Felt Food - Chocolate Pie With Whipped Cream - Play Food

I wanted to make a few different sliced pie pieces for my grand daughters felt food play set that I have been making and today I decided to try to make a slice of chocolate pie with whipped topping with a little cherry on top. This was my third attempt at making a slice of pie and over-all, it came out pretty good. Its not fancy and elaborate, just simply thrown together.

I did not use a pattern to make it so I will tell you how I did it so you can make one yourself.

Felt Sliced Chocolate Pie - Supplies Used:

Dark Brown, White and Red Craft Felt
Dark Brown, White and Red Embroidery Floss
2 1/2 hand fulls of stuffing
Embroidery Needle, Scissors

I started off by drawing a triangle on a piece of paper. Mine measures approx. 4 1/2" long by 3" wide at its widest point. However, you can make yours as small or as large as you would like.

I used this triangle to cut out 2 triangles from my dark brown colored felt to represent the top and bottom crusts of my pie slice. I wanted my pie slice to be 2 3/4" high so I cut out of dark brown felt 2 pieces that each measure 2 3/4" high by 4 1/2" long. These serve as my 2 long sides of my pie slice. Next, I cut out of dark brown felt a piece that measures 2 3/4" by 3" for my back piece. Out of white felt, I cut out 5 strips that measure the length of my felt sheet by 1/4" wide that will be used to make the whipped cream. Finally out of a scrap piece of red felt, I cut a circle that measures 2 1/2" in diameter to be used for my cherry.

You will first assemble all of your dark brown felt pieces. Simple sew them all together into a wedge shape by hand stitching them together (I used a blanket stitch) or by machine sewing them and inserting some fiber fill stuffing inside so it holds it shape.

Next, hand or machine gather the white felt strips. I tightly gathered mine and then I hand sewn them to the top of my pie slice which took about 15 minutes. Once I had them on, I took 2 strands of red embroidery floss and did a running stitch around the edge of my red felt circle and gathered it up with a little stuffing inside it. I then sewed that to the top of my pie. (see photo)

Simple, Quick and Effective. Its not fancy and elaborate but it serves its purpose!
