Today, I share with you my first ever tutorial.
I truly feel anyone with the most beginner sewing skills can use this. I’m not that skilled myself. Anyhow, I hope it helps. Please feel free to leave comments, suggestions or just a hello!
Felt Cheeseburger tutorial by Krust from www.Krustal.com.
Thanks for checking this out! This is my first time creating a tutorial. I hope this makes sense to all who use it.
SUPPLIES (Things you’ll need):
- 1 sheet tan, 1 sheet beige, 1 sheet brown, 1 sheet red, 1 sheet cheese orange, 1 sheet dark green, 1 sheet light green
- Fabric Sheers/scissors
- Sewing machine. Threaded with white thread
- Ball point pen
- 2 round objects to trace. 1 about 4″-5” wide, and another about an inch wider. (I used a drinking glass and a bowl)
- Notepad and pencil.
- Stuffing (not pictured)
- Embroidery thread in beige, and brown.
- 10. 1 large hand sewing needle for the embroidery thread.
LETTUCE: Start by drawing a lettuce leaf about 5” high on a blank sheet of paper. If you choose to, you could print an image of one to trace or cut out. Once you have a shape your happy with, cut it out.
Once you have your leaf cut out, stitch a little branch pattern up the center. (this is not totally necessary, it just adds a little somehtin’ somethin’ to it), and really it’s a lot easier than it looks.
Just start with your leaf upside down at the base, and start sewing. Take your foot of the pedal at each bump to stop the machine and use your hands to turn the leaf. Keep going all the way back around to the base.
Repeat with a lighter or darker green (also optional, one leaf is plenty, I just like the different colors) they should end up looking something like this:
CHEESE: Super easy. Cut out to even size squares.
Place squares together and sew all the way around at the edges.
TOMATO SLICE: Trace your smaller round object on a sheet of red felt. Cut out the circle you traced. You can choose to add some stitching to make it look a more like a tomato slice, or leave it blank.
BURGER PATTY: Trace your larger round object on the dark brown felt 2 times. And cut out both pieces.
Put both circles together and stitch around at the edges leave an inch opening.
Turn the sewn together pieces inside out (or right side in?) as shown. Fill with stuffing, and use some brown thread and a hand sewing needle to stitch the opening shut.
Inside part of HAMBURGER BUNS: Trace your larger round object on the beige felt 2 times. And cut out both pieces. Set aside.
Outside part of HAMBURGER BUNS: Trace your larger round object on the tan felt 2 times. And cut out both pieces. With one piece, use the beige embroidery thread to stitch on little sesame seeds.
Place together with one beige circle and stitch around at the edges leave an inch opening. Stuff lightly, and continue to stitch closed with the machine. Repeat (minus the sesame seeds) with the remaining two circles of beige and tan felt for the bottom part of the bun.
Put it all together and it should look something like this:
