Create darling felt popsicles with the free pattern that can be used for decor or simply to play with!
Making projects with felt is the best for so many reasons. There are tons of great, bright and happy colors from Kunin Felt to choose from so finding the right one is never a problem. Cutting felt is fabulous because it never frays. Sewing felt is my favorite because embroidery needles slide right through it with ease. I whipped up this adorable free printable felt popsicle pattern and added a fun popsicle word search puzzle too!
Materials and Supplies For Making Felt Popsicles
You will need the following things to create these darling little works of art. This is an easy sewing project so perfect for beginners and kids too. The faces could be drawn with a permanent marker if you are working with kids who don’t know some of the harder stitches like the French Knot.
- Kunin Felt in a Variety of Bright Colors (Rainbow)
- Popsicle Sticks (Colored for the Play Game)
- Anchor Embroidery Floss on Spools To Match Felt Colors PLUS Black and Pink
- Pink Tiny Buttons
- Free Printable Pattern (Grab it later in this post.)
This is my GO TO supply list for all felt crafts.
Supplies Needed for Felt Crafts
- Kunin Felt (Assorted Colors)
- Fabric Scissors
- Sewing Supplies OR Glue (I recommend Fabri-Fuse by E6000)
- Anchor Embroidery Floss on Spools
- Grosgrain Ribbon
Like I said earlier, this project could be simplified for kids. Use these directions as a guide – knowing that adding your own touch of creativity is always optional.
Start by using the pattern on the printable to cut out TWO of each color for the popsicles. I like to put a pin through the pattern and the felt to hold it in place while I cut. Sometimes for little hands, tracing the pattern on the felt is easier and then cutting around it.
Next, cut out TWO pieces with the pattern for ALL the popsicles you plan to make.
After you cut out your pieces, take ONE of each and add a stitched face. I used black embroidery floss to make French Knots for the eyes. I did a basic chain stitch for the mouth, also in black. For the pink button cheeks, I used pink embroidery floss.
Match the fronts to the back of your popsicles and using coordinating colored floss, whip stitch around each one, leaving the bottoms open.
To use these as a fun little game, have kids match the color of the stick to the matching popsicle by sticking it inside. You could paint sticks in ALL the colors if you wanted to. I found these sticks already colored at the Dollar Tree.
They are simply darling. I think they would be super fun to glue the sticks in the middle and stuff them a little to make a party garland or little plush toys.

You might have seen this list from me before but I think it is worth sharing over and over. Sometimes the people in the back need to hear things a few times, right? There are so many great ways to use free printables. Here are some of my favorites.

- Batch some up to make an activity book. This is great for a road trip!
- Print and use at a place setting on the table to create a conversation starter.
- Add them to goody bags. By the way, goody bags are not just for birthday parties.

- Drop a few off at the local coffee shop with fun pencils to spread some happy.
- Cut them up to make cards, gift wrap and decorations.
