I had to de-lurk to post my most recent (and totally easy) crafty creation. I'm trying to overhaul my girls' play kitchen with handcrafted all-natural items (I'm just too spooked by the Made in China food in there now). So, the other day I grabbed an old holey wool sweater and some wool batting. Felted the sweater and sliced away. Wet felted some balls, and voila! spaghetti and meatballs (hope the photo works)
I gave slightly more specific instructions on my blog here
. I also ran with the inspiration and tried to make a useful resource there that lists a lot of free patterns, tutorials, craft supply resources, and whatnot for making play food. I hope that this helps somebody and inspires them as I am always inspired when I spend time here.
