I tried my hand at making some felt food a few weeks back. Got online and looked up a few references from Etsy and Pinterest to see how the pros do it. I was blown away at how intricate you can get. I mean, I wanted to bust into my computer and eat some of the adorable/delicious looking cupcakes I saw. I used what I had and just played around. Most pieces I just used all purpose glue to double the thickness and add durability. I added a few little embroidery details (as many as I had patience for). Some foods I ran out of time to make that also look very easy were: bacon and cookies (now that sounds yummy together).
What I learned:
- Sugar snap peas don't deserve that much embroidery...two was my limit.
- But in all seriousness, it was a lot of fun to make these playful morsels. The best things in life just take a little time.
