How To Make Cucumber

You can find the free felt cucumber pattern below, download it to your computer, and start working by printing it out. To add some variety to your felt vegetables, you can cut the felt pattern in slightly different ways to sew different-looking felt cucumbers. After all, not all cucumbers look precisely the same!

A felt cucumber is a simple hand sewing project that requires only two types of stitches. You can make felt cucumbers using just the blanket stitch or the whip stitch. You can also make felt cucumbers in different shapes to make your felt cucumbers different from each other and get more realistic looks. You can also differentiate your cucumbers by using different shades of green felt.

If you need help with doing a blanket stitch or whip stitch, you can check out our embroidery guide to learn the details.

Given the shapes, felt cucumbers are an easy project to cut by hand. When you have finished preparing your cucumbers, you can enlarge your garden by adding other felt vegetables and fruits to your collection.

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

Helpful Note: Felt is a textile where natural (wool) or synthetic (acrylic) fibers are pressed together. Some felts are very soft, but others are strong enough to be used as construction material. I generally use 2 mm thick acrylic felt in my works. When washing, I did not experience shrinkage and elongation problems, but you may experience such issues with some soft felts.

Warning: Children have vivid imaginations; some really bite felt food, and tiny children can suck them. Of course, we don’t want our little ones to swallow the remnants of industrial production. Therefore, disinfect the felt before starting this project.

How to Make a Felt Cucumber

  1. Gather craft tools and materials.

  4. You can use dark green felt for the stem and long stem of the felt cucumber and light yellow felt for the small flower stem.
  5. To make cucumbers from felt, first of all, sew 4 dark green felts that you have cut into each other and join them together.
  6. Leave some space at the top and bottom of the joining process. When you assemble the felt in this way, it will be easier to fill the fiberfill.
  7. After sewing is finished, turn the felt cucumber inside out.
  8. Then stuff the fiberfill into the felt cucumber.
  9. When you’ve finished the filling process, sew the remaining top and bottom sections together from the inside out. You can sew the ends in a round shape.
  10. Round the stems and sew them from the inside out and pin them to the ends of the cucumber.
  11. You can use white or cream-colored thread to create the dots on the stem of the cucumber.
  12. To make dot speckles, first, dip your thread in the seams of the cucumber and then do the exact three times where you will make dot speckles to create a dot or speck form.
  13. You can also create spots at different points by penetrating again with your needle.
  14. After creating dot spots, your felt cucumber will be ready.
  15. Your felt cucumber is finished, bon appetit 😊
