No-sew Felt (and yarn) Food

 no-sew felt pizza

My kids loved playing with this felt pizza I threw together during a rainy day last week. The fuzziness of the photo is a combination of my always-shaky hands and the dull weather. I cut out circles for the crust and sauce and a variety of shapes for toppings. I doubt it will last as long as our always-popular pumpkin pie, but it was an easy way to brighten an otherwise gloomy day. In fact, it was so popular that I added some eggs:

I considered sewing or gluing the egg yolks to the egg whites, but decided not to. They stay together pretty well anyway, and this way the kids have the option of separating them out for “baking” purposes.

yarn spaghetti

Then I cut up some yarn to make spaghetti, which is being fried because bears took up residence in the pan.

Incidentally, those pans are proper kitchen ones. I was looking into buying some nice (non-plastic) play pots and pans, but Mike pointed out that they cost more than the real thing. The kitchen was a $15 find at a yard sale a couple years ago.

As for Johnny’s sticker, let’s just say he won’t be going to JoAnn Fabrics again any time soon…

  1. My girls love their felt food – I never thought of making it myself but now I know what to do when they lose or destroy some of their pieces! Thank you!

  2. This is such a great idea. How do you keep your scissors sharp after cutting the felt? I always have a hard time cutting it.

  3. What an awesome idea – even I can manage it. I think Anna might get some felt pizza after I come back :)

  4. IKEA has a great set of (real) small saucepans for $10 – three pans with lids, if I remember correctly. Could work well for the kids’ kitchen if you want a dedicated set for them.

  5. I love that pizza, and how simple it is to just cut some shapes out of felt. The no-sewing part is the best! M has been sick this week and whining about being bored. I think I’ll whip up something similar for him tomorrow – he’ll love it!
    I’m really curious about what happened at the fabric store too! :) Something definitely worth blogging about, I think. ;)

    What a great pizza! And I do hope the bears are OK!

    I love it how they can separate the yolks and whites for ‘baking.’

    Whenever I open my kitchen drawer to extract a saucepan, it’s a 50-50 chance of finding some balls in there that Michael ‘cooked’ recently.

  7. Great idea on using real pots, and the simple felt shapes are very cute! I have to admit my son plays as much with the simple circles I cut out felt for “pancakes” and “bagels” as he does with the fancy sewn felt food I’ve made. I like the idea of keeping the yolks/whites separate, since he doesn’t like the yolks and always gives them to my husband anyway!
