Homemade by Jill used a basket weave approach for making felt corn in this post, but I preferred the more three-dimensional style of corn created here at Just Stuff. I decided to combine the two ideas to create a tutorial all of my own!
1 sheet each of bright yellow, light yellow (or white) and dark green felt
(Note: Wool felt is much softer and nicer than acrylic felt, and is what I used for this project. I purchase mine from BumbleBee Designs, here in Australia.)
Dark Green and Yellow Thread
Polyfill or other Toy Stuffing Material
Cutting implements - I used scissors, rotary cutter, ruler and a cutting mat (you could use a knife or scissors instead of a rotary cutter)
Step 1: Cut three oval shapes from one of the yellow sheets of felt. Also cut three oval shapes from the dark green felt. My sheets were 30cm x 25cm (12" x 10"). I cut them in half on the long side, so I had a 15cm x 25cm (6" x 10") piece. I then cut that in quarters, so I had four rectangles of 15cm x 8cm (6" x 2.5"). I rounded off the corners to create by oval shape like this:
Step 6: Trim the ends of the light yellow (or white) strips if they hang over the edges of the bright yellow piece.
Step 14: Insert yellow corn piece into the green husk. Admire your felt creations and/or give them to a small child.
