Hey everybody, here is my newest felt craft pattern. A easy felt mushroom pattern. This would be a perfect addition for your mushroom decor. I thought about making this into a hanging ornament. But, I decided not to make it an ornament. I think this would be perfect for a decoration for a little girl’s fairy land.
Can’t you just see a little fairy forest decorated with these felt mushrooms. Also for a cute play mushroom house. Or, you could make this into a mushroom pincushions. I made the pattern to look like a real mushroom. Even though the most common colors of real mushrooms are brown or white, I like to make these mushrooms in red. There really are red mushrooms also green, blue, purple and yellow mushrooms. There are a lot of colors that mushrooms come in.
This felt mushroom is a easy felt craft to make. I would say that the skill level for this felt mushroom pattern is beginner. You need to know how to do blanket stitches and whip stitches and french knots. And just follow the detailed instructions below. I make the mushroom stem out of felt but you could do wooden spool stems. You could also use a a cork. And you can use whichever kind of felt you prefer. You also use embroidery floss and a hot gun glue.

Does felt come in patterns? Yes, felt comes in many vibrant colors and patterns. In fact at my Hobby Lobby there are quite a few pretty felt patterns. There are ones with tie-dye, doughnuts, and many more.
How do you trace a felt pattern? First you have to print out your pattern or draw the pattern on a piece of paper. Next cut out the pattern pieces. Lay the pattern pieces on felt. Using a whatever marking tool you prefer, trace around the pattern pieces. Now you can cut out all the felt pieces making sure to cut inside the lines. This way maybe easier than laying the paper on the felt and cutting around the paper.
What is the best marking tool for felt? Some of the best marking tools for felt are tailor’s chalk and fabric markers. There are different kinds of fabric markers you could use. There are some more permanent or some erasable. But chalk is also a really good marking tool for felt. I prefer to use marking tools that are erasable.
Can you use sidewalk chalk to mark fabric? Yes, you can use sidewalk chalk instead of tailor’s chalk. You can find in many stores and it’s cheap compared to the other fabric marking tools. Plus you can get it in so many different colors. So, if want to use a pink piece of chalk for this project. Or, a lime green piece for another you have plenty of options.
What size needle is best for felt? Since I hand sew all my felt projects I just can tell you what hand sewing needle size I like to use. I actually use an crewel embroidery needle size 7. I’ve used this needle for most of my felt project and actually I got this size of needle in felt project kit. And I like the size and everything so this is my preferred needle for felt crafts.
What is the best thread for felt? The best thread is actually embroidery floss. You usually separate the floss and use a couple of stands of the embroidery floss at a time. Embroidery floss also comes in many, many colors, the thread color you use up to you. If you want to match the thread to the felt or you want to make the thread pop by using a different color than the felt.
Here is the list of material you’ll need for this felt mushroom pattern.

The finished mushroom is approx. 2″ wide and 2″ tall.
Step 1: Using the template above cut out your felt pieces. Remember felt has no right side or wrong side.
Step 2: Take the mushroom top and stitch the slits together doing the whip stitch and using two stands of embroidery floss. This should create a bowl shape with the top of the mushroom cap.
Step 3: To create the white spots on top of the mushroom. Take two stands of white embroidery floss and create a bunch of french knots on the top of the mushroom. Create as many french knots across the top as you want.
Step 4: The next step is to stitch the mushroom top to mushroom bottom. Place the mushroom bottom to the bottom of the mushroom cap. Doing the blanket stitch, stitch through the layers of felt around the mushroom, stopping about an 1 1/2″ away from where you started. Stuff the mushroom with the poly fill. Finish stitching the mushroom closed. Lay the mushroom top to the side for now.
Step 5: Now we’re going to work with the stalk pieces. Take the rectangle stem piece and stitch the shorter ends together.
Step 6: Now attach one of the felt circles to the end of the stem. Stuff the stem with poly fill. Attach the other circle to the top of the stalk.
Step 7: Hot glue the base of the stalk to the center of the bottom of the mushroom base.
There is you a small mushroom. You could even try printing the template at different percents to make different sizes of finished mushrooms. This would also be a beautiful decoration with any mushroom decor. You could also make this into mushroom ornaments for a Christmas tree.
To make these mushrooms into Christmas ornaments. I would finish the mushroom top and before I stitch the mushroom top and bottom together. I’d take a 8″ length of embroidery floss run it through the top and tie the thread ends in a secure knot in the inside of the mushroom. You might also be able to use a ribbon loop to hang the ornament.
