Today we’re “bringing home” this felt breakfast food post Allegra posted 2 years ago over at Sew Mama Sew. Her siblings still love to play with this darling, handmade felt breakfast food!
Hi! I’m Allegra, and I blog over at Skirt Fixation with my mom and sisters. I love embroidery, and combining that with another passion of mine; food, I have fun creating felt food! Felt food is a fun and educational toy that younger children love to touch. My little siblings’ personal favorite out of all of the items that I have made is the felt teabags. I stuff them with real aromatic herbs, and little kids adore smelling them over and over!
Today I have a tutorial for an easy felt breakfast food set including an egg, bacon, pancake and teabag!
White felt (I use scraps because the eggs aren’t very large)
Yellow felt (I use very small scraps)
White and Yellow embroidery floss.
Very small amount of stuffing.
Place egg yolk on one of the white ovals. Pin if needed. With two strands of yellow embroidery floss, begin to stitch the yolk onto one of the ovals. Bring the thread up through the bottom, and then put it through a small distance away. When the yolk is ¾ of the way sewn down, pause and stuff it with a small amount of stuffing.
Begin to stitch the two white ovals together. To do Blanket Stitch, bring your needle down through the two layers. Pull thread through until just a small loop remains. Put your needle through the loop and pull tight. There are quite a few good tutorials if you type in ‘blanket stitch’ in your preferred search engine.
Stuff the egg with a tiny amount of stuffing if desired. Finish stitching the egg together. Repeat to make as many cute little eggs as needed!
Dark red felt (If you have good-sized scraps, you can use them)
Pink felt (you can use very small scraps)
Pink embroidery floss.
Pin bacon pattern piece pattern to red felt. Cut out one piece. Out of the pink felt, cut two strips the approximate length of the bacon. These can be rather raggedy as they represent the bacon fat!
Using a regular up-and-down stitch, sew the pink pieces of felt onto the red piece, positioning them so that there is a small space between them. Note: the red felt that I used is wool felt, and so thick that I only poked the needle partway into it, so that the pink stitching doesn’t show on the back.
Repeat these steps to make as much bacon as desired!
You will need:
1 sheet of pancake-brown felt
Dark brown felt (You can use large scraps)
Yellow felt (You can use small scraps)
Dark brown, medium brown, and yellow embroidery floss.
Small amount of stuffing.
Stuff lightly with stuffing and finish stitching up.
Note: These smell really good!
Scraps of white felt
White and colored embroidery thread
Aromatic dried herbs
On the other end of the ribbon, fold the tag piece in half and sandwich the ribbon inside of the folded tag piece. Stitch around the tag with colored embroidery floss to close it. I also embroidered a small leaf on the tag for fun.
