Adelaide received a play kitchen for Christmas this year, so, of course, I needed to make some felt food! I made a few things, but the farfalle turned out the best, I think.
Just cut a few rectangles, trim the short edges with pinking shears, and scrunch and hand-sew the centers. The little colander is something I picked up from World Market for $2 because I was there buying candy for our stockings and thought the pop of blue would be just so darn cute.
And, because our girl loves her cookies, I made some chocolate chip cookies. And yes, she did try to stick one in her mouth at first, before we had sufficiently gone over the "this is PRETEND food" concept. I didn't stuff them at all, so they're just flat, which I think works.
I also made some fried eggs, but for some reason I don't have any photos of those. Maybe someday.
I consider the farfalle, the cookies, and the eggs my victories. Easy, but also pretty good looking. On the other hand: I also tried a doughnut. There were going to be multiple doughnuts, but I wasn't happy with the effort to results ratio on the first one, so I quit.
The felt food and the play kitchen are getting a lot of use so far (and even some good, lengthy independent play! pinch me!), so yay!
