I didn't really use patterns but I will share the websites I got inspiration from! First up was a pancake, inspired by Homemade by Jill. I figured this would be such an easy start since its just a circle. Don't tell anyone, but I've been doing some illegal stitches... whip-stitching really tightly because its easy and I don't have the stamina for more finished, complicated stitches... Anyway, I stuffed this with one layer of fleece I had leftover from way back when I made Owen newborn diapers so I put that in. It was so easy! He was very excited.. "pancake?" until he realized it was fake, lol. But I showed him how to pretend eat it and he did a little fake chewing and "num numming" and was super adorable...
free pattern and it took no time at all. If you don't have stuffing, find something around the house--fabric scraps, cotton balls, etc. I pillaged an old couch pillow since my husband always complains we have too many of them. Oh, I am also digging this pattern, I love the leaves on it
this tutorial and then made my own, except I didn't have cream felt and I didn't want to line the peel because, A) waste of felt (for me, since I never get out shopping and never spend money) b) too much work! Well, my banana turned out mediocre... its overstuffed and doesn't really close properly, but you can totally tell what it is and I think its super cute!
Here are some sites that have free tutorials or pictures you can get ideas from... Seems like once you get the basic ideas down then you can basically make anything--Apples, oranges, tomatoes and such all seem like they are very easy if you aren't making them to open up and have slices in them... Anyway, here are the links
The Petite Cafe
Helping Little Hands
The Olsen Family Journal
If you have done any felt food projects post a link and let me know--I would love to see them and maybe show them off in a future post!
