Yummy! Felt Food :)


felt food, originally uploaded by omamom16.

My mom and I recently finished making a bunch of felt food for my niece and godson (and his brother). I cut the felt out months ago, but I'm scared to use the sewing machine without my mom (it breaks every time we use it), so I was waiting for her to come sew them. My mom did all of the machine sewing, and I did the cutting and hand sewing (sewing the chocolate chips onto the cookies). My mom loved sewing the eggs and said she could sew a hundred eggs :) We are thinking of opening an etsy shop, which is something we've been talking about for a year or so. I'm hoping that this nausea will pass soon, so that I can be more productive :)

  5. Love felt food! I have had felt but have not made the food yet. I plan to hand sew it all rather than fix up a sewing machine.

    There are several felt food sellers on Ebay but if you can manage to do sets that are reasonably priced you could do very well! I think it would be great if you have a good inventory so people can stock up, especially if you want to go for the pre-holiday season.

  6. I also have a set of felt food! I am hand sewing instead of using a machine since I don't own one but I'm really enjoying it. I have until Christmas to finish the set as a gift for my daughter. She already has some pieces and LOVES them.

    The possibilities of felt are endless!!! :)

  8. I wish I could sew. I'd make my own. So much greener than the ones I bought.

  9. Bow-Tie Pasta, what a great idea!! We have made felt food in the past, it's fun too :)

    And remember, the more you use that machine, the easier it gets!
