Dimensional DIY Pineapple
In the Designer's Words: "Pineapple prints & motifs are all over the place and so trendy right now. So I thought I will show how to make a 3D pineapple out of felt. As many of you might not have a sewing machine, I will also show a no sew version of making it. Without much ado, let's get to the making."

Time to CompleteUnder an hour
Sewn byBoth Hand and Machine
- Yellow felt - 2 sheets
- Green Felt - 2 sheets
- Needle and thread
- Polyfill Stuffing
- Marble gems / beans/ rice /stones for weight (Optional)
- Sewing machine (Optional)
- Brown or black marker (optional)
- Hot glue gun
Trace the pattern on to the felt sheets.You will need 5 pieces to make one pineapple. I traced ten as I made two (one set for sewing version and another no sew version).
Take two pieces, right sides facing each other and sew one side as shown. In the same way, join the other three pieces together.
Now join the 3 piece part and 2 piece part together, sew completely on one side and while attaching the other side leave a small opening. Using that, turn the whole thing inside out.
Now stuff the base of the pineapple with stuffing. Decide which side you want to use it as base. fill it with little stuffing and then add some weight like marbles/stones/rice/beans to make to stand. Then fill the remaining with more stuffing. If you are using it as a pillow, you can avoid adding weights
Close the opening with a ladder stitch using needle and thread. Your pineapple base is done.
Now that the base is ready, let's move on to the making of pineapple crown. For this take a paper and draw a rough pattern. If you are confident, you can skip drawing the pattern and cut straightly through the felt. Pin the pattern with the felt and cut the piece for the crown. Don't throw away the cut pieces in between, you can use them it later steps.
