I am just catching on to the felt play food scene. It was love at first sight when I saw these babies...
Are you kidding me? Felt cinnamon rolls. That has got to be one of the cutest things I have ever seen. The genius behind that cinnamon roll is Maggie from Smashed Peas and Carrots. If you have not been to her blog, you MUST go. Her felt food is amazing. She is just awesome in my book. The tutorial for this perfect roll can be found here.
Next, I saw this blueberry muffin with removable liner. Seriously? Her tutorials are so wonderful that you actually feel like you may just be able to do it yourself. (I don't feel like that too often.) You can find the tutorial for this little treat here.
She put together this gift idea that I thought was truly one of the cutest things I had seen. A breakfast basket of felt food.
The way she did the eggs almost put me over the edge. She puts them inside a white plastic egg so the kids can "crack" them open. How stinkin' cute is that?
So, after seeing all that, I knew that I was going to be making these for gifts. I searched for a simple doughnut tutorial next and found this one here. Cindy from Skip to My Lou had an awesome and easy to follow tutorial on how to make this cutie...
So, this little set of play felt food was one of Avery's birthday presents this year. I used pink and white polka-dot felt for the muffin liners. I also used white puffy paint that was "icing" on the cinnamon rolls for sprinkles on the doughnuts. They aren't as cute (with the lack of stitched-on colored sprinkles), but Avery was thrilled with them and Tyson tried to actually eat one so I guess it worked. It is super fun and addicting once you see the end result. I can't wait to make more.
Thanks Cindy and Maggie for your awesome tutorials and wonderful ideas! Be sure to check out their blogs if you haven't yet. Such wonderful inspiration and so much fun to be had!
