I recently finished a craft project that was a little different, but a lot of fun. I made felt food for a friend's daughter who just turned 2. Felt food has become really popular in the realm of "unique" toys for kids. The idea of having play food made out of felt rather than hard plastic is genius. I think it's much more realistic, inviting, and creative.
Here's how my felt food turned out:
Top to bottom: ruffle chips with bag, chocolate chip cookies, ear of corn, banana, orange slices, fried egg, strawberries, carrots, bread slices, crackers, tomato, lettuce, lunch meat, slice of cheese. I also made bacon strips, but they didn't make it into the picture.
Thankfully, I was able to find wonderful tutorials on how to make most of the food items.
I used this tutorial to make the strawberries.
This for the fried egg and orange slices.
This for the sandwich and chips.
This for the banana and corn.
This for the crackers.
This for the carrots.
I didn't use a tutorial or pattern for the cookies or bacon strips.
