Play Food - How To Make A Felt S'More For Your Foodie Playsets!

Here is my next installment on how to make felt food items for your little girls play sets! I think these would also be cute for holiday tree ornaments too.

Here is what you will need:

tan, dark brown and white craft or wool felt
tan, dark brown and white embroidery floss
measuring tape and sewing needle
small amount of quilting batting (scraps will work fine)

How To Make Felt Graham Crackers

You will need four pieces of tan felt that each measure 2 1/2" square. Place two of these squares together and using two strands of tan embroidery floss, blanket stitch the squares together. Repeat for the other graham cracker.

How To Make The Felt Chocolate Square

You will need two pieces of dark brown felt that measure 2" square. Using two strands of dark brown embroidery floss, blanket stitch the two squares together.

How To Make The Felt Marshmallow

You will need two white squares of felt that each measure 2" square. You will need one strip of white felt that measures 1/2" by 8 1/4" in size. Using two strands of white floss, blanket stitch the one white square to one side of the white felt strip. Using two strands of white embroidery floss, blanket stitch the second white square to the other side of the strip going around 3 1/2 of the sides. Once you reach 1/2 of the final side, insert some flat quilt batting inside and then finish blanket stitching it shut.

Note: I found that if I used poly-fiber fill, it made my marshmallow too puffy so I chose to use flat quilt batting.

You can leave all of the piece separate or you can use craft glue to glue the pieces together or hand sew them together. Personally, I like them kept apart so that my grand daughter can play with each piece separately.
