Felt Food for Christmas



I decided that this year would be a handmade Christmas for us.  Heather's Handmade Holiday.  Huh, I love alliteration!  Anyway, I'm working on making a play kitchen for my son and I wanted to make a bunch of felt food.  This is my first finished food.  Ha, there it is again.  

I'm not sure what to do about sauce for the ravioli.  I guess I'll have to look around some more at felt food posts.  But, I was pretty happy with the ravioli themselves.  I just cut the felt into rectangles and folded some quilt batting inside and stitched them together.  Then, I cut the edges with pinking shears.  Really fast, really easy.  My kind of project!  

That's all I've got tonight, but keep checking back for more of Heather's Handmade Holiday.  I think I just have to do it a few more times and I'll get it out of my system :) 

Also, a first for us, I'm posting this to a diy "party" at The Shabby Chic Cottage.  Follow the link below for more information!

A great idea to create sauce for the ravioli (or any pasta), is cut a "blob" shape out of red felt and affix mushroom shaped felt on that. Or even a smaller white felt "blob" atop the red blob for a mozzarella cheese look.

This is so cute. How fun to make up a kitchen full of play food!

For the sauce, you could cut out a few random amoeba blob shapes from (orange-ish red?) felt and sew them together to make something flat to lay over the pasta. This is probably as clear as mud but I can picture it. I'm sure you'll come up with something cute. :)

I'll have to admit, when I first saw the picture I was like "Food!". You'll have to excuse me, I haven't eaten breakfast yet. Very cute and so much fun!
