Download, print and cut out our free avocado pattern.
Trace the patterns on the felt colors that you choose. These are the colors that we used:
- Avocado base: Dark green
- Avocado body: Medium green
- Cheeks: Pink
- Heart: Brown
Take the smaller base cutout (medium green) and use a pen or pencil to draw the eyes and mouth to make a face near the narrow top part.
The eyes are two simple arches, and the mouth is a traditional smiley face mouth.
Using a needle with black thread, stitch along the traced eyes and mouth using a basic stitch.
I added a few curved lines to make eye lashes along the eyes.
Stitch the two small blush circles on either side of the face just underneath the eyes. Use pink thread and a needle to make basic running stitches.
Place the felt heart cutout below the face near the bottom side of the green base.
Thread a needle with matching thread for the felt heart and stitch to the avocado body.
Place the medium green avocado body on a larger dark green base.
Thread your needle with light green thread and stitch the light green base to the dark green base using a simple running stitch.
Place the other dark green base under the stitched avocado base pattern.
Thread a needle with dark green thread and start stitching around the sides of the 2 dark green bases to close them around their open sides.
VARIATION: If you would like to make this an ornament, you will need to add a loop of ribbon between the two dark green felt patterns. This will be the hanger.
I used blanket stitches for the sides, but you can use any stitch you feel comfortable with.
Leave a small opening along the bottom but do not cut your thread off yet.
Use cotton stuffing, fiber fill, or scrap felt pieces to stuff the avocado as plush as you would like.
Close the small opening with more hand stitching after you have stuffed the avocado plushie. Continue using the needle and dark green thread to finish the seam.
Knot the thread in the back of the avocado about 2-3 times when you are done to secure the stitching. Cut off the excess thread.
