This little project comes as a result of seeing all the spoon people designs floating around the Internet. I wanted to make something similar, but smaller and more compact. When I saw these little ice cream spoons on consumercrafts.com, I knew I had my medium.
It’s the perfect kids craft for the winter months! When the kids are cooped up, this little spoon people village is a fun and entertaining activity.
- Rotary Cutting Tool or Scissors
- Felt (I bought this assorted pack)
- Wood Ice Cream Spoons (They are only $1.47!)
- Needle and Thread or Sewing Machine
The first thing you will need to do is pick two pieces of felt for your rollup. They can be the same color or different. Cut one piece by two thirds lengthwise with your rotary tool or scissors. The rotary tool comes with the blade safely tucked away (see below).
You should end up with one full piece of felt, one strip of felt that is around 3 inches tall and an optional piece of printed fabric that is around 6 inches tall. All fabrics should be the same length.
Now it is time to sew! You are going to sew little compartments for the spoons, connecting your strip of felt to your main piece of felt. I just lined up my spoon, leaving a little give on each side to measure.
Once the rollup is complete, you get to make the little spoon people. This is the fun part! Break out the markers and give each little spoon a personality. I also like to leave some blank spoons so the kids can make their own. At $1.47 a pack, we can make as many spoon people as they wish!
