Back when I was on bed rest I posted that I’d be spending some of my time sewing felt play food for Eli. Here is what I managed to accomplish in that time. Since being released I haven’t made any more but I hope to as time goes on as this is a lot of fun, for both of us. There is already a wealth of tutorials already available on the web so this is just more of a “show and tell” post. Scroll down to the bottom for links to tutorials if you also want to get started making felt food but need additional guidance or inspiration.
First up is the whole grain bow tie pasta. Super simple to make! The pans and utensils were found uber cheap at Ikea. I think the cooking utensils (maybe 6 or so?) were $5, and the pots and pans set, including pot, strainer, lid, frying pan and sauce pan (perhaps something more but we aren’t living at home now so I can’t check) was $10.
A hamburger to put the tomatoes on. Have you ever seen this Pink Panther scene where Steve Martin plays a Frenchman trying to learn to pronounce the word “hamburger” like an American? Eli cracks me up because he has a unique way of pronouncing “hamburger” as well and always reminds me of this scene. He asks for hamburgers often, but what he really wants is a hamburger bun slathered in ketchup, and perhaps a little mustard. He does use the felt version of the hamburger patty on the bun though.
Would you like one egg…
That’s all I got thus far. I’ll share more if/when it gets made. 🙂
Here’s where I’m linking up:
