Felt Food ~ Fun Project for Kids

We joined the felt food frenzy!

The kids and I made this “breakfast ” as a gift for a little pre-school  cousin~

We all cut out and sewed the food.  The girls used basic blanket stitch to close the edges and stem stitch for the embellishments.

Felt is a fantastic sewing medium!

    • Young beginners can quickly sew pieces together.
    • It stays in place and doesn’t shift when sewing.
    • It is forgiving – mistakes are often ‘hidden’ or undone without giving any evidence.
    • Colours are bright and clear.
    • It is really cheap.
    • A little goes a long way!
    • Little scraps can be used for many things.
    • It endures despite quite frequent playing.

There are some excellent websites for is more ideas, patterns and inspiration:

We’re off to make some more gifts!

Blessings,
