Free Felt Egg and Bacon Patterns


I find that making small hand-sewn felt objects is fun and relaxing so I have decided to create a series of free patterns for various felt items that can be used for play or decoration. This installment will provide free patterns for a felt fried egg and felt bacon along with a visual stitching tutorial.
Download the pattern pieces here: Felt Egg and Bacon Patterns.

Supplies to Make Felt Fried Eggs and Bacon


  • 9 x 12 inch sheets of felt in white, maroon and cream colors

  • 3 x 3 inch piece of bright yellow or gold

  • Size 5 or 7 embroidery or crewel needle

  • DMC embroidery floss to match all colors of felt

  • Small tuft of polyester fiberfill (or light colored felt scraps)

Making the Felt Fried Egg


Cut the egg patterns out from the printed sheet. Use them to cut one "yolk" from the yellow or gold felt and and two "egg white" pieces from the white felt.

Cut a piece of yellow floss about 12 inches long and separate into two sets of three strands (you will be using three strands of floss throughout this project). Thread your needle with one set of three strands. Place the yolk piece on top of one of the egg white pieces as shown in the photo. Begin stitching the yoke in place with either a running stitch or blanket stitch (a blanket stitch is shown here).

Continue stitching around the yoke until you have stitched about 3/4 of the way around as shown in the photo. Grab a small puff of fiberfill and insert it into the opening to give the yolk some dimension.

Finish stitching around the yoke and tie off the end of your floss securely underneath the yoke so it doesn't show through the white. The top of the egg should look like the photo when it is done.

Now you will stitch the two white pieces together to finish the felt fried egg. This photo and the ones following will show in greater detail how to start and finish the blanket stitching around the white part of the egg without messy knots showing on the right side. To prepare, cut a piece of white floss about 16-18 inches long and separate into sets of three strands. Thread your embroidery needle with one group of three strands and knot at one end.

In this photo, I have knotted my white floss and secured it by stitching through the felt on the wrong side under the yolk section as close to the edge as possible.

Place the top piece of the egg on top of the bottom white felt piece, matching the edges. The floss should be coming straight out from the edge between the two white pieces.
