Felt Brown Bag Lunch Tutorial

    Posted by  ·  March 9, 2009

    I don’t know what it is but I love felt food.  Today on the menu is a very unhealthy sack lunch!

    I have provided the instructions here in this post. You can make the shapes up as you go along or if you want to make it  really easy you can download the templates for the food for $1.75 or place my button (code in the left sidebar) on your blog and you may download the templates for free. E-mail me that you have placed the button (or already have the button)  and I will e-mail you the templates.

    The Brown Paper Bag

    You need two pieces of light brown felt. Cut a  square out of the bottom corner on each side.  With pinking shears trim across the top. Trim just enough to pink the top.  Sew across the bottom and along each side.

    felt-sack-11Pinch the side and bottom together and sew.

    felt-sack-2

    Finished!

    felt-sack-3

    The Chip Bag and Chips

    Cut two pieces of felt. Embellish the front with stripe and medallion. I meant to embroider “chips” in the white circle.  You could also write chips with a paint marker.

    chips-1Place right sides together and stitch along each side. Turn right side out and then stitch across the bottom.  I used a blanket stitch along with a couple rows of stitching.

    chips-1a

    Cut chips out of yellow felt. Stitch together close to the edge. You can add rows of stitching to make them ‘ruffled’ chips if you like.

    chips-2The Ho Ho

    Cut 2 pieces if dark brown felt and two pieces of white felt.

    Place the pieces together and sew around the outside edge, leaving an opening for turning on the short side.

    ding-dong-1

    Turn right side out. Top stitch around the edge on the white piece only. Don’t worry about closing the openings–they will be in the center. Place the white piece on top of the dark brown (bottom edges lined up) and roll up.

    ding-dong-2Slip stitch the roll closed along the outside edge.

    ding-dong-3

    The Sandwich

    Cut two pieces of off – white fabric  and a strip of light brown felt about. You might need to attach two pieces together.

    sandwich-1

    Sew  the strip to one side of the white square overlapping the ends.

    sandwich-2

    Sew the white square to the other side leaving an opening for turning.

    sandwich-3

    Turn right side out. Stuff with polyester fiberfill and slip stitch opening closed.

    Make ingredients for your sandwich by sewing two of each color together.  You can sew around the edge leaving an opening for turning, turn and topstitch or just sew the pieces together (this is how I made them except for the bologna which I turned).  Add details with your machine.

    sandwich-4

    Every sack lunch sandwich needs a baggie.

    The Baggie

    Using medium weight vinyl (this is really thin) fold top down  and bottom up (bottom edge lays on top of the top edge. Sew along each side.

    baggie-1Pinch corners and sew across 1 inch from edge.

    baggie-2Do this for all four corners.

    baggie-3

    Trim off corners.

    baggie-4Turn right side out and slip in the sandwich.

    baggie-5

    Bon Appetit!

    Still hungry try some doughnuts!

      This is absolutely adorable. I have not made any felt food yet but I am wanting to. I have a little one that has the plastic food in his play kitchen but I think the felt food would be so much nicer. Thanks for sharing this.
      P.s. I just found your website over the past weekend and I am loving all your ideas what a nice site.

      Oh yeah! I've been dying to make some felt food...I think that my four year old boy would play with them but I also have a niece and nephew that would find them delightful.

      Oh and I've visited Wool Central online before and I would love to win me some felt!

I have four kids under four, I think they will really enjoy this, I'm thinking my daughter my might be able to do some of the stitching too. How do I download the template for free?
    32. Monday, March 9th, 2009

      This is so cute! And coincidentally, I just came home from the store with more felt. I've recently "found" this neat material. I'm loving how it doesn't fray. This is DEFINITELY going on my list of "must-do" projects.
    34. Monday, March 9th, 2009
      So so cute!! I have always been into the wood playfood, but hate that the paint peels. This is a perfect alternative! I have got to try this for my little girls kitchen! Thanks for all of your great ideas!
    35. Monday, March 9th, 2009

      I took the homemade holiday challenge this year and one of the things I made for my girls was felt food. They LOVED it. It was just as much fun for me to make than it is for them to play with it. The Ding-Dong looks good enough to eat. Great Job!

      Your felt play food is amazing! It looks so realistic. What a wonderful way to make play food out such an economical supply, felt! Play food is pricey so what a savings! Plus the child has the pride and thrill of knowing Mom made it. You are so very talented.

    166. Wednesday, March 11th, 2009
      These are so cute! I have recently discovered an obsession for felt food. I made strawberries and cupcakes for my son's birthday. The best part is he loves them - all the encouragement I need to go felt food crazy! Thanks so much for sharing how you did everything. I find too many people don't want to share how they make their felt food.

      I'm with you on the felt food obssession! My kids keep asking me for more felt food (they're especially keen on fruit and vegies for some reason), and I keep obliging so it's great to get more ideas from others. Thanks.
    172. Thursday, March 12th, 2009
      This is adorable! I'm so inspired to try making these...
    173. Laura
      Thursday, March 12th, 2009
      These are adorable and I want to try making for my daughter's birthday. I've never worked with wool felt before, just the cheap craft stuff. I've heard that wool felt shrinks - so do you wash it first or just use it as it comes? Can you wash the finished product if it gets dirty (hot water, cold water?) or will that wreck it? Appreciate your wisdom if you can help me with these questions! Thank you...

      This is so adorably cute! I remember how much my younger sister loved playing with fake food as a child. I'll certainly keep this in mind next time I'm searching for a gift for a youngster.

      I absolutely LOVE this! There is something about felt food items that is just amazing to me. They were may favorite things to play with as a kid. If I had my own children, I'd make these up in a heartbeat. Who said toys need to be loud and plastic to be fun!? (I put a post about this on my own blog, hope that's ok.) Keep the greatness coming!

      This is SO cute. Don't you just love Wool Felt Central? Those folks at Prairie Point Junction sure know how to treat their customers. I've told many about them and just placed an order there and saw the link to your lunch-sack tutorial...had to rush right over here!!!

My kids loved it and we hold it in a very special place in our home. I could make him a bagged lunch to take to work...Tee Hee...what a hoot!

      Cute idea, but when sewing the vinyl, stitch length should be longer so as not to perforate the vinyl so many times. Give a stronger seam. too

      I've been trying to find a way to make doll sized doughnuts for DD and just want to say THANK YOU! This will be far easier than fimo, at least for me. Perhaps I could make some mini-scrambled eggs out of the frosting pattern. Oh, such fun. Count me in on the felt and templates for the brown bag lunch giveaway! Such a great idea!
