Play Felt Food

We have a really cute play kitchen for the girls. I hate the plastic food. The wood food scares me of what type of damage could be inflected when thrown by a two year. So I started looking into what could be used instead. The answer is the cutest thing on earth... felt food. So far I've hand stitched a sandwich (two pieces of bread, a leaf of lettuce, swiss cheese, slice of tomato, and a slice of bologna, a cup cake that looks "special" (it was my first try at making a pattern ever), and a fried egg. Here's some pics not the best quality because I used my iphone, but it should give you an idea.

A sandwich you can really sink your teeth into.

The "special" cup cake. I'm gonna try again.

Now for comparison here's a yucky plastic fried egg

Very cute! How much work is it? Is it easy? Someone posted about these things in here a while back(or maybe it was you). I love it!

Sooo cute! And I love how you could make a sandwhich, and it'll stay together. The cheese, lettuce, tomato, & hamburger always slide out of our plastic ones.

Love it. Now I have to go find some patterns too. I have a BIG bag of felt that I need to find a use for.

Found this site that has a ton of links for patterns for felt food. I am going to pick some and make some food.

I did post about it a while back but the post got auto pruned. These are really easy. Before this I've never sewn anything ever. If you start make the sandwich and make the bologna, cheese, lettuce, and then the bread. You can get the pattern here http://snazzlecraft.blogspot.com/2009/0 ... ttern.html

One tip for the bread use a few layers of batting to stuff it with. That way the slices will have a nice shape to them. I did know about batting and my bread slices are a bit lumpy :oops:

Thanks. I also just found a pattern to have crackable eggs, with the "fried egg" inside here http://weefolkart.com/?q=node/282 Which is another thing the plastic stuff doesn't do.

Scases there tons of patterns out there. Etsy has a ton on there that you buy for 5 to 15 bucks that are insanely crazy. Cereal boxes with logos, Pizza with the take out box, and also sorts of stuff.
