My cousin turned 11 last month and wanted me to make him a felt pizza with toppings that he could play with. So I did.

















A close-up of the pizza:

All I did was take a piece of tan felt and cut the biggest circle I could from it. Then I cut another circle about 3/4" less all around.
On the first circle, I folded in the edge about 3/4" and machine stitched the end down. I left the ends open so I could stuff a little batting in for the crust.
I then machine sewed the second circle to the first, wrong sides out. I left a little opening so I could stuff the batting in and then turned it inside out.
Next I stiched 2 vertical & 2 horizontal seams and cut down the middle so I had 4 pieces. I took each in turn and stuffed each with batting then sewed the edges shut.
Now I had 4 little tan poofy triangles.
I then cut 4 triangles of red felt for the sauce & hand stitched them on.
Next came the cheese.
Then I had a plain pizza. You could stop there or make some toppings. I made some mushrooms, pepperoni, onions, sausage & peppers. These I did not sew down. I left them loose so he could play and make his own custom ordered pizzas.

I also made the pizza box out of Bristol board. I just took apart a real pizza box, sketched how it was put together and then made my own miniture version.

If anyone has any question, please ask!

That is really well done.  What a great gift for your cousin.  I'll bet he loves it!  I may just have to whip one of these up myself for my daughters.  They love play food kinds of stuff (plus its so much easier to clean up than the "real" stuff  Wink).
