Scrap Material Play Food

I had this inspiration a long time ago when I saw a felt food basket from Ikea. It was DARLING! A light bulb went off in my head at that time and I thought, "hmmm.... I could make something like that, I have a whole bunch of scraps I could use." We made a kitchen from a night stand (coming soon) for our little girl for Christmas. Why not make some food to go with! So I did! It has been AWESOME! And I know no one in the world has the same food! All unique and one of a kind! I love one of a kind things! Check it out!

The lettuce took me a LONG time and I broke 2 needles! I think it turned out the best! It was worth all the blood, sweat and toil. I used a thick LONG strip of green canvas, olive green ribbon and a fun old green polka dot material for the back,

The apple turned out cute too, it was just a big ball for a while, then I thought, why don't I tighten the middle with a string going through the top and bottom of the apple? So there is a knot you can't see on top and on the bottom to make it look more "apple" shaped.

This is a wash cloth! Ha ha, it has the same texture as broccoli! 

This tomato pin cushion was also inspiration. My little girl grabbed it one day - thank heavens there were no pins in it, but pretended to eat it! At that moment I knew it would be fun to make her some play food! They have been SOO fun and kid friendly!
