Sewing Tutorial: Felt Hot Chocolate

Felt Hot ChocolateWelcome!  Today we’re going to make a big mug of hot cocoa that even little ones can enjoy! Play food is a great beginner’s sewing project and can be altered to make food as simple or as fancy as you’d like.

This tutorial will focus on creating the set with a sewing machine, but you could also hand sew the items.  If you don’t sew, you could use felt fabric glue to glue the pieces together.  When making felt foods please keep the age of the child you’re making the project for in mind.  Children who still put things in their mouth should never be given small objects as these would pose a choking hazard.

When making felt food you can use whatever type of felt you desire.  Craft felt is easy to work with, cheap and easily obtainable but it will not wear as well as wool felt.  Craft felt may get pilly over time, but you can wash it with warm soapy water and use a lint shaver to get rid of pills.  If the item doesn’t contain a pipe cleaner or glue, you could even run it through the washing machine.

Wool felt will wear better and last longer.  If you’re creating something that you’d like to pass down from child to child, wool felt is best.  If you plan to use wool felt, you may want to first practice on craft felt so you don’t waste money on the more expensive stuff.  I typically use eco-fi felt which is made of recycled plastic bottles.

Let’s get started!  You will need the following to create your Felt Hot Chocolate:

  • Felt in red (or a color of your choosing) for the mug, brown, tan, and white.
  • Polyfil to stuff the hot chocolate mug
  • Scissors
  • Monofilament thread or coordinating thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Hand sewing needle
  • The hot chocolate mug template and fully illustrated sewing tutorial. Do not scale the file to fit, print as actual size:  Felt Hot Chocolate.

This sewing project pairs nicely with our easy peasy felt cookies.  And it’s one set of cocoa and cookies that Santa is sure to love!
