Felt Play Food: Pancakes, Eggs and Bacon


When I was a little kid, I loved nothing more than to play house. Shocking, I know. I spent hours “cooking” in my play kitchen. So, the handmade felt food craze was more than I could resist.


I don’t have kids but I do have a good friend, Robin, who has a sweet little girl in need of some felt play food. And by need I really mean I needed to make some and she happens to be just barely old enough to play with it.


For the bacon, I sewed strips of cream felt onto dark brown felt and then ran a gathering stitch up the middle.


The pancakes are 4 layers of tan felt sewn together and topped with brown felt syrup and yellow felt butter. I sewed the butter together, then sewed it to the syrup and then sewed the whole shebang onto one layer of pancake. Then I sewed the pancake layers together.



  1. Adorable. I had to eat fish for a week from the play kitchen. Sandwiches with ham and nutella seem also to be eatabe:) thank u for sharing

  2. I loved playing house when I was a little girl, so fun!

    I run Fun Family Crafts, a site similar in nature to Craftgawker and Spotlight, but different in that it's a library of craft tutorials geared only at kids. I would love it if you'd stop by and submit this to be featured! (I link to you, I don't post your tutorial on the site) Feel free to submit as many kid friendly craft tutorials as you like!
