What kind of play kitchen would it be if you didn’t have play pizza? This cute and easy felt pizza aims to please. All you need is a few pieces of felt, some thread, and some stuffing to make this adorable toy felt food. Here is how I made it.
- Tan felt
- White or Off White felt
- Red felt
- Burgundy or Brown Felt
- Embroidery thread – Tan, White, Red, and Brown
- Something to use for stuffing (Cotton Balls or Poly-fil)
- Printed pattern (Click here for our Free Pizza Pattern)
- Embroidery needle
Step 1. Cut out your felt pieces using the provided pattern.
Step 2. Using one of your crust triangles, line up the “sauce” felt and begin sewing only along the top edge using your red embroidery thread and embroidery needle. I used a simple whip stitch for this and hid the top of the stitch slightly behind the red felt.
Step 3. Line up your pepperonis (I used brown for the pepperonis because it is what I had on hand, but you could use a burgundy if you have it) on the cheese, then begin sewing them in place.
Step 4. Line up your felt pieces and sew your cheese piece to your sauce felt using white thread. (I could have been neater about the stitching for this, but in the end, it gave it some character.) I found this easiest when you go through the crust layer, sauce and into the cheese instead of just trying to sew the cheese to the sauce.
Step 5. Add your second tan triangle to the back of your crust/sauce/cheese layer and blanket stitch along both sides.
Step 6. Sew together the top and sides of the 2 edge crust pieces using a blanket stitch and tan embroidery thread.
Step 7. Add the edge crust to the pizza slice as shown in the image above. Be sure to leave and opening to stuff your crust before finishing.
Step 8. Using poly-fil or cotton balls, stuff the crust edge, the finish sewing the crust shut.
Felt toy foods can be so much fun for children and adults. I have loved creating these and it seems the possibilities are endless. Felt and embroidery floss are so inexpensive that you can make a lot of these felt foods for just a few pennies. Be sure to look out for our upcoming felt craft projects.
