Sharing is caring!

I think felt letters are so cute and there is so much you can do with them. Why don’t you start by making your own?!

Putting together your own felt letters is an easy task and you won’t have to worry about buying them. 

This way, you can make any word or phrase without the risk of not having the letters you need to use. This makes everything less stressful.

Felt Letters

In order to make your felt alphabet letters, you will need letters to look to as your base. Lucky for you, I have something that can help with that.

The instructions come with free printable templates so your letters can be perfect and even. You will not have to worry about crazy measuring techniques. 

In addition to that, the directions have pictures to aid you in the process. The steps are very easy, but pictures never hurt. 

You and the kiddos can use the felt letters for whatever you want them for. Maybe you want to spell their name out above their bed. 

You could also help your little one work on recognizing their letters with them. There are so many uses and so much time to explore.

There is nothing better than an easy craft that can have multiple uses. You can make more at any time you need as well. How convenient is that?!

You can also try making your own felt board by using the same techniques used in this craft. It is always a great idea to make a craft work for you in different ways.

I have been doing some renovating and decorating around my homer recently. I think adding some felt letters would be a good way to continue.

Instructions

green, black, and pink flet; orange scissors and detail scissors, markers, and pins

  1. Cut out letters from the printable template. Then trace paper letters onto the color of felt that you would like the face of the letter to be with a washable marker.
    Tip One: Print letter template on cardstock if you plan to use them more than once.
    Tip Two: Do not use heat soluble pens (like the ones meant for sewing). The heat from the iron will melt felt.tracing letters a,f,p,j onto felt paper
  2. Stack the felt sheet with letters on top of two more sheets of felt. Consider using less attractive colors for the middle layer because it won’t be seen.up close of traced letters on different colors of paper
  3. Place several straight pins through all three layers of felt, avoiding the traced lines.pins going through pink felt to keep them together
  4. Sew along the lines of the traced letters. You can use a straight sewing foot or a free motion foot. If using a straight foot, lift the presser foot at each corner and turn the felt to continue sewing. Stitch slowly when going around curves.
    Tip Three: Sew as much as you’d like within each letter. Using a free motion foot is a great way to create designs, much like quilting.sewing machine sewing together pink felt letters to keep them together
