Felt Food: Lunch Time Tutorial

Felt Lunchtime Pattern by Little Crickets, we did purchase this pattern for $6, and it was so worth it, these are the cutest little lunch sets I’ve ever seen! Check out Little Cricket’s Etsy shop for more felt creations, they are so cute!

According to my mom , it took awhile to make these, but then she’s such a dear, she made 4 sets since there are 4 kiddos! (I know, one is missing from the pic, she kept it to show a friend.)


Here’s a close up of one of the sets:


The pattern comes with bread, ham, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes (oh the dreaded tomatoes! From what I hear these took the longest, but just take a look at them, they’re adorable!), chocolate chip cookies, pickles, an orange, and a sweet little bag to put it all in!

And look at that cute little orange, we joked that it looked like a pumpkin, and when my 3 year old was ‘fixing me lunch’ the other day, I asked for an orange, and she said “Oh, it looks like I’m out of oranges, but you can have this punkin!” Needless to say I had a little chuckle.


Here are some more fun felt tutorials to aid in your newly found obsession:

    these are so cute and will last forever versus the plastic stuff you buy in the store, not to add the felt food is so much cuter!

    I love them! I do sort of the same thing accept I crochet toy foods.. my daughter has fruits and vegies, little cakes, a burger with fries, cups of cocoa with chocolate chip cookies etc. She loves them! Hand made toys are always the best!

    How hard are these things to make. I have sewn very little in my life. But these things looks so cool, I want to start making them. I would have to buy a sewing machine. So are these going to be impossible for a novice? Am I going to need a big expensive sewing machine, or will a crafting one work?

    I'm going to be breaking down soon and making these, I just know it. And yes, I've said that on every one of these posts…..

    Actually, they aren’t that hard, just time consuming. These were all done by HAND, so you don’t need a sewing machine. It’s a blanket stitch, you can search it for tutorials, but it’s in the directions to I think.

    Brodie: Hi, so far we're just making them for fun, but I'll pass the note onto my mom and see if she's interested in selling some. Let me know if you're serious!
