Felt Good

This is the last holiday post for a while, I promise. I just have to share the felt food I made for my nieces with you, though.

I also made bowtie pasta and milk cartons, but don’t have photos of those to share.  We put everything into a small metal shopping basket so the girls could go “grocery shopping.”

Christmas Florida 6I had so much fun sewing food for them! I used plain craft store felt (at $0.25 a sheet) and embroidery floss. I got my inspiration from Pinterest (most came from here). Everything was hand sewn using a blanket stitch and I started in late October. I sewed on most of my lunch breaks and finished the last bit of food on the plane to Indiana.

The girls loved their food and have (according to our sisters) been playing with it nonstop. I keep seeing new ideas on Pinterst though, so I doubt this will be the last of my felt toy adventures.

    I am so jealous of these (for my nieces not me, ok me too)! My mom bought them a play kitchen and I joined in on the gift by buying them food for it. I got wood Melissa and Doug accessories but these are so much cooler and personal.
