Easy Felt Food

Several days ago, I dropped a link to these cute templates from the current issue of Family Fun magazine. I've made felt food for the kids before, but was looking to do a quick, easy set this time around, because I'm up to my neck in unfinished projects right now. These fit the bill. I started them this afternoon, and finished them tonight.

These were constructed from felted sweaters. (Well, except for the yellow corn. You don't find a lot of bright yellow sweaters...) There were several pieces, like the garlic and onion that I didn't make, because I didn't have the right color felt. I'll be keeping an eye out at at the thrift store for a beige or white sweater.
Even if you've never sewn before, this would be an easy, easy project.
I'm putting this little set away for Christmas.


  1. I can't believe you did those so quickly. That gives me hope that I can do it. I'm going to try it. Thanks for the link.

  2. This is my kind of felt food. The other stuff I see online, though adorable, would not get finished until my kids graduated high school. I'm totally going to try this! Thanks!
