How to sew Felt Book
I made a felt book for my niece 🙂 The video tutorial is at the end of the post. Here are the pages …
I use this book as a base and added some of my own design. This is the kitchen page …
… Asian style, with wok and the blue gas canister. I try to make the condiments to look like the ones we use. There’s the Tiparos fish sauce , No.1 Hand brand white pepper, and Kikkoman soy sauce . There’s also a refrigerator to store food items :
“Krapaow Kai Dao” Stir-fry basil with fried egg , my favorite food :
Served on pink plastic plate, Thai street food style. LOL
The cover of the book features a word balloon, which new words can be added. The video below covers all the materials and tips + tricks to make your felt book project a success ! Enjoy !

Similar Materials :
Both acrylic or wool felt can be used. Wool will give the project a softer, denser touch. Both have their pros and cons. You will need a larger piece ( 24″ ) if making the book’s pages with felt. My project is 18 x 20 cm ( about 7″ x 8″ ).
I made the patterns by drawing on iron-on interfacing. It adds some body to the pieces and makes cutting out the felt a whole lot easier. You can skip this and use paper and clear tape to make the patterns. Totally doable :
Magic Tape ( like velcro ) is used for adherence. You just need the hard side of the tape, the felt item will stick on them.
Self threading needles are a blessing ! Saved so much time when switching out threads and no eye strains finding the needle hole.

I love this so much Wendy – you’ve still got it! Long time no hear from me I know. Gearing up to get back to making things and just wanted you to know this is super inspiring. Thank you so much for sharing it:)
I’m so happy to hear from you Colleen! Also excited for your plans to get back to making things 🙂 Would love to see your projects ! Right now I am in a crafty auntie mode, making playthings for my niece. So glad you like it, I hope the little girl likes it too 🙂
The little girl is 18 now! But I have children of nieces and nephews who would love something like this. Thank you Wendy!
They grow up so fast ! 😄
p.s. Do you have a recipe you can share for stir-fry basil with fried egg? Sounds delicious!
