lift their heads and peek out from underneath the soil.
Soon they’ll uncurl their leafy appendages and reach for the sun. And everything will bloom in a radiant palette of mother nature!
And all the little furry beasties will awaken and come forth!

I hope you all like hedgehogs as much as I do. I love them! I may be slightly obsessed. And I’m sure this will not be the last hedgehog to make an appearance here on these pages. have created this felt hedgehog ornament pattern just in time for the holidays to make handmade gifts of tiny pocket friendly hedgehog toys. Or add a string to your hedgehog stuffie and you’ve got yourself a adorable hanging ornament as a decoration or to hang on your holiday tree. You could even add a little Santa hat or a tiny knit scarf!
What You’ll Need To Get Started:
- Felt (in two colors)
- doll eyes, beads, or tiny buttons
- needle and thread
- string (optional)
How To Make Your Own Felt Hedgehog Ornament Or Pocket Feltie
Begin by printing the stuffed hedgehog pattern PDF file. Cut all of the pieces as per following the hedgehog ornament pattern.
First pin in place the bonnet piece over the top of the head piece and stitch in place along the rounded part just above the face.
Install eyes and sew in a nose. I have installed a pair of 4.5 mm doll eyes. But you could also use embroidery thread to sew in some eyes, or use beads or buttons.
Next we’ll make the little hedgehog arms.
You will have cut four arm pieces. Match two pieces up each to make a set of two arms. I like to stitch in some little claws with dark brown embroidery thread.
Sew the arm pieces together stitching all around the edges but leaving a small space open to fill with small bits of stuffing. I like to use a toothpick to push the stuffing in. Once you’ve stuffed the arms sew the opening shut.
Pin the face in place on the front body piece of the hedgehog and sew in place.
Pin the finished front body piece to the back body piece and sew them together. Stitch the outer edges of the front body piece all the way around leaving a small space open for stuffing. If you are intending to make this into a felt hedgehog ornament then you may want to stitch in a string at this point.
Stuff the hedgehog full and sew the opening shut.
The last step is to sew in the arms. I like to use a string joint to hold the arms in place. Make a stitch to secure your thread in place on one side of the body. Pin an arm in place on the opposite side of the body. Send the needle and thread through the body and out of where the arm will be held in place. Pin the other arm in place on the opposite side of the body. Send the thread back through the arm just next to where your stitching came through. Send the needle back through and out the other side holding the arm in place.
Repeat this over and over about 3-4 times to hold the arms firmly in place. Tie off the thread on the side of the body underneath one of the arms where it will remain hidden.
