Felt food – French fries

Nico loves French fries…Reads familiar? Yep, we were concentrating on re-creating some of Nico’s favorite foods to play, nothing is going to give you as much quiet play time for your buck than giving him what he likes. Anyways…I know that French fries probably do not rank very high on the list of “foods your toddler should eat”, but hey, he loves fruit and is adding more and more vegetables to his diet, so can’t fault him much, especially since the Quebecois fries are particularly yummy…

But I digress. For this one I took a slightly different approach, without sewing. For the “body” of the fries I cut strips of dense foam and then used these to measure the golden felt, cut it and wrapped it around the “fry” and glued it with tacky glue (sticks way better than your regular white glue and dries clear). With some of them I needed to do some cosmetic surgery afterwards, where I either managed to measure wrong or where I had cut crooked, just to cover the whole fry, but in the end I think they don’t look too shabby in their little fry carton!

Here is the pattern for both the foam body of the fries and the felt surroundings, if you want to make it all look more realistic, you can make some fries shorter and longer, you’ll just have to adjust the felt accordingly.

 

 

If you do this, we’d LOVE to see a photo of it. Email it to us or post it on our Facebook page. We’d love to do a Facebook album, a Pinterest board and a page of your creations :-)

  • Love your felt food Valerie! You should sell your food (I’m assuming you make it) My daughter loved play food as a toddler and still does! You are doing a lot of great things in such a short time! Thank you for sharing your blog!

      Thanks, Alex helped as well btw. Yes we made it all from scratch. I would need to do 3 posts a day for 2 weeks to catch up to what we do now, which is why I slowed down on doing things just so we can take a breather. Holidays were nuts! You do lots too!

  • Dear Valerie, My granddaughter is 16 mo. old and my daughter is asking that I make felt food for her. So far I have made her some strawberries, fried eggs, bread and cheese slices. I’m glad I found your site and am looking forward to seeing what else you have made! Ruth

      Hi Ruth,
      we have some craft I’m sure your grand daughter could do as well. We have the felt food my hubby and I did for him for Christmas. He seems happy with what he has right now, so we’ll wait for him to request some, or maybe make him some for his birthday this summer. I’m glad you found us and we are happy to have you here :)
