How to Stitch a Mini French Fries Brooch
This French Fries Brooch is a fun project to make as a gift for a friend, or just for yourself. You’ll only need a few scraps of felt and some basic sewing supplies to make this cute pin.
Why not stitch on your initials to personalize your mini food creation.
You will need:
- Felt fabric: red, yellow
- Safety pin
- Thread: red, yellow
- Scissors: paper and fabric
- Hemostat or tweezers
- Craft Glue (optional)
For this project I have used a plain stitch and a blanket stitch.
1. Print the template at 100% and cut out the pattern pieces.
2. Trace the pattern pieces onto felt fabric and cardboard.
3. Cut out all the pieces from both felt fabric and cardboard.
4. Fold the fries piece in half as per the pattern reference marker. Cut 5 mm rows into the fold, making sure to stop cutting 1 cm from the edge.
5. Sew a pin to the back of the fries box piece as per the pattern reference marker.
6. Sew the cover onto the fries box, as per the pattern reference marker. Use a plain stitch along the edge.
7. Hand stitch your initials into the middle of the cover piece in contrasting thread.
8. Fold the fries box and sew the two sides closed. Use a blanket stitch.
9. Slide the cardboard piece into the fries box. This cardboard supports the frame of the fries box.
10. With the fries piece folded, roll it sideways. Stitch through the bottom of this piece to keep the roll closed.
11. Squeeze the fries into the fries box. You can add a small dab of glue to secure (optional).
All done! Now you have wearable pop food art.
Now that you’ve made a cool french fries brooch, it’s time to complete the meal and make a burger pin.
