Today’s sale is for felt cookies. So cute and just the right size for a tea party. Cookies are priced at 5 for $4 (usually $5) Chocolate Chip, Iced Sugar or a Mixture.

Since the baked potato sold, my next item that I’m putting on sale is my chicken nuggets. Regularly they are $6, but I’m taking a dollar off and make them $5.
This is a yummy-looking baked sweet potato (yam) to add to your child’s play food collection. (Or yours… I know about you!)
This is the used kitchen cabinet that we bought at a Habitat for Humanity Restore. Here is the post with what it originally looked like.
We applied a couple of 8 1/2 x 11 adhesive magnet sheets (~ $5 delivered from ebay) to the front so that magnets would stick. We would have preferred magnetic paint, but it seems to run $20 a can, so this was a much cheaper option. I do have to say that the power of the magnet sheet isn’t great. One thing to remember is that you are putting up a magnet and not metal, so some magnets that you put on might stick and some might repel, depending on the polarity. If there is something you really want to use or are making magnets to match, test them first and make sure the “sticky” side is facing out.
The original handle was a little white ceramic circle. We wanted it to look a little more like a refrigerator handle, so we picked this one up at Lowe’s for $3.
We painted it with some paint that we already had. It looks nice, but it might scratch off pretty fast. That’ll be a watch and see.
We saved some plastic foods that the kids would recognize. I also was on a big crochet kick and crocheted a selection of new things – a couple of eggs (in the carton), a cookie, a jar of peanut butter, a block of tofu and a stalk of celery. The eggs were the only things that I used a pattern for. The rest I just made up as I went along. If you were interested in any of these patterns, I could try to remember what I did. I’m pretty pleased with the peanut butter jar. I meant to put a label on it, but forgot and then didn’t have enough time. I think that I would just cut a rectangle of felt and sew on a peanut shape.
The kids really like it. They loaded it right up with our felt felt food. Quinn especially liked identifying fruits and veggies for the “Crisper drawer” – which is just a cardboard box covered in paper.
Thought I would compile a selection of felt food tutorials of a Thanksgiving-type nature. I was sure that I would find a ton, and I did. If you find the whole “first thanksgiving” thing as questionable as I do, just select items that fit with your beliefs.
You could make a cornucopia center-piece and than add the pieces to your kidlets’ felt food bin after dinner. This isn’t felt, but I think felt might not have the structure you would want, anyway. It is from Crafty Staci
Here are some good foods to put inside:
I’ve always loved this ear of corn pattern. I think it would be neat to use several felt colors in the weaving and make “Indian Corn.” (Is there a PC name for this type of corn other than dried multi-colored corn?)
There is a great, free tutorial here at Cook, Clean, Craft.
A summer squash, of course…
Here is a nice tutorial from Cut Out and Keep
Here is another tutorial from Shelley Inspired that is a free download that has another summer squash, carrots, cucumber, eggplant, potato and a few others. She calls it her Farmer’s Market Set.
Maggie at Smashed Peas and Carrots has put together roasted turkey with removable drumsticks.
Some green beans from Craftiness is not Optional.
Back to Smashed Peas and Carrots for pumpkin pie. She shows how to make a dollop of whipped cream on the top, which I think totally makes the whole thing.
This is already way longer than I intended, but you may also want to consider adding fruits to your cornucopia or adding mashed potatoes, dinner rolls or cranberry relish to the menu.
What are some of your Thanksgiving food traditions.
I know I twittered about it, but I haven’t posted any real actual pictures of my felt food that I’m selling at Etsy.
I also finally got the dolls posted today. I only have enough done for one complete set right now, so there is only one listing. Grab it early!
