5 original felt play food tutorials

The ABC Crafts Series...F is for Felt Play Food


Welcome to another special edition of the ABC Crafts Series, this week dedicated to felt play food!

If you read the previous post in this series, entirely dedicated to felt projects (find it here), you already know that felt is one of my favorite crafting materials. Still, while I make a lot of things out of felt, ever since my daughter was old enough to play with her toy kitchen, I've been devoted to make all sorts of play food and, naturally, most if it is made with felt.

So instead of moving on, I decided to add another edition just for felt play food projects. 
5 original felt play food tutorials

When it comes to felt and felt play food, one simple click on Pinterest will show you zillions of different alternatives -maybe "zillions" is an exaggeration, but there's a lot of inspiration out there. However, just inspiration is not enough, especially for those of us (OK, all of us) who have limited time to dedicate to crafting projects.

We need something cute, that our kids want to play with, that's as close to real food as it can get, but it needs to come with a pattern and clear instructions. Because we just don't have time to try to figure out how to make that lovely felt cake of which someone just posted a picture. 


So...Check out what I picked for you this week:

(the detailed tutorial is just for the fries, but there are enough pictures and tips that allow you to easily replicate the burger)



I hope you enjoyed this little collection of felt play food tutorials. Next week you'll need to indulge me again and let me have another round up dedicated to felt: 5 felt toy ideas! And in the meantime, check the DIY play food page, where you can find my own play food tutorials!
 
In case you missed previous posts, the ABC Crafts series will be covering one (or more) crafts for each letter of the alphabet during 2016. Each roundup features 5 links, grouped around the major theme. All links posted will be DIY tutorials with clear instructions and/or free patterns, so that everyone can easily replicate them.

I've created a specific page for the series, which will include links to the crafts already covered, and a list of upcoming topics. You can find the page here. If you have suggestions for any of the topics, feel free to leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and I will try to include your ideas as much as possible (with proper credit)!

    1. Thank you Mary, though I would probably not recommend these for toddlers...too similar to real food for comfort...but my youngest is five, so I have lots of fun making felt food!

    1. Most of these are pretty easy to make, but if you don't want to, Ikea carries a nice selection of felt/fabric food. At least in Portugal is does...
