Wow! I have to try that. I'm heading over to Goodwill this afternoon.

Hurrah! I'm finished my pile of felt food. Fingers crossed that DD likes them We'll know in 2 weeks! It was lots of fun making it all, hmmm what shall I tackle next? Perhaps the housework

Wow, Pixiemammy, that pile of food looks AMAZING!

I *LOVE* your avocado especially! I've had a hard time finding the right colour of green for an avocado, but I think I lucked out today, so hopefully I'll have a pic soon!

Heads up, y'all, Joann's has 100% recycled fleece on sale for $3/yard, and it's 72" wide.

(It's made from recycled PET bottles, and it's not terrible to work with. It's not as bad as, say, the acrylic stuff in squares at Michael's, which is terrible, but it's nowhere near as nice as the 35% wool/65% rayon blend I found this afternoon.)

I just started working on felt food, in the last two days, I've made a pile of salad, a kale leaf, a cucumber slice, strawberries, an olive with pimento, a cookie, a cracker, and a pint jar full of strawberries. And tea! The tea is especially cute, if I do say so myself.

Here's the whole batch - and here is the tea. My cucumber came out really well, but I can't get a photo because the contrast is so subtle, and the colours are so light.

Coming up soon - sushi, peelable bananas and oranges, and a watermelon.

FtMPapa, the tea is sooooo cute, I might steal that idea and make some for Littlepixie's teapot if you don't mind The avocado was actually really straightforward in the end, although I put it off until almost last as I thought it would be very difficult! I did the brown ball for the seed first & then built the rest around it Looking forward to seeing your avocado!

DD loves all the food, Santa very kindly brought a wooden play market which I filled with the felt food and DD hasn't stopped playing with it since! I'm delighted, so a huge thank you to all of you for the inspirations and ideas

I know this thread is old but I thought people might be interested in:
This link
which is a translated version of a page with a kit for making the fruit from the Japanese site posted earlier. The kit pictures show the pieces of the fruit, you see.

and instructions for the blocks

American Felt and Craft, www.americanfeltandcraft.com, says they buy thier 100% wool felt only from "free range happy sheep." Thats where I buy mine and it's thicker than craft type felt but I use it to make my daughters felt food and I think it has turned out amazing!

Those look great!!! : I think my dd would actually try and eat that stuff. But kind of the point, right?

Felt Food

Hello Friends, and looking forward to meeting all of you! My name is Rosa, and I am so glad that I came across this web site to share my craft with others. Yes, I love felt food! Even though I've sewn all my life, I began making felt food 6 months ago for my girls. And since then have placed a shop on Etsy, creating some of our little feast for the little chefs all abroad! What a fun way to teach sewing skills to the young and old, not to mention watching your little ones imagination grow while playing. I would love to help you if you would like with some of my patterns, and be sure to stop by my shop.www.feltfoodfeast.etsy.com

?????
Was that really $$$5 a sheet???

I pay 50 cents a sheet for the recycled bottle suff and think it is pricey!

there certainly are a wide range of family incomes on here

nice to see

I would def like to be able to make some 100% wool....drool
and wooden toys for the kiddos...It would be nice to have them as heirlooms

Just made a bag and chips...my 3 year old son LOVES them.....
I have been walking on a cloud

they probabnly won't last long enough for my 9 mos old daughter to enjoy, but I will make her some when she wants them.
I can't wait to make some more!
I have eggs, bread, and cheese cut out and ready to sew!
