You can also use the felt cucumber slices as felt pickles in felt dinnerware and felt hamburgers. You can also take the template as an example and make felt zucchini slices with minor changes because they are almost the same. 

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

Then, cut the felt pattern in slightly different ways to sew different-looking felt cucumber slices to add variety to your felt vegetables. After all, not all cucumbers are identical!

Felt cucumber slices can be made with craft felts in shades of green and cream, but you can also try wool-blend felts for more authentic colors and playability. Typically, cucumbers have many different colors, so you can create your dream felt cucumber slice by choosing different colored felts.

Felt cucumber slices are a simple hand sewing project that requires only three types of stitches. You can also make a felt cucumber slice using the blanket stitch, the whip stitch, and the French stitch. If you don’t know how to do the blanket stitch, French stitch, or whip stitch, you can learn the felt stitching details by browsing our embroidery guide.

Tip: After you’ve sewn your felt cucumber slices, roll them in your hand to smooth out any seams and lumps.

Helpful Note: Felt is a textile product that presses natural or synthetic fibers together. Some felts are incredibly soft, while others are stiff and strong enough to be used as building materials. I typically use 2 mm – 3 mm thick acrylic felts in my work. While washing, I didn’t have any shrinkage or elongation issues, but some soft felts may have such problems. You can get to know the felt you use better with trial and error.

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 sewing needles as fine as possible when sewing felt toys or vegetables. 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 To Make Cucumber Slices from Felt?

To make cucumber slices out of felt, you need 2 round felts, 10 tiny droplet felts for cucumber seeds, and a darker green strip to surround the cucumber slice. You do not need to use any glue in making felt cucumber slices. I do not recommend using glue anyway.

  1. Print the felt cucumber slice pattern on the printer.
  2. Place the felt cucumber 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, separate the round pieces you cut from dark green felt and the droplets for seeds.
  5. For cucumber seeds, place the droplets cut from 10 pieces of white felt in the middle of the round slices and sew them.
  6. Sew the droplets in the middle of both round pieces.
  7. To sew a strip around our cucumber slice made of two-piece felt, first, start sewing on one round piece.
  8. Then add the other piece to the round strip and sew.
  9. When sewing two round pieces, leave a small space before joining them. This void will come in handy to fill the fiberfill.
  10. Fill the fiberfill into the gap you left and close the gap by sewing.
  11. And your felt cucumber slice is ready! Bon appetit 😊

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

All the felt toys I share and recommend to you are sewn by hand and do not require a sewing machine. With these easy, do-it-yourself felt patterns and simple instructions, you’ll be able to finish this project idea in no time, and you’ll eventually have beautiful felt fruits and vegetables to show 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 design by tracing the shapes on the felt using a ballpoint pen on the hard material. Secure the felt before cutting after removing the pattern to prevent the layers from shifting.

The felt pattern files that can be downloaded are PDF and A4 in size. To view PDF files, you will need Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader is available for free download from Adobe’s website.

If you prefer larger or smaller items, use a copier to enlarge or reduce the size of the pattern before cutting it out.

Yum! Happy Felt Food!
