Handmade Felt Food

One of my projects this month has been to clean out and organize my sewing room.  In doing so, I discovered quite a few unfinished projects.  So, next on the list is to finish these projects.  Last week I finally wrapped one up!  

Two years ago I purchased a pattern and supplies to make felt play food for my daughters.  We were anticipating a move, which would mean room for a kitchen set and I wanted them to have food to play with.  I pinned the fabric to the pattern pieces and then stuck them in a box for two years.  I have thought about it from time to time, and always kept putting it off. 

Making felt food was really fun!  It's a bit tedious, as the pieces are somewhat small, but it was totally worth it for me, and the girls love it!  They saw the pattern cover, and have now commissioned me to make cupcakes and a cake--that will have to wait until I can finish some of the other unfinished projects I discovered in my sewing room...

Here are some pictures of the felt food.

The eggs and carton are my favorite.

Snow White came to model the grocery bag.

I used this pattern.  Look for pattern sales at Joann's, or use a 50% off coupon.

Strawberries, carrots, apples, squash, tomatoes,  an orange,eggplant, and a pumpkin

Have you finished any projects lately?  Or, do you still have some sitting in your closet?  There is no better time than the present!

  1. Oh my goodness! How cute! I love the eggs and the carton! So fun!! What a great mommy you are! :)

  2. These look so great!! I'm impressed. No wonder they love them!

  3. These are the cutest toys!! I think the eggs are my favorite too. I'm with the girls that they need a cake and cupcakes next! If we ever have any little girls I will pay you to make these for them :)

  4. Very fun! I bet they were kinda time consuming to make, but oh so worth it!

  5. Positively adorable! The felt food and the model. ;-) I'm NOT letting my little one see this or I'll never hear the end of it! :-) Thanks for sharing.

  6. Her dimples say it all! She is one happy girl with the finished project. Wonderful idea, Lauren.

  7. Love them all, and of course love the seamstress and her daughters! You do nice work! Those felt foods will provide hours of fun for the girls...

  8. Lauren, these are awesome! I wonder if these are too "girly" for Miles? We got him a little play grill for Christmas, and he has loved playing with the food, but a grill is sort of manly. :) Also, have any idea how much this cost to make??

  9. That's an awesome project! Ava and Sam loving playing with their kitchen and the plastic food, but the felt food looks more inviting.


I would love to get your feedback on any post! Comments make my day, and I will do my best to get back with you as soon as I can. Thanks!
