Time for the final project in my felt fruit series: sewing some kiwi fruit halves!

I hope you guys have enjoyed this series - do let me know if you make any felt fruit to decorate your homes! The individual felt projects would look cute sitting on a bookshelf, and if you made all the fruit they'd look fantastic displayed together in a bowl.

Follow the links to find the tutorials for the earlier projects: apples and pear, orange and apple slices, strawberries and watermelon slices.

Please note that the finished felt fruit is intended for decorative use only - it is not a toy and should be kept well out of reach of young children.

  1. Jag gillar dina Kiwi! Så levande.

  2. Why can't we use this as a toy? I would like to make food to go with my daughter's play kitchen, but want to know if there is a risk associated with these!

  3. Hi Emily - the kiwi fruit and other felt fruit tutorials I've shared on my blog were designed with purely decorative use in mind, NOT for use as toys, so they haven't had any safety testing and I haven't considered things like whether they might be choking hazards, etc. If you're looking to make items for a play kitchen I'd definitely recommend looking for felt food patterns that have specifically been designed for making play food :)
