The Needle Felted Fruit Collection! – Felting


I love how popular it is these days to have felted food for our children to play with in their kitchens.  Gone are the days of the throw away plastic foods that ended up crushed and chewed on.  Not only can we make them all sorts of things but they can make them along with us.

I feel that if children have a hand in creating the play item they have more respect for it and will treat it with care in their play time, so it doesn’t just end up in the sandpit or pulled to pieces.

These great little projects from give you the step by step for all 3 of her fruit items.  Initially done as a series I have compiled them here for you in one easy space!

I’m sure you will love creating these three and set off in search of more fun foods like donuts, cakes, vegetables, and more.  Once you start looking you will be amazed by all the pizza, bacon and eggs, swiss cheese and more that is out there!

Happy Felting!
