Bon Appetite!


My newest discovery: Felt Food!

Jack likes to "cook" with Elyette so for his birthday I went with that and tried to find things to assist in this pretend play. Thanks to Ikea I got some seriously cute pots, pans, and dishes, but I needed some food. 

I was really getting frustrated with all the plastic junk I was seeing (for way more $ than I thought it was worth) then I realized I had all these felt sheets I'd been stocking up on when on sale (5 for $1) with in the intention of making felt board stories (or something like that). Well, since that idea wasn't materializing any time soon I decided to use it to make play food. It was cheap (all cost me about $4), easy (no patterns necessary), fun, and FAST! I highly recommend trying it out. Christmas gift idea?

How funny...I've been working on the same thing for Abby. I just made a bunch of "sugar cookies" with frosting. I have a basket I am filling with food for her Christmas present! I love the sandwich and pizza you made! Very creative!

So um. How much would you charge to recreate these with a little variation? I want you to make them for me! Let me know! :)

I was just talking to Laura about this! I want to make some...or have you make me some :) I'll put an order in too. Sounds like you could make money on stuff like this! Brynn (and McKenzie) could use some more pretend food also. Cute stuff!
