Play Food - Free Felt Potato Chips Pattern

Here is my next installment on how to make faux food - potato chips made out of vanilla colored craft felt. You can make these very easily by hand sewing them or you can make them by machine sewing them...the choice is yours. You can make your chips in a variety of sizes or make them all the same size.

Supplies Needed:

Vanilla colored craft felt
Vanilla colored embroidery floss
Sewing Needle

Pattern: I hand drew an oval shape on a piece of paper and used it for my pattern. You can also trace around a real potato chip to get your pattern.

You will first want to cut out your 2 matching oval shapes from vanilla colored craft felt. Using 3 strands of vanilla colored embroidery floss, hand sew vertical lines (stitches) on each oval piece of felt. These lines will represent the ripples in your potato chips. Once you have done that to both ovals, place your 2 ovals together with the wrong sides touching. Using 2 strands of vanilla colored embroidery floss, whip stitch the two ovals together. If you pull your stitches semi-tightly, it will cause your felt chip to curl up a give you the natural shape of the chip.

If desired, skip the hand sewing and use your sewing machine which saves a lot of time.
