Food Obsession

December 27, 2007

I have been staying up until midnight lately focused on food. Felt food. Wish I could say I was putting my effort into real cuisine, but instead I am obsessed with hand sewing tasty little treats for the kids' new kitchen (the beautiful wooden food really hurts when an angry two year old throws it at you!). Here are the sets I made for my niece's Christmas present.

Breakfast...eggs, strawberries, and a waffle

Lunch...sushi, seaweed salad, carrot, peas, and a fortune cookie

Tea time...chocolate chip cookie and sugar cookie

I owe my inspiration to Ericka and these amazing sites: Felt Cuisine , Rivulette, Retro Rags and Craftster. If only cooking was this much fun!

TOO CUTE!!! Maybe I can find time to make some of those myself!

Those are fabulous! Truly, truly, fabulous! I'm ready to chuck the stupid plastic food we have right now and stitch some meals of my own! Well done!

Okay, that is utterly, completely adorable. I am so impressed. (I have no artistic talent to speak of...so your felt creations are a MARVEL!)

How can one not stop and make a comment on how GREAT those felt food items are?!! I especially loved the Asian themed food, but all of it was fabulous. Brilliant idea for all the reasons Heather mentioned. And it expresses your love for this child. Wonderful.
