Not my own kiddies, but the kiddies in my class (4th and 5th graders). I got really into making little felt...foods and shapes during the Hair Stuff Swap. I have a really small class (9 boys, 2 girls) so I made barrettes for the girls. The boys felt very left out and asked for custom pins. Here are the first few. I will keep adding pics as I make more. They don't take very long at all. I got the brownie and the taquito done last night while watching Gossip Girl.

These are pins, a brownie and a taquito. You can't tell from this view but if you were to look in the end of the taquito you can see shredded meat and some green guacamole.


A dumpling...for a little girl who wants to be called "dumpling". The bf said it looked like an empanada...but dumplings are tricky.... It is a hair clip but apparently she hates wearing anything in her hair so it has been clipped to her pocket.


Fun little projects. Tonight I'm working on a taco and a chicken "face"...which isn't actually a food.

Thanks for the feedback...  Grin

Technically I think an empanada is a kind of pastry...since they can have meat in them or fruit.

I like to think that the cuteness makes up for any lapses in realism.

...if there were an English word for empanada....it just....might just be Hot Pocket...though empanadas are much tastier....

These are all super cute!

In English we also call them empanadas.  I suppose some people call them meat pastries.  Smiley

Another pair. The chicken isn't actually in food form...but I don't want to start another whole topic. That litle boy requested a "chicken face." ...now he wants an egg for it to 'poop' out...I may have to pass.



In case anyone was interested or thinking of making something similar...here is the back view....



I'm trying to make them relatively durable...since I don't really want to be repairing them from now until June. I already had to resew an eye on the dumpling/empanada.

Has anyone else noticed that Latin/South American/Mexican type foods are easier to craft identifiably? If I get asked to craft spaghetti or a sandwich....that would be tricky.
