Felt Food Mania
Felt cookies from this website. No patterns were used, it's really simple. Just two cream colored felt pieces layered together with a fun frosting, sprinkled. The chocolate chip cookies were inspired by these blueberry muffins. I loved her idea that the blueberries are not always on top, and since chocolate chips usually look the same in the cookies, I duplicated it. After sewing the random curly-q's to the wrong sides, I sewed the right sides together, leaving a space to flip them through. Now, I also think that they look better a bit thicker, so I used scrap batting from quilting projects to stuff them before hand sewing the cookies closed. K says her little girl is in love with the cookies right now.
I love these tomatoes. I'll show you the website and pattern I found them on, but when you see it, you'll kick yourself for not seeing how simple they are! It's nothing more than a large circle gathered and stuffed. Cut out a leafy top, sew it on and you're done! And the tomato slices were just as easy, you'll see!
These are some of my favorite pieces, and until K's little girl got the cookies, she too was in love with the first slice of bread I made for her. Rather than create 3 different links, I'm just going to make one, back to the Felt Food Cook-Along, because that's where all but the lunch meat came from. The lunch meat is little more than a piece of pink felt (or 2 if you want more thickness or stability), cut with pinking shears and machine stitched around the edge for a bit of detail. The rest of the food in the picture is the Sliced Bread, the Chicken Pieces/Chicken Nuggets in the Felt Fajitas, and The Amazing Changing Felt Pizza Crust/Tortilla.
