Felt foods, and a GIVEAWAY

Making play foods from felt is seriously addictive. The more I look for tutorials online, the more I find. Too bad my family still needs to eat real food, too, because I could easily devote all my time to cooking up the fake stuff.

These are some of the links to felt food tutorials I have found online:


Breakfast
-         bacon
-         sausages
-         pancakes
-         syrup
-         butter pat
-         orange slice


Fruits
-         banana: out of peel, sliced)
-         orange
-         apple
-         orange/lemon slice
-         strawberry
-         kiwi
 -         watermelon
-    cherries

Veggies
-         carrots
-         squash
-         egg plant
-         potato
-         corn on the cob
-     beets
-     lettuce
-         green beans

Dinners
-         pizza and toppings
-         ravioli/farfalle w/sauce and meatballs
-         turkey dinner
-         burger and fries
-         steak
-         taco
-         fajita
-         pot stickers
-         lasagna

Sweets/snacks
-         lollipop
-         ice cream
-         cake
-         donut
-         pumpkin pie
-         cinnamon roll
-         cupcake
-         cookies (heart-shaped, chocolate-chip, M&Ms)
-         chocolate bar
-         popcorn  in bag
-         tortilla chips


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And now for the giveaway:

Please enter to win a felt food play set of your choice. You can choose between getting a 

breakfast set (3 pancakes, syrup, butter, and 2 each of bacon, sausages, sunny-side up eggs, and orange slices),

(2 sausages not pictured in this set, but will be included)

or

sweet foods set (2 each of cinnamon rolls, donuts, large and small heart-shaped cookies, and chocolate chip and M&M cookies)



or a

sandwich kit (2 slices of bread, 2 peanut butter and one jelly topping, 1 each of Swiss cheese and bologna, and 2 each of tomato slices and lettuce).


These are the same type of sets I made for Isaac, Miriam, and Becky's birthdays, but obviously you would get a new, never-played-with-before, set. To make shipping easier, I will not be able to include the clear plastic boxes that we store these foods in at home, but you can get your own from a deli or bakery.

To enter the giveaway, do one, some, or all of the following:

- Leave a comment below (no anonymous comments - Google ID or other required)
- Leave another comment with a link to your favorite felt food(s).
- Become a follower of this blog, and leave a comment letting me know that you did so.
- Post about this giveaway on your blog, and leave a comment letting me know that you did so.
- Share this post on facebook, and leave me a comment letting me know that you did so.

That means you could get as many as FIVE entries, BUT you MUST leave a separate comment for each entry. 

Deadline to enter is Sunday, March 13th, 2011.

Open to all readers. Restrictions apply for some countries.


I will give away one set per every 40 entries, so if there are a lot, your chances will still be pretty decent that you may get one. Please allow about one week after the giveaway is over for your set to ship, as I will not start making them until I know how many I need to make, and of which kind.

Have fun!

  2. Hi, I'm Kat! I'm your reader from Savannah. My favorite food is a local treat called pralines. Its made from lots of butter and cream cooked to a caramel-like candy with pecans. So good!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Oh how fun! I was inspired to start making these for my children (for Christmas/Birthday gifts this year) after seeing these sets in your previous posts! I agree that they are so addictive to make...I have been waiting all week for a few other sheets of felt to arrive!

    I'm not sure whether you will be able to send them to me if I won (Ireland) but I will certainly comment again when I have linked your great giveaway to my blog!

  4. Ohh what fun. I did 3. I re-posted on FB and my blog, and I signed up to follow. I thoght I was a follower, but I was wrong. So now I am.

  5. I would love one, I've been wanting to try these but have no sewing skills. But my boys love play food.

  6. Kat, I will include your anonymous comment in the giveaway, because you left it before I edited the original post to require entries be left with Google/Open ID.

    Sarah, yes, shipping to Ireland is fine. I checked international postage rates before publishing this post. Because felt is so light-weight and relatively small, it is not that expensive.

    Kimmie, please leave me two more comments. I'm not trying to be a stickler, but that is the only way I will be able to keep track of who has how many entries.

  22. Felt toys are my favourite choice for presents for my little cousins - imaginative play is awesome and they're really cute too.

    PS: Zsuzsanna, I hope leaving just my name is okay?

  23. And here's a link to where I usually get my felt toys from - Ikea, since I don't posess either a sewing machine or any creative talent, ha! They have vegetables, breakfast and desserts too, but I love the fruit because they're so colourful.

    Although it's not a food, I particularly liked their felt tool belt, with little screwdrivers and hammers. My 4 year old cousin plays with his constantly.
