  • How to make an acorn plushie. Felt Acorn - Step 1
    Step 1

    1. First, cut 2 sets of felt (each) fitting the designs of the acorn cap and the body of the nut as shown here.

    You may modify the specific shade of brown and size as desired. I chose dark brown for the acorn cap and a lighter coffee brown for the body of the acorn nut.

    2. Next, stitch all the way around the body of the acorn nut using the blanket stitch in matching coffee brown embroidery thread.
    Note: You may wish to fill the acorn with stuffing before the final stitches (unless you are intending to create a flatter felt work, say, a bookmark).

    3. Next, stitch around the sides and top of the acorn cap using the blanket stitch in matching dark brown embroidery thread.

    4. Place the stuffed and stitched body of the acorn nut such that its top is slightly enveloped by the bottom edge of the acorn cap.

    5. Stitch the bottom of the acorn cap using the blanket stitch in matching dark brown embroidery thread to close up any gaps.

    Your completed felt acorn should look something like the one shown here. And, you're done! :)
