veggie garden and bagMy mom and I recently made this fun toy for my son. It turned out cuter than I ever imagined. :)

Supplies:

  • felt
  • embroidery floss
  • polyfil
  • needle
  • scissors
  • wooden crate
  • veggie templates (or create your own)
  • sewing machine

Click here to download the veggie templates.

Steps:

  1. For the garden, cut a piece of brown felt large enough to cover the inside bottom of the crate. You can glue it in place if you want.
  2. cover inside of crate
     
  3. Measure the width of the crate and cut pieces of felt that are 1-2 inches longer than the crate width (this will allow for seams). Decide how tall you want your "garden rows" to be. Cut pieces of felt to make the rows.
  4. Sew along the 3 sides of the felt, leaving an opening for turning and stuffing. Clip the corners.

    Mushroom: Cut out 2 (#1), 1 (#2), and 1 (#3). Sew the #1 pieces together, around the cap, then attach #2. Add the gills. Now stitch on the #3 piece.

    Broccoli: Sew the #1 pieces together. Then put the top of the stem in between the #2 pieces. Sew around the outer edge. Add details to the head if you desire.

    Corn: Sew the #1 pieces together. Put the ear in between the #2 pieces. Sew around the outer edge. Add extra stitches where the husk meets the ear for added security.

    Potato: Sew the two potato pieces together. Add the eyes (using French knots) and other details.

    Peas: Sew the #1 pieces to one of the #2 pieces. Now sew the #2 pieces together. Add the #3 piece and sew in place.
