Felt cheese slices are the perfect addition to other felt food toys. Felt cheese blocks offer a fun variety of play dishes ideal for play kitchens, playsets, or even grill sets.

I designed the felt cheese slices to be as simple as possible. However, it requires some hand sewing to make the spots on the cheese slice. You can find detailed instructions, pictures, and videos on making felt cheese blocks in my article.

You can find the free felt cheese slice or block pattern below, download it to your computer, print it out, and start working. To add some diversity to your felt food, cut the felt pattern in slightly various ways and sew different-looking felt cheese slices.

Felt cheese blocks can be made with craft felts in yellow hues, but you can also try wool blend felts for more authentic colors and play durability. Usually, cheeses have many different colors, so you can create your dream felt cheese slice by choosing felts in different colors.

Felt cheese blocks are a simple hand sewing project that requires only basic sewing skills. You can also make a felt cheese slice using the blanket stitch, the whip stitch, and the French stitch.

Felt toys are great toys for your child’s educational purposes. I’m sure they’re exciting and fun and will add a lot of joy to people’s lives.

Tip: After sewing the felt cheese blocks, roll them in your hand to smooth the seams and lumps.

Helpful Note: Felt is a textile product in which natural or synthetic fibers are pressed together. Some felts are very soft, but others are pretty stiff and strong enough to be used as a building material. I generally use 2 mm – 3 mm thick acrylic felts in my works. When washing, I did not experience shrinkage and elongation problems, but you may experience such issues with some soft felts. With a bit of trial and error, you can get to know the felt you use better.

Warning: We all know that children have vivid imaginations. Some children can actually bite the felt food, and especially young children can suck the felt toys by putting them in their mouths. But, of course, we do not want our children to swallow the residues of industrial production. So, don’t forget to disinfect the felts before starting DIY felting projects.

Tip: I use a sewing needle as fine as possible when sewing felt toys. Because when you use a thin sewing needle while sewing felt, the points where the needles sink are not very obvious, and sewing felt is much easier.

How Are Cheese Blocks Made From Felt?

For the felt cheese blocks, you will need 2 triangular felt pieces, 1 felt bit to wrap around our cheese, and 1 more yellow felt part. The circles I drew on the triangular cheese blocks make the cheese slices more realistic.

  1. Print the felt cheese slice pattern on the printer.
  2. Place the felt cheese slice pattern on the felt and cut the felts according to the pattern.
  3. Fix the felt pieces you cut to each other with the help of a needle so that they do not slip while sewing.
  4. First of all, drill the part holes that will be perforated.
  5. Then secure around the holes with stitches.
  6. Put the darker felt piece under the perforated surface and fasten it together with a needle.
  7. Sew the felt strip around the cheese, starting from the most comfortable part of the triangle.
  8. Then sew the bottom base to the strip, but leave a small gap to fill the fiber inside.
  9. Fill the fiberfill from felt to cheese through the small gap you left and close the gap by sewing.
  10. Here are your felt cheese blocks ready 😊

Making toys from felt food is accessible to DIY projects requiring minimal sewing skills. However, basic sewing skills are all you need to make felt patterns a reality.

With this easy DIY felt patterns and simple instructions I offer you, you can finish the project idea in a short time. Eventually, you’ll have beautiful felt foods that will pay off for your efforts.

You may want to print the patterns on a more rigid material to make the felt pattern last longer. Then, you can draw the pattern by tracing the shapes on the felt using a ballpoint pen on the hard material. After removing the pattern, secure the felt before cutting to prevent the layers from shifting.

The felt pattern files are in PDF format and are printed on A4 paper. To read PDF files, you’ll need Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader is available for free download and installation from Adobe’s website.

You can use a copier to expand or reduce the size of the design before cutting it out if you want larger or smaller objects.
