Felt Brownie Tutorial

Here it is.  I finally put together the Brownie tutorial.  Thank you to Julie and Maria for encouraging me to get this up.  (Yes, I have been reading your comments.)

For those of you new to my blog, this is the tutorial for the brownies featured in the Tea Party gift set.


  • Brown Felt
  • Different Colored Felt for the Icing (In the original post, I showed this with pale pink felt.  In this tutorial I will be using white because I am making a less girly version for a friend.  However, I will call out the original colors in the instructions.)
  • Brown embroidery floss matching the brown felt
  • Embroidery Floss in 2 accent colors  (These should stand out against the icing.  I used dark pink and white in the original.  Here I am using maroon and orange.)
  • Scissors
  • Cardstock to make a template
  • Needle
  • Pins
  • Cotton Balls
  1. Make a template.  Cut out one square of cardstock, 1 3/4" x 1 3/4".  Then cut out a strip that is 5/8" x 7 1/2".
  2. Pin the square template to the brown felt.  Cut out a square.  Repeat.  Next pin the long template to the brown felt and cut out the strip.  Finally, cut out the icing piece free-hand from the white (pink) felt.  This should be smaller than your square.  At this point you should have four pieces: 2 brown squares, 1 brown strip, and 1 white (pink) piece.
  3. Place your white (pink) piece on top of the brown square.  Using your orange (dark pink) embroidery floss, make big stitches like sprinkles, stitching the two pieces together as you go.  Make sure you stitch near the edges as well.
  4. Repeat stitching "sprinkles" with your maroon (white) embroidery floss.
  5. Next, line your brownie top that you just stitched along the left top of the brown strip.  The strip will be the sides of the brownie.  Using your brown embroidery floss, stitch one edge of the top to the side piece using the blanket stitch.  (Note on this picture... You should see the icing.  I jumped from step 2 to step 5 without realizing it and had to go back and do steps 3 and 4.  I forgot to retake the picture once the icing was attached.  Whoops.)
  6. When you reach the corner, wrap the strip around and keep stitching.  Repeat until you have stitched all four sides.
  7. Tuck the remaining flap inside.  Cut the remaining piece at a diagonal from the bottom.  Pulling the strip closed, stitch down the seam.
  8. Take the second brown square and line it up along the edge of the brownie.  Stitch the side.  Continue until three of the four sides are stitched together.
  9. Stuff the inside of the brownie with cotton.  Make sure to fill it until its firm and hard to pull closed.
  10. Stitch the remaining side until the brownie is closed.  Knot off your thread and you are done.

I hope you enjoy.  And thank you for the encouragement to post these tutorials.
