Chocolate Covered Strawberries - Felt Play Food

I made a few of these strawberries and I love my take on the seeds. They look the most realistic to me! Then I was given an idea from my sister of making a chocolate coating, and I went from there. For pretend play you can use just the strawberries or you can "dip" them in the chocolate and have chocolate covered strawberries!
Made entirely with Eco-Fi recycled felt from post-consumer plastic bottles, is approx. 1 1/2", and is hand stitched.

Crab Rangoon and Sweet & Sour Sauce -Felt Play Food

When I thought of making felt crab rangoon play food, I got straight to work! I filled them with fiberfill before I stitched them up. Probably my favorite item so far! I made a little cup for the sweet and sour sauce.
Crab rangoon is made with acrylic felt and is approx. 1 1/4" top to bottom. Sweet and sour sauce cup is made with Eco-Fi recycled felt from post-consumer plastic bottles and is approx 1" high.

Penna and Farfalle (bowtie) Felt Pasta

I love pasta! The idea of putting together a pretend meal, in a toy pot, is so charming! There are so many pretend meals that can be made with some basic pasta shapes.

I just love this felt penne pasta. It's about 1 1/2 inches in length and completely hand stitched. I angled the edges on either side, exactly like real penne. I use acrylic felt for this one because the color is perfect. It is called "Champagne".

Bow-tie pasta makes me think about summer picnics. I like to use the tri-color farfalle in my pasta to give it a gorgeous color. These are also about 1 1/2 inches long and hand stitched. Made with green and ivory Eco-Fi recycled felt and gold acrylic felt.
