I was recently tasked with the job of creating a fake ice cream cone to use as a prop for our local Fire Prevention Week Program. A friend suggested I use a felt food pattern. Curious, I searched the term “felt food” on Pinterest and was instantly fasinated. I am awed by the fun and level of detail involved in these little sewing projects. I didn’t have any felt on hand, so I decided to make my first ice cream out of fleece. Where fleece dosen’t hold it’s shape as well as felt, it still turned our rather well. I think it looks delicious.
I loved this project so much that I’m already planning to make a bananna, cookies, cake, sandwiches, fruits and veggies to use as props in future shows. If your interested in making your own felt food, here are 2 links to places with collections of patterns and tutorials:
Happy Sewing! 🙂
