project: pie plush for your valentine

Sweetheart Pie

A few years back, I made a pie that I called "Cranberry Cherry Who Needs Love Pie." This is what we do when we're feeling lonely on Valentine's Day. But if you've seen the things I've been making, you hopefully know that I'm not down on this lovey holiday...even as a single girl. Which is why I've called this soft piece of pie Sweetheart Pie, even if she's looking a little forlorn.

If you'd like to make a slice of pie for yourself or your sweetie, here's what you need:
Red wool felt
Tan wool felt
Embroidery floss (white, black red, tan)
Stuffing
Pie Plush Template PDF
(plus scissors, needle, pins)

Sweetheart Pie

Cut out all of the pieces, using the template as a guide. Embroider the heart shape onto the top piece, and embroider the face onto one of the sides.

Pin the two sides onto the bottom crust. The crust should overlap on top of the lower edge of each side piece. Sew with a running stitch and tan floss.

Fold up the straight piece of crust, and pin with the short edge of the sides. Sew with running stitch.

Pin the sides together where they meet at the point. Sew with a running stitch and red floss.

Here's the trickiest bit. Pin the top piece in place as shown in the photo. Pin the extra crust piece in place at the same time (it goes between the other crust and the top piece).

Sew around these top edges with a running stitch. Leave an opening for stuffing.

Add stuffing. You can make this as full as you want. Mine isn't too stuffed...more soft and squishy. As an option, you could add some plastic pellets, beans or rice in a bag in the bottom to give it some weight.

Sew it closed, and you've got a slice of Sweetheart Pie! Whenever I make something like this, my baby sister sees it and asks what I'm using it for. That's her way of asking if she can have it to play with. This pie is already being loved by her and her dollies!

For another fun way to make a slice of pie, check out Aimee Ray's pumpkin pie. Hers is made a little different from mine, and has felt whipped cream!

  4. Ah, a sketch come to life!

    You know, I've followed your blog for some time, quietly most likely, but it wasn't until the recent 'month of craft photos' that I've followed you on Flickr. It is so cool to see this go from paper to three-dimensional. So cute.

  6. Cute! You could also change the top to tan as well to make a covered pie, or if you were really industrious you could try doing a lattice for the top (not that I know how but it would be cute!). And then there's variation of color/flavor...I'm all inspired!

    1. Rusty orange felt for pumpkin pie, then pin on name tags and set them out at the table for Thanksgiving seating. I think I might do that if I remember...

  7. That's so cute!
    The name you gave your pie reminded me of the film Waitress. It's a good watch if you haven't seen it, lots of pies.
