We are joining in on the fun of the Sew a Softie tutorial hop organized by www.colouredbuttons.com with our Watermelon Slice Softie!

Start with:

  • 2 Squares of Pink Felt
  • 1 Square of Green Felt
  • Black Buttons
  • Thread
  • Needle
  • Scissors
  • Filling
  • Pins, Paper - optional

Create it!

Step 1: Using a pattern cut from paper or freehand, cut two identical triangles from pink felt.

Step 2: To the front of one prink triangle, sew on black buttons.

Step 3: Turning two pink triangles inside out, stitch along outer edge, leaving a few inches open for stuffing.

Step 4: Round the corners for simpler turning, if desired.  

Step 5: Turn triangle right side out, fill with filling and stitch closed.

Step 6: Fold green felt the long way and cut to create approximately 3 inch casing.

Step 7: Fold back corners of green felt in and stitch in place.

Step 8: Wrap the front green felt corner to the back of the watermelon slice and stitch in to place.

Step 9: Repeat steps 6 and 7 on the other side to complete.

This softie is so easy to sew and made from just three pieces of felt - the perfect project to sew together with your child. And, enjoy a little slice of watermelon all year long!
