Scraps of felt
Scraps of fabric
I made the pattern in several sizes download the pattern Here.
If you are going to add fabric to your acorn then cut out a size smaller pattern of fabric than what you use for the felt. Pin your pattern to your fabric you will need to cut two for each acorn.
Cut out your fabric with pinking shears.
Pin and cut out two "nut" pieces from felt with regular scissors.
Pin your fabric to your felt.
Sew or glue the fabric to the felt.
Here is what you should have so far.
Cut out two "shell pieces" from felt (I used embossed felt) and stitch, sew or glue edges together leaving the bottom open.
Stuff the "nut" of the acorn.
Add a small amount of stuffing to the "shell".
Place the "shell" piece over the "nut" piece.
Sew or glue in place.
You are done! Make you some in several sizes. These are really quick and fun to make. Even hand stitching them didn't take long and I love the look of the "blanket stitch" around them.
I would love to see if you make any!
