Skill level: Novice-friendly, beginner-friendly.

Completion Time: About thirty minutes. The initial attempt can require a little more time.

Finished size: Approx. 6′ (15 cm)

Tip: After sewing the felt peppers, gently roll them in your hand to smooth out any seams and lumps.

Helpful Note: Felt is a textile product in which natural (wool) or synthetic (acrylic) fibers are pressed together. Some types of felt are incredibly soft, while others are robust and durable enough to be used as building materials. I typically use acrylic felt 2 mm thick in my felt crafts. When washing, I had no issues with shrinking or elongation, although some delicate felts can cause you to have these problems. As a result, I advise you to be careful when selecting the felt.

Warning: Children have a very vivid imagination. Some children can bite off felt foods, especially young children can suck on them. Do not forget to disinfect the felts before starting the project so that our little ones can swallow the leftovers of industrial production and play safely.

How to Make Felt Peppers?

  1. Gather craft tools and materials.
  2. Then download the free felt pepper pattern below to your computer.
  3. Cut all the felt pieces according to the felt pattern you downloaded, optionally using a clipper or scissors.
  4. Cut out the pattern pieces using the felt colors you want your peppers to be.
  5. Join the ends of the main pepper pattern piece and sew them together from the bottom up.
  6. When you finish sewing and unfolding the piece, it should look like a funnel.
  7. Turn the piece outward and fill it with fiberfill. Thread a longer embroidery needle with double-thread sewing thread that matches the felt. Make large stitches at the top.
  8. Pull firmly to close the top. Tie a double knot, but do not cut the thread yet.
  9. Make a little hole in the pepper and turn it up. Insert the needle down the top of the pepper.
  10. Continue sewing by going down near where the needle comes out. Sew lower on the opposite seam than you did before. Each time you come, take a pull and then grab the thread. So keep the distortion you made on the way to the next point. Do this all the way through two stitches. When you reach the bottom, return in the same way using the other two stitches. Tie your string in a double knot when you’re done.
  11. Cut the stem and crown pieces from dark green felt. Pin the crown piece to the top of the pepper.
  12. Using two threads of embroidery floss, sew the crown to the pepper using a blanket stitch.
  13. Wrap the body piece tightly and pin it for fastening. Sew the edge to the body using the blanket stitch.
  14. Sew the stem to the top using a blanket stitch.

And your finished felt red sweet pepper is ready! Bon Appetit 😊

Suppose you want to print your felt pattern on a more rigid material such as cardboard to create a longer-lasting pattern. In that case, you can draw the pattern by tracing the shapes on the felt using a ballpoint pen. After removing the pattern and before cutting, remember to secure the felt to prevent the layers from shifting.

I provided you with PDF files of A4 size that contained the felt pattern files. To read and open PDF files, you need Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader is available for free download and installation on your computer on the Adobe website.

Before cutting out the design, you can change the pattern’s size with a copier if you like bigger or smaller objects.
