Faux Felt Food - Free Sliced Onions Pattern

Here is my next installment on faux food patterns that you make out of craft felt. These are great items to make for all of your little girls kitchen playsets. This faux food pattern is for sliced onions made out of white craft felt. You can make 3 slices of onions in less than 30 minutes and its completely done with hand sewing techniques.

Here is what you will need to make 3 onion slices:

1/3 sheet of white craft felt
white embroidery floss
sewing needle
paper template - For mine, I drew a 4", 3" and 2" diameter circles for my pattern and then cut the inside out so that I had a 1/4" wide ring.

You will simply place 2 of your white felt rings together and hand sew them together by first going around the inside diameter with small whip stitches using 2 strands of white embridery floss. Then hand sew the outer edges together using small whip stitches. Fasten off and hide your ends in between the 2 pieces.

You will do this for all of your onion ring slices. I decided to make mine in 3 different sizes...after all, you never get the same size twice if cutting a real onion.
