1. Download the Pineapple Pattern designed by Bee Sew Inspired. You can choose either the PDF Pattern to hand cut your shapes, or the SVG Cut File and follow the directions to have your Cricut Maker cut the felt shapes. Make sure to use your rotary blade and set the fabric to felt.


2. Start by preparing the pineapple leaves. Cut out 6 to 8 leaves using the green felt. You want to cut some of them in half length wise, cut another few of them 3/4 of the way and others will be kept full length. For my pineapple I cut a total of 8 leaves, kept 2 full length, cut 2 in half and the others at different lengths and then arranged them from shortest to longest.



3. Once arranged from shortest to longest, overlap slightly each leaf using pins or clips to keep them in place and stitch along the bottom edge to keep all these leaves together.










4. Starting with the side with the longest leaves, roll the set of leaves to create the pineapple top. Hand stitch to secure the roll in place making sure to go all the way through the full diameter and every layer. Set the pineapple top aside while you get your other pieces ready.
