We've been using a lot of felt to make things this fall, and for good reason! Felt is inexpensive, soft, durable, and if you are using it in a Halloween costume like our little witch, it's warm! Plus, if you are a little scarce on sewing skills, felt won't fray so you can cut an edge and call it good, no hemming required!
A couple of months ago we made these fun felt pizzas, perfect for a pizza party favor or for some imaginative play, and we love them because the felt naturally sticks to itself while still being easily removable and the toppings can be changed over and over again! So, as Halloween approached and we had felt on the brain, we decided to give the idea of a felt toy like those pizzas a Halloween twist! These stuffed pumpkin face toys are the cutest and they have fun and function! Their faces are interchangeable so kids can get really creative, and we put a pocket in the back of them for storage! These pumpkins are soft, plushy, full of color and you really only need a couple of supplies to make them for a Halloween party favor or to replace messy pumpkin carving Here's what you'll need:
Supplies Needed to Make Stuffed Pumpkin Face Toys
Felt in various colors
Step 1. Trace a pumpkin on your felt. Then, cut out two whole pumpkins and a half pumpkin for the pocket.
Step 2. Layer all three felt pumpkin pieces on top of each other with the half piece on one end. Stitch all three together by stitching around the edge, leaving a few inches open to make room for stuffing.
Step 3. Stuff the pumpkin with Polyfil and close up the pumpkin by completing the stitches around the edge.
Step 4. Cut a variety of face pieces from the remaining felt.
Can you believe that is it?! So simple to put together!
You can store the face pieces you cut for each face in the pocket you made in the back and get to playing right away! Your kids are going to have so much fun mixing and matching the faces to make their pumpkins funny or spooky and MAN, aren't they cute?
We love how simple these are to put together and are already thinking of other holidays we can make them for! I think the cat is my fave.
