Felt Food Extreme

Hello! Lots of new stuff going on around here since I've been gone. I am just about done with my nanny job and taking an online class so that maybe, just maybe I can get a teaching job in the near future. We have not one, but two cats in the house, both rescued from the cruel world which abandons even 6 week-old babies (that would be the newest one, currently crying from her quarantine room. Only 4 more days of this!) And of course, new crafts and ideas sprouting everyday. Like for instance the Christmas present idea I had for my husband! Have to work on that when he's on night shift, and since I won't be able to complete it in front of him, will have to send it off for completion, so that's why I'm 6 months ahead.

But today I thought I'd try to complete an update to the felt food gifts I was making for my friend's 3 year old (well, she's 3 now). I took her the last box a few months ago and she had the biggest kick out of checking them all out. Then she showed me her new play kitchen set complete with all the great food. I can tell the food pieces will never be lonely, at least not for a long while.

Again, one super stuffed, medium sized "if it fits, it ships" boxes from the post office.

Breakfast: eggs in the carton, sunny-side up eggs (oh no! Her link isn't working! Hopefully I can get this remedied...these were SO not something I could have come up with on my own!), and bacon.

Halved lemons, oranges, and kiwi. What you can't see is that they have velcro centers so they can be cut apart! Oh, and the orange sort-of unbalanced the pic, so they are not shown.

"Tot-tarts", AKA toaster pastries.

Chocolate glazed doughnuts from Krispy Kreme. Because if you're going to splurge on a doughnut, it's got to be only the best!

This box also had a few extras from sets I hadn't finished with the previous set.

Um...oops. I made a LOT of food!! Didn't quite realize how much until I saw it all together.

She's quite the Southern cook! Who knows, maybe a Paula Deen in the making!

Some of these I made from others tutorials, and if so, you can find them by clicking on the link. If no link, I created my own patterns by seeing what others had done and visualizing it myself. I would like to swear that I will eventually get tutorials up on those, but lets be realistic for a while, ok? Anyway, I'll be making more soon for another friend whose daughter will be 2 this year, so that can be a goal. I will TRY to make tutorials. Just can't swear to it right now!
