How to Make a Felt Pineapple Plush

  • Select yellow, green, and pink colored felt for the pineapple pattern and another colored felt for the flower pattern. Prepare the template patterns and trace them on the selected felt fabrics. The template includes 2 pineapple bases, 2 leaf patterns, 2 blush patterns and a flower pattern. Cut out the traced patterns from the felt fabrics.

Tips and Tricks

  • This craft requires supervision for children who are not yet comfortable and safe with a needle. Try using fun colors and textures of felt (like glittery felt!) for a fun spin. 
  • If you choose to stuff your pineapple craft be sure to fill it with just the right amount of stuffing. You do not want it to lose its shape by overstuffing it and stretching the felt. It should still be soft and cuddly once filled. 
  • You don’t have to make just one size felt pineapple. Take the template and make it larger and smaller to create a whole pineapple felt collection. 
  • Don’t forget to use the free template to help cute out your felt to ensure the pieces are symmetrical.
