In any case, I’ve been making some wet felted wool apples as fall decorations (and for playing) which got me back into a play food kick, and was seduced into buying this pattern from UmeCrafts.
How fun does this look?! I’ve been looking at her patterns for awhile, and at only $5.90, I figured I’d spring for one and see if I liked how her patterns worked. (Gotta love a Paypal balance. It’s like free money.) She sent the pdf pattern right away, so now I just need to get started on it! Maybe tomorrow. I’ve been doing some niece birthday crafting.
If you don’t want to make your own felt play food, there are plenty of crafty, talented people selling it on Etsy. Or, my favorite place to buy felt play food, the Wool Food Market. Katie’s stuff is amazing! It’s all wet-felted and needle felted wool (which means she uses wool roving) as opposed to using wool felt sheets. We have her Easter eggs from last year, and they were so awesome to hide around the house on Easter morning. We also have a few other things, and it’s all adorable. Check out her gallery. I covet the earth layers set.
