Sewing Tutorial: Felt Pumpkin Pie

Felt Pumpkin Pie TutorialWelcome!  Today we’re going to finish off our Thanksgiving Dinner Set with a big slice of pumpkin pie! 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 Pumpkin Pie:

  • Felt in orange, tan, and white
  • Polyfil to stuff the slice of pie
  • Scissors
  • Monofilament thread or coordinating thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Hand sewing needle
  • The fully illustrated and detailed pumpkin pie slice tutorial which can be downloaded here. Do not scale the file to fit, print as actual size:  Pumpkin Pie Tutorial.
