Hello again, felting friends. Welcome to week 2 of Apartment Therapy's Play Food Felt-a-Long where we're making felt food gifts together in time for the holidays. Last week, we made breakfast and now we're moving on to lunch!
I decided to make my main lunch item a sandwich for two reasons. First, kids enjoy assembling food and a sandwich leaves open lots of possibilities to add to in the future. I've made ingredients for a ham sandwich, a cheese sandwich, a PB&J sandwich or some kid-invented mashup like a lettuce, peanut butter, Swiss sandwich. Secondly, I made sliced bread once before and the results were...wonky, so I wanted redemption.
This lunch is also a bit of a nod to my first grader son who asks for PB&J and apple slices every day for his lunch. I also made a bag of chips which my son wishes he had ever day.
Week 2 Assignment:
1. Make lunch items from the list of tutorials (or buy a pattern on Etsy or make something up yourself). Make as much or as little as you want. Lunch can be something typical like a sandwich or salad, or pretend you're going out for dim sum!
2. (optional) Share/show off your work by tagging your food photos with #atfeltalong on Instagram or Twitter or email them to me and, if we get enough, I'll round them all up into a post.
3. Brag to your friends about already having some homemade gifts under your belt to put under the tree!
If you're brand new to this, you might start with pizza or sushi.
If you get hung up, email me for help and I'll do my best. Remember, I'm not a sewing expert but my meal turned out pretty good - you can do this, too.
A few of you have posted photos of the breakfasts you made last week (thank you!) and they're wonderful! Here they are (and remember to use #atfeltalong):
