Having Fun with Felt Food

I spent a little time this week making a few felt food items for my niece. She loves her felt and canvas cardtable playhouse that I made for her this past summer and since we like to play "restaurant", I wanted to add to the food she has in the garden.
Since I'm a total novice at felt food, I kept the items pretty simple.



I made some basic sandwich items...bread, lettuce, tomato, cheese, and bacon for a BLT, of course. :-)

The bacon also works for breakfast along with a fried egg, sunny-side up.


I also made a simple taco shell. She'll have fun filling that with different things.


And we have to have something for dessert, so I made a cupcake with pink icing and a cherry.
It was actually a lot of fun thinking up different food items to make. I'm sure I'll make a few more, I think we need a least one more dessert. :-)

And I wanted to thank everyone so much for all of the nice comments on the "Progress on the New House". Its still moving along at a snail's pace, but the flooring is going down now. Poor hubby is doing much of the work by himself, so it will be a bit longer before any new pictures.

Oh the food is so sweet! I wanted to make some cute food for The Little Guy's kitchen, but before I knew it my aunt bought him some of the stuff from IKEA instead. It's pretty cute too, but nothing like homemade, right?

Can't wait to see more house pics!

I love the felt food you made!! You did a fantastic job on it! I esp love how your bread & cheese turned out! Did you follow a patten or just wing it? Ive been a big fan of felt food since I saw some on etsy a few years ago but my boys were too "old" & uninterested in it. But now that we have a little girl I will getting some when she gets a lil older. =)

And I know Im a lil late on this but congrats on the new house!!

Thanks everyone! They are a lot of fun to make.

Hi Jessica! No pattern, just sketched out the shape of the bread and cut it out to use as a template. The other things are basically free form...wavy strips for bacon, circle for tomato, wonky blob for an egg. LOL
You'll have fun making them for your little girl. :-)
