I Heart Fake Food - Felt Eggplant Tutorial

Supplies needed:
Dark purple and Green Felt
Green thread and needle
Fabric glue
Pattern below {which can also be downloaded here}

Using the eggplant pattern, cut out all felt pieces.

First, arrange 2 sections of the eggplant body together. Sew one side closed. Only sew half of the bottom of the eggplant closed. With each section, you'll continue to sew half of the bottom, until the entire bottom is fully closed shut. Leave 1/4 of an inch, at the top, unsewn. You will eventually turn your eggplant right side out through the top of the eggplant.

The first sewn side should look like this.

Next, line the 3rd section of eggplant body up along the open side of the 2 sewed pieces.

Sew from the top down on only one side, again, remembering to leave 1/4 of an inch unsewn at the top.

Arrange the final piece of the eggplant body, lining it up to meet the 2 remaining unsewn sides.

Sew down one side and then down the final side.

When all 4 sides are sewn together, there should only be an opening at the top of the eggplant.

Turn the eggplant right side out.

Generously stuff with fiberfill.

Using your needle and green thread {if you prefer, you could use purple thread} sew the top shut. No need to worry about sewing it shut perfectly, this will be covered with the eggplant topper.

Pinch the center of the topper. This will give you an idea of where and how you'll start to develop the stem of the topper. Pull the needle and thread, used to close up the eggplant top, through to where you pinched the top.

Continue pinching and tightly sewing the center of the topper to form a knob shape. As you are creating the stem, you will also want to add a few stitches to secure it to the top of the eggplant body.

Continue sewing and creating the stem until you get something similar to this...

Fold in the corner of the leaves on the topper.

Pinch the corners closed with your fingers.

Sew the pinched corners closed, grabbing some of the eggplant body as you sew. *Repeat for the other 2 corners.

Create a pucker in the top of the leaf. Using your needle and thread, come up from the eggplant body, through the leaf and then back across and through the body to the other side of the leaf, pulling the thread taunt creating a puckering effect. *Repeat for 2 remaining leaves.

Create a similar but smaller pucker at the bottom of the leaf. This not only creates a pucker but also attaches the leaf to the body of the eggplant. *Repeat for 2 remaining leaves.

Grab some glue, the green button bottom and your eggplant.

Center the green button on the bottom of the eggplant, securing it with a dab of glue.

Turn it back over and are done!

As Buddy The Elf would say, 'that's a very nice eggplant, it's very purply'.
