How to Make a Felt Pineapple Bag

How to Make a Felt Pinapple Bag #felt #sewing #easy #pineapple #bag

We love a quirky make, and what better than a trendy pineapple-inspired one? Felt is a fantastic material to work with, and it’s so forgiving that you don’t have to be worried about making a mistake. You’ll feel so proud when people ask where you got your pineapple bag from!

Design and instructions by Zoe Larkins of Love From Hetty and Dave.

You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make

1. Cut out the large yellow felt egg shape, and ten yellow felt scalloped edge strips. Pin the first scallop edge to the large egg shape, trimming of the excess as shown in the photo.

2. With the yellow thread, sew a running stitch along the straight edge to attach the scalloped edge to the ‘egg’.

3. Next, arrange your next strip, so that it overlaps the first, but lays like scales. Again, with running stitch, sew along the edge.

4. Repeat this process, until your pineapple looks like the photo, and you can finish off your sewing thread neatly on the back.

5. Cut out the remaining two yellow felt shapes, and pin on the larger piece to the back of your freshly stitched pineapple.

6. Pin the top half, so it overlaps the bottom half.

7. Using a small running stitch again, neatly sew around the outside of the pineapple.

8. Your pineapple should look like this once you have stitched all the way around.

9. Cut out the green felt leaves, and pin together as shown in the photo.

10. With green thread, sew the leaves with running stitch around the edges.

11. Tie a knot in each end of the cord.

12. Stitch the ends of the cord onto the back of the leaves, taking care not to stitch right through to the front of the leaves.How to Make a Felt Pinapple Bag #felt #sewing #easy #pineapple #bag

13. Sandwich the top of the pineapple between the stitched leaves, and the plain leaf shape behind.

14. Pin all three pieces together.

15. Stitch around the leaves, making sure that the pineapple is securely attached in between. Once you have stitched all the way around the leaves, finish off your sewing, and your pineapple bag is complete!
