Play Food - How To Make Felt Pancakes and Sausages

As part of my continuing series on how to make Faux Food items for your little girl to play is how I made my felt pancakes and sausages. You will need to read through my list of supplies before you get started. They are completely handsewn, so no sewing machine is required. They work up quickly so its a great take-along project.

Supplies Needed For Pancakes:

Cream, Tan and Dark Brown Felt
Embroidery Floss - Cream, Tan and Dark Brown
Scissors and a Blunt Tip Sewing Needle
Pattern (see below)

Supplies Needed For The Sausage Links:

Dark Brown Felt
Dark Brown Embroidery Floss
Small Amount of Poly-Fiber Fill Stuffing
Scissors and a Blunt Tip Sewing Needle
Pattern (see below)

Pancakes Pattern: On printer paper, draw 5" and 4" diameter circles which will make your pancake. For the syrup, just free-hand a shape that measures approximately 2 3/4" in size.

Sausage Links Pattern: Draw a rectangle that measures 3 3/4" by 3" in size.

Note: All blanket stitching is done with two strands of embroidery floss.

Pancakes Directions: From cream colored felt, cut two 5" diameter circles. From tan colored felt, cut one 4" diameter circle and from dark brown felt, cut one syrup pattern. Center the dark brown syrup piece onto the tan pancake piece and blanket stitch around it to attach it to the tan piece. Fasten off on the backside. Next, lay the tan piece on top of the cream piece and blanket stitch around it to connect it to the cream piece of felt. Fasten off. Finally, place both cream colored pieces of felt together and blanket stitch around the entire circumference of the pancake. Fasten off by hiding your floss ends inside.

Optional: If you would like to make a simple pat of butter for your pancakes, just cut two 1" squares from yellow felt and blanket stitch them together. We decided to not attach the butter pat to our pancakes.

Sausage Links Directions: Use your rectangle pattern to cut three rectangles from dark brown felt. These will make three pieces of sausage. Use two strands of embroidery floss and hand sew a running stitch to connect the two long edges together to form a tube. Once the tube is completed, use the floss to hand gather one of the ends closed. Insert some poly-fiber fill into your u-shaped tube and firmly pack it in there. Once its packed in, use the embroidery floss to hand gather the end and fasten off.
