(read as...Mama is SUPER excited for Samantha to open this one)
I'm rather late to the felt food craze, but I've completely jumped on the bandwagon now. In fact, once I started seeing all the fun things you could make, I came up with a few of my own patterns. And because it's Christmas....and Christmas is ALL about GIVING....I'm giving them to you too!
Not everything pictured is my own pattern, but I have listed where to find the ones I did not design, so you can make those too! Isn't this fun!?!?!?! I've been told more than once that I'm probably more excited than Sam will be to get these. (this is most likely true...but you have not seen her do the "IT's CHRISTMAS TIME!! IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME" Freak Out everytime she sees our tree or lights...so I a holding out hope her excitement for her new food will be the same)
Here are the Pattern Pieces. This is an 8.5x11 sheet, so you can save this image to your computer and print it out accordingly. All the sewing was done by hand. Just a needle and embroidery thread!
Pancakes: Cut 2 circles for each pancake. stuff ever so slightly, and sew closed. For the top pancake with syrup on it: Sew Slab of butter on syrup, sew syrup on top of one pancake circle, THEN sew the 2 pancake circles together.
Bacon: Cut 2 strips for each piece of bacon. The "fat" is just thin strips of pink felt sewn to the first strip of bacon. Once the fat is sewn on, sew the 2 strips together without stuffing.
Eggs: I have drawn out one shape for an egg. Feel free to use this twice, or make your own shape! you'll cut 2 for each egg white and 1 yellow yolk. Start sewing the yolk to one piece of egg white and stuff it before you close the edge up. Then sew the two egg whites together without stuffing.
Apple Slices: Cut out the core piece and use it as a pattern to trace the core on to the "apple fruit" with pencil. Embroider the seed in the center of the core. Stitch along the pencil line of the core with like-colored thread. Cut out the apple peel. Stitch the fruit edge to the Peel.....stuff before closing. If you make 6, you should have a Complete Apple.
Orange Slices: Cut out Orange fruit circle and embroider "sections" but stitching 3 lines that bi-sect in the center. Attach Orange fruit to center of orange rind by stitching around the circle of the "fruit". Fold this combined circle in half and sew Orange Peel to the edges...stuffing it before closing. Making 6 of these will give you a complete orange.
