Felt strawberries are pretty easy to make, and once you’ve made them, it’s so hard to stop, you’ll want to make new ones all the time. You can easily create a bowl filled with felt strawberries. You can make felt strawberries any size you want, but this felt strawberry template is for real-size ones.

Our felt strawberry template also has two different strawberries, pointed and round. You can sew what you want, or both templates, and how they are made is the same.

In addition, you can make felt strawberries in different shapes. Still, you can also use different red felt tones to differentiate your felt strawberries from each other to get more realistic looks. Felt strawberries are a simple hand sewing project that requires only three types of stitches. You can also make felt strawberries using the blanket stitch, the whip stitch, and the French stitch.

If you need assistance with the blanket stitch, French stitch, or whip stitch, you can find the information you need by browsing our embroidery guide.

Given the shapes, felt strawberries are an easy project to cut by hand. You can also review our article “How to Cut Felt and Felt Templates,” which contains information on cutting your felt templates.

Helpful Note: Felt is a textile made by pressing natural (wool) or synthetic (acrylic) fibers together. Some felts are incredibly soft, while others are strong enough to be used as a building material. In most of my works, I use a 2 mm thick acrylic felt. While washing, I didn’t have any shrinkage or elongation issues, but some soft felts may have such problems.

You can also read our article “What are the Felt Types” to learn more about felt types.

Warning: Children have vivid imaginations; some actually bite felt food, and even small children can suck it. Of course, we don’t want our children to consume the byproducts of industrial production. As a result, before beginning this project, disinfect the felt.

How to Make Felt Strawberry?

  1. Gather craft tools and materials.
  2. Then download the free felt strawberry 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. After rolling or folding the strawberry shape from the ends you cut, start sewing it together from both ends.
  5. After sewing, the bottom side of the felt strawberry will be closed, and the top side will be open.
  6. Turn the felt strawberry inside out.
  7. Fill the fiber from the open-top side. You might be unsure of how much space you need to fill. If you want a slightly hard strawberry, you can fill it quite full.
  8. After filling the fiberfill, close the top by sewing. Pull it off tight and secure with a few stitches. You can use a running stitch along the edge.
  9. Then flatten the handle shape by rolling it, sewing the edges, and turning it into a handle.
  10. Sew the strawberry stalk you created so that it is in the middle of the leaf and vertically.
  11. Then join the leaf and stem by stitching the leaf to the top of the strawberry.
  12. The last step is to sew the seeds of the strawberry into tiny ball knots with French stitch using white or cream-colored thread.
  13. Then continue going through the stem of the strawberry, forming more seeds. If you pull your yarn tight, you can create cute little bottoms that make it look more like a natural strawberry.
  14. Your felt strawberry is finished, bon appetit 😊
