Finally… it’s time to get the Christmas presents posted. The excuse of having to wait until the gifts have been opened is long gone…

This year, a friend of mine started talking about making felt food for her nephews and of course I got roped in. A few hours on Pinterest and Etsy and I was hooked – it was going to be a felt food feast for Christmas. I got the patterns and the felt and then… my partner in felt was on to new projects. Luckily my mom was in town early on and helped me get far enough into the project that I was too excited about cute little veggies to turn back. So hours of tracing, cutting, gluing and hand-stitching tiny pieces of felt were about to begin.

I did a lot of looking for various patterns, but settled on a couple from Sweet Emma Jean. They looked more complicated, but also much cuter and more realistic than most of the others, and I was too intrigued by a pizza cutter than actually spins so I had to give them a try. The food was much more intricate than I’d expected – onions and peppers – 3 pieces of felt for each little slice. The pizza cutter… I lost count, but I think it was about 17 pieces (and it really does spin!). The pizza itself… what’s 13 times 6? And then of course the tortillas and pasta were the easiest and maybe the most fun of all. But all together, it’s one fun feast of felt food! (and I’m sure there will be more to come…. can’t have dinner without dessert after all).

Some of the many, many pieces waiting to be glued and stitched together.

I loved the little bow tie pasta! And was so excited about the perfect vessel to package it in - a mini orange colander.
