Tuesday is known around here as “Taco Tuesday” so my Tuesday SWAP at camp had to be a taco.
To create this swap, I cut little pieces of felt and sewed them together to create tacos. While I opted to use a sewing machine, they could be done by hand sewing each SWAP.
Here, let me show you how I made these in 5 easy steps…
Tan felt (for the taco shell)
Brown felt (for the hamburger meat)
Green felt (for the lettuce)
Red felt (for the tomatoes)
Sewing Needle (or sewing machine)

Step 1: Download and print the TACO Pattern pieces onto regular paper.
Step 2: Cut out each piece of felt. The Pinking Shears were used to cut the lettuce. This creates a wavy edge. The tomatoes are little red strips of felt. Only the tips show, but the larger pieces are easier to sew.
Step 3: Arrange the piece of felt. And fold the shell in half.
Step 4: Sew the taco closed.
Step 5: Add a safety pin along with your SWAP tag. Don’t forget to include your troop number.
