The Peach is learning pretend play.
First, it started so sweetly with her pretend drinking out of one of the halves of her Matroyska doll. And soon it led to her pretending to eat random scraps of paper and saying “yummy”.Â That was all I needed to hot-foot it over to Michael’s to buy 20 sheets of felt because finally I had a reason to makeÂ FELT FOODÂ for my little one!
Perhaps it was my complete lack of sleep combined with a more than a grueling week at the office, but I just stared at that felt dumb-founded but determined to turn into into some healthy felt vittles for Georgia.Â So, I spent a good afternoon poking around the Internet cupboards and came back with a feast of felted goodness that I’d love to share with you all.
The Peach does love ravioli something fierce and this easy pattern makes it easy for anyone to whip up a batch of Italian goodness.
Flapjacks anyone? Yes, please thanks for embroidery goddessÂ Turkey Feathers’s great tutorial. Little gnome not included.
Or would you prefer bacon and eggs? Etsy seller Little Crickets has a great pattern to take care of that craving.Â Smiling eggs included.
Winner winner chicken dinner with this grand felt chicken pattern from July Hobby. And yes, the chicken parts are connected with velcro, so you little one can go all Henry the Eighth on that bird.
I love this felt sandwich–Easy on the mayo, please! Thanks, Mojo & Co for the great pattern! That tomato is a piece of art!
Let’s play Starbucks, baby!Â Get your kiddo hooked on double decaf no foam felt latte early with this goodie pattern from Fairy Fox.
This dim sumÂ feltÂ food pattern set includes directions on how to make the fun little baskets. Now you just need to get a mini cart for your kid to roll around your dining room offering you sui mai.
The only thing missing from this greatÂ country fairÂ felt food is the carnie manning the tilt-a-whirl!
Both from Ume Crafts.
Those Japanese craft books are worth their weight in gold for all the goodies they contain–and this one dedicated to felted veggies is just insane.
Why not get your little one in on grocery shopping early with this great set from Etsy seller, Buggabugs?
But of course, this is just the tippy tip tip of felt food goodies. To learn more of the finer points, why don’t you check out what Craftster, the mecca for all things crafty. That is where I’m going to spend my afternoon today. And hopefully, I’ll be able to share some delicious felted goodness with you next week!

i make felt Pop Tarts and donuts for my kiddos. pretty easy! not sure if i have the time (or patience!!) to make some of these featured items, but holy moly those are fantastic!!
That dim sum set is unbelievable. But my favorite? The felt–i.e., “pretend”–tote bag. How is it that a perfectly functional REAL tote bag is inherently less fun than a perfectly functional felt bag?
YAY Dottie I love love LOVE this!!
Kodie, I couldn’t make a felt piece of toast, lemme tell ya. But I do love these soooo much. I also like little plastic food.
Awesome artist Heidi from My Paper Crane is pretty phenom with little softy foodsâ€”hers are more like little characters with cute eyes (so not as “realistic”) but they’re also awesome!
Check her out here:
making donuts are my favorite but……i NEED to make that carnival food. the corn dog is genius!
i just went to check out ume crafts and if you sign up for her mailing list you get a free pattern emailed to you to make macaroons!
That is awesome about a free pattern from Ume crafts! I have a feeling that this stuff is insanely addictive to make. If I start now, maybe I’ll have enough ready for Christmas when we get the Peach the a little kiddo kitchen.
Oh and don’t even get me started on amigurumi food.
Finally fun food that kids can play with, is easy to clean up and won’t hurt anyone when thrown.
i made about 3 dozens donuts for the kids to give all of the friends for last christmas!
What a great idea for holiday presents Heather. I’m totally going to try to make some and I’ll give everyone an update on how they go!
i want all of these!!
when i had truman i wondered whether we would ever play with the food stuff and you can not even imagine my joy when not only do we play with play food but we have all out tea parties!!
I’m looking for a Coke can or bottle felt pattern. Anyone seen any?
How do I buy the dim sum felt pieces???? I need them!!â™¡â™¡â™¡
