Felt Play Food

 

play-felt-food theidearoom.net

I realize all of my latest posts have been sugary treats! This cooler weather makes me want to bake. Even this post is food related, but at least these are calorie free.

Shhh! Don’t tell my daughter, but here is a sneak peek at what my girls are getting for Christmas this year. I have seen felt food all over the internet and as soon as I began to see them, I knew I had to make some for the girls.

To make this stackable ham sandwich, I used this tutorial here. Then after I got the hang of it, I kind of winged it and came up with some of my own designs for the lettuce, pickles and tomatoes. They really are very easy and require minimal sewing skills. If you don’t have a machine, you can hand stitch them as well.

I found a tutorial for the fried egg here and just made the bacon without any pattern. I also stumbled upon this site with a lot of different ideas for making felt food.

The strawberry pattern I used can be found here and the fruit slices were made using the patterns here. Then, after making the fruit slices, I used the same process and mad a slice of watermelon by cutting my felt in the same shape, but just larger.

And since I know some of you are going to ask, I got this fun wooden food play set from Amazon.com.

I am so excited for the girls to see them on Christmas morning! If you know of any other free felt food patterns, I would love to know where to find some more. But beware…making felt food is very addicting.

    I LOVE them they are so cute my favorite is the watermelon it looks so real. They are all very well done I might have to give this a try. My 3 year old loves the pretend food and out in the market place they can coast a fortune.

    I made several of the same things you've made for my niece last Christmas. Another that I love is the donut tutorial at Skip to My Lou. Not a food we eat much of, but so cute when done in felt.

    I've come across a ton of felt food patterns on blogs, but before I really got into checking out blog tutorials I just searched through things on Etsy and I found an endless supply of felt food ideas there too. I looked so long on there one day at so many felt food things that I literally haven't seen a new idea for felt food in a long time. Ha. Far too much time on Etsy that day. Anyway, since you already know the basic idea for howw to sew it, I suggest just poking around on Etsy for a while. You will find more than you could make (or use) in a lifetime. :)

    Love your site! I pinned your felt food to my felt craft themed “felt so good” board. I’d love to follow you if you are on Pinterest.
