Home Made Felt Chinese Food

I made this felt food for the girls
and their play kitchen a while back.

But never got around to posting it....

Chinese take-out and Sushi
are favorite foods
of the Frog Princess.

If you have older kids,
this would be super fun
to do with them...
(I could see mini versions of this food
for our American Girl-sized dolls!)

This is my easy-peasy
felt food.

To make the broccoli:

1. Fold over
a piece of green felt
roll it up
(like a cinnamon roll)

2. Glue the little stem
with some hot glue
(from your glue gun)
Don't burn your fingers
(I always do!)

3. Then carefully snip
the little folds
with some small
sharp scissors
to create the "loops".

The "Spring Roll"
was made by cutting up
long and skinny
bits of left over felt
from my scrap basket
in cream, green, orange
(like matchstick carrots)

Wrap it all up
in a piece of tan felt

Glue the ends and seam
when it looks like a spring roll.

Then, I carefully cut it in half.

For the "Fortune Cookies"
Just cut a circle of tan felt,
fold it in half
and secure the edges
with a bit of glue.

(ppssst...I used my Sizzix Circle template
so it was super-dooper easy!)

I did cheat and use
a tiny bit of thread
to sew the two ends
to make them touch....

but I'm guessing you
could do it with glue
if you REALLY don't want
to sew anything!

now where's my duck sauce?
