I have been lusting after felt play food since I discovered them on Etsy a while back (can't remember exactly when!). I was fairly certain I could make my own felt food and I finally got around to it. I started two days ago and got all the items pictured done in that time. I didn't use any patterns at all, I just free handed everything based on pictures I saw on-line. I used regular sewing thread for the seams and sewed the pieces together using either a whip stitch or a blanket stitch.
If you go here and scroll down a little bit, on the left is a whole list of various tutorials for making felt play food.
It is definitely addicting! Up next are some chicken nuggets and french fries and then some cookies! If you're looking for a quick and easy project that is portable, these are it. There is definitely time to get a few pieces done before Christmas!
