I ordered this really neat craft book from Japan a couple of months back. I saw it online and it had lots of cute pictures and patterns of food made from felt. Here is a play set that I made from the pattern book (cake, swiss roll, chocolate dipped strawberries, a brownie and cookies with sprinkles)

The instructions were really detailed and came with diagrams and cut out patterns so they were fairly easy to follow. This is the first time that I had really sewn with felt and I found it really easy to cut, but at the same time I had to undo my hand-stitching every once in awhile because it is so obvious when they were uneven Smiley (I'm used to machine sewing!)

Thanks Smiley

Rissasan: Of course I don't mind sharing! The book is called "20 cm no Fuiruto de tsukuru. Fuiruto no Omamagoto". I'm not sure what the last word means? But my crappy translation of the title is 20 Centimetre fruit that you make Smiley

I guess if you want to search for it on Amazon, you could do it by ISBN#. The ISBN is 4-529-04265-0

Unfortunately the instructions are only in Japanese. If you wanted to try and make the food just by looking at the pictures the book has lots of clear pictures Smiley, but the patterns might be hard to match up because they are all together on one pull-out piece at the end of the book.
