  • How to make a food plushie. Summer Squash Fun - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut out your felt. You will need yellow and green (for the top).

    You will be cutting out a vaguely butterfly shape and a long skinny piece with a bulbous bit at the end from the yellow to make the body of the squash.
    From the green you will cut a small circle and a short skinny bit for the top.

    Step 2

    Fold the yellow in half pin it together to avoid slippage, and cut out a shape something like a summer squash. When you open it it will look like a butterfly (see above photo)

    The long shape in yellow should be approximately the length of the edge the shape to the left.
