Hello again and welcome to Apartment Therapy's Play Food Felt-a-Long where we're buddying up to produce a buffet of play food in time for the holidays. Week three is upon us: dinner. I know what you're thinking: it's Thanksgiving week and you want me to make a pretend dinner???

I used adhesive velcro tabs to connect the drumsticks and wings which makes for a floppy bird :)

No worries if this is a busy week for you - catch up another time if you can. And enjoy your real, edible Thanksgiving dinner!

The meal I made this week is sort of a nod to Thanksgiving. I used directions for a felt turkey, but chose to make mine in smaller dimensions so I ended up with something that's more like a small chicken or perhaps a Cornish hen. I added mashed potatoes, broccoli florets and carrot medallions.

Week 3 Assignment:

1. Make dinner items from our list of tutorials (or buy a pattern on Etsy or make something up yourself). Dinner can be anything - pasta, dumplings, pizza, whatever you feel like making.

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 up into a post.

3. Celebrate your accomplishment with a cookie, a nap, or both.


For newbies, pasta is easy to make, especially the farfalle (though I do recommend using pinking shears for those). Dumplings and sushi are also good choices for beginners.

If you get hung up, email me for help and I'll do my best.
