Pizza Anyone?

I can hardly believe it, but BabyB has his second birthday coming up very soon.  For Christmas, he received a state of the art "Kitchen" (that he calls his "house") along with lots of dishes and cookware.  He has a great time cooking for his mama and daddy, however, most of his toy food consists of wooden likenesses of milk, waffles and juice cartons.

I did a quick search on Etsy and found some really great in-the-hoop embroidery designs for felt food.  For those unfamiliar with the terminology, "in-the-hoop" designs refer to the fact that the entire object is stitched on an embroidery/sewing machine, within a hoop.  The backing is even attached during the process and all of the edges are finished.

Looking for the most bang for my buck, I decided to make miniature bags of food, pizza and sandwiches and purchased the designs from Sewing For Sarah and NewfoundApplique.  After a quick trip to Joann's for additional colors of felt, I set to work.

They are so cute and while a little bit time-consuming, they are quite easy--and fun-- to make.
By the end of the day, I had snacks ready for a toddler's kitchen.
Pizza, anyone?
