Felt food, Tea Party Time

Felt food is all over the internet and they were some of the first tutorials I bookmarked (so glad we don't have to do it that way anymore!) Thank you Pinterest!!  Anyway, prior to last month I'd never made more than just a couple of things.  But with Peyton's birthday last month I decided to try some again!  She loves to hold tea parties so when I saw an adorable tray at the dollar store I went off in search of tutorials.  I used a variety of tutorials. 

Peanut Butter Cookies, Chocolate Chip, Lemon Bars and Frosted Hearts: Made
Cinnamon Roll: Smashed Peas and Carrots
Doughnuts: Skip to My Lou and Craftster

For the cinnamon rolls I made no changes and they turned out SO cute!  I hadn't use puffy paint in ages before making these!  For the lemon bars I tried two ways, one is four layers of felt put together, light brown, 2 yellow and white on top with no stuffing.  For the other one I did 3 layers; one of each color and stuffed it a bit.  I like the four layer one without stuffing the best.  

All of the cookies are basically like the ones Dana made except that I added a layer of quilt batting between top and bottom.  I liked it that way, they are a bit more fluffy! :)  Those little chocolate chips made me crazy with all the start and stop sewing!!!

For the doughnuts I combined two tutorials.  I used the pattern from Craftster (I liked the thicker doughnuts) but used the directions from Skip to my Lou.  I always want to do as little hand sewing as possible!! :)  Every time I see the kids playing with these I want a doughnut!!
Finally for the pie slices I made the pumpkin pie with Smashed Peas and Carrots tutorial and it was good but I was still searching so I tried the other and made a slice of blueberry pie and I liked it too.  Basically what I decided was that I liked the pie shape from SPAC and the assembly directions from Sew Mama Sew.  Also I liked the whipped cream from Sew Mama Sew's tutorial better. (they are switched on the pie pieces though) Nothing like being ultra picky! Though that is what I liked about crafting, you can do it however you want!  I really want to make some more food now.  I am thinking healthy food this time.  I want to try these for sure.  Felt Salad, Snap Peas, and broccoli and cauliflower.

Have you made any felt food and if so do you have some good felt food tutorial to share?  I'd love to get some more ideas! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh the cuteness of it all. I've never made felt food before, but I really want to soon. My niece would just love it to bits.

    1. Felt food really is pretty easy to make. I find the hardest part it just getting the felt and patterns out and doing it! :)


Your comments make my day, I love to hear what you have to say! :)
