Play Food - How To Make Felt Toaster Pastries

As part of my weekly installment on how to make faux food (felt foodie items) for your little one to play with, here is how I made my felt toaster pastries aka PopTarts.

Supplies Needed:

Light Tan, Pink and Vanilla Colored Craft Felt
Light Tan, Vanilla and Pink embroidery floss
Blunt Tip Sewing Needle and Scissors
Tiny Pink Seed Beads (I used pink ones with silver centers)
Pinking Sheers (optional)

Pattern: On printer paper, draw a rectangle that measures 3 1/2" wide by 4 3/4" tall. Draw a second rectangle (icing) that measures 2 3/4" wide by 3 3/4" tall.

Cutting The Felt: For each toaster pastry, you will need two of the large rectangles cut from tan colored felt. Decide if you want your pastry to have pink or vanilla icing and cut one from the coordinating felt color.

Assembly: Using two strands of pink embroidery floss, hand sew tiny pink seed beads onto your smaller piece of felt to represent strawberry sprinkles. Once you have completed that, use two strands of embroidery floss (same color as your icing) to hand sew on your icing felt to one of your tan felt pieces. I used a tiny whip stitch to do this on the pink one and a blanket stitch on the vanilla one. (either stitch will work just fine).

Once you have that completed, lay your two pieces of tan felt together, lining up their edges and blanket stitch around the entire pastry using two strands of tan embroidery floss.

Optional: If desired, you can use pinking sheers to cut out your icing felt to give the edges a zig-zag appearance.
