How to Sew a Felt Badge – Mushroom

I will show you step by step how to make this excellent mushroom badge using the free template sheet. Get it HERE.

First things first, find the mushroom templates on the sheet.

There are 2 mushroom groups but one is teeny tiny so use the bigger one.

Once you have cut out the paper pieces draw around them onto the felt with pen or pencil.

Sneaky tip – You can get an awesome fade away pen from sewing shops, they are very cool but not essential!

You will need to cut out 2 of the mushroom shaped piece. One will be for the back and one for the front.

You need 1 of the narrow eye shaped piece, and 1 of the stalk piece.

Check out the three pictures above. Line up your pieces the same as picture 2.

Sew together – if you have a similar colour thread use it!

Line the stalk piece up like picture 3. Stitch it onto the rest of your pieces.

To finish off you sew the safety pin or badge pin onto the other mushroom shaped piece. Then stitch the 2 mushroom shapes together. If you would like a little more help with this check out the second how to spider badge video HERE.

I hope you have fun making this one, post any pics onto our facebook page. It would be great to see your amazing creations!
