Homemade play food - Felt Sandwich

After making my felt biscuits a few weeks ago I've been thinking about all the other possibilities for felt food. Something that I thought looked fairly simple was a felt sandwich. I like the fact that you can keep adding to it, and there are so many different ways that you can make it up. We have some plastic food bits in our play kitchen, but when you put them together they just slide about and fall apart. Felt lends itself much better to play food because the pieces will stick together.

I kept it all very basic. The slices of bread are just two squares of felt, sewn around the edges with a small amount of stuffing added in. The fillings are mainly just single pieces of felt, some with details sewn on.

I made two slices of ham, two slices of cheese, two pieces of cucumber, two slices of tomato and a piece of lettuce. They are all pretty much life size.

I didn't use a pattern, I just cut them freehand. There is a lot of inspiration for felt food all over the web, I particularly like the detailed tutorial for making a felt lunch bag at Skip To My Lou.

  1. This is so cute! What a great idea. I may just have to give it a go.

  2. Such a good idea. I might have to make some for my son, play food is always a winner. :)
