Tutorial for Making a Wool Felt Mushroom

You will need: circle of red wool felt for the top that is approx. 2 1/2 inches, approx. 1 1/4 inch circle of cream color for the underside, approx. 1 inch by 3 inch piece of pink felt to roll for stem, 1/2 inch x 3 inch piece of green cut like grass.   

Roll stem and sew so it cannot unroll.  Wrap grass around the bottom of the stem and tack on with green thread.  Do a gathering stitch around the red circle.  Pull gathers so that it makes a little pouch and add fiber fill.  Leave opening at the bottom of the top circle slighly smaller that the cream color circle.  Attach cream circle.  Attach stem.  Do a few French Knots on the top.  You are done! 

If you make one, please send me a pic - I would love to see your creativity with these mushrooms. 

Thanks for stopping by - Cindy
