Johnny Appleseed is a American historical folk hero that helped spread orchards all across america! Start your Autumn Circle Time off right with this adorable little felt toy. Perfect for story telling, singing nursery rhymes, and other apple and JAS themed activities!
With this listing I've provided a PDF pattern for creating your own small felt Johnny Appleseed toy. Since it is the perfect Waldorf Circle Time figure I am including a classic plant life cycle rhyme/mantra as well as a fact sheet about Johnny Appleseed created specifically for young children!
There are two PDF's included here. One pattern and instructions, and one with rhyme and fact sheet.
To create the Johnny Appleseed figure you will need scrap felt in various colors as well as some embroidery thread and needle. You will also need a basic understanding of embroidery stitches such as french knot, straight stitch, and blanket stitch.
Finished figure measure approximately 2"x 5.5"
I recommend using all natural wool felt or post consumer ecofelt.
I hope you love your little John Chapman as much as we love ours!
