little chef gift set

Over the weekend, we went to a birthday party a tiny chef who loves his play kitchen.  It was the perfect excuse to delve into an old addiction: felt food!

I'd almost forgotten how much I enjoy making felt food.  It is so cute, not to mention pretty fast to make, so it is a very satisfying craft.   I also threw in a pint-sized oven mitt, made with the pattern from the blog, ikat bag.

The ravioli box and personalized label were made on my Silhouette Cameo (I used the Pizza Box shape for the box).


 Originally, I only planned on making ravioli, but then I got a little carried away.  Bacon and eggs, anyone?


Of course, a birthday boy needs a slice of birthday cake.  I loosely followed a pattern from the book, Big Little Felt Universe, for the cake slice and birthday candle.


Want to hear about my new love?  Wool-blend felt.  It's the best.  Okay, 100% wool felt is actually the best, but the blended stuff is pretty great, too.  A friend got me hooked on Prairie Point Junction, and I think they have some of the best prices around for their wool-blend felt (and they are not sponsoring me to say that!).  It comes in the most beautiful colors (I especially like the Bitty Bundle colorways) and feels dreamy.  Sign up for their newsletter, and you'll get a 20% off coupon.  :)


Hope you are having a happy Monday!

SO CUTE! I just ordered the Felt Universe book and I cannot wait to get started! FIY American Felt and Craft also carries a ton of wool blend felt.

Maybe I am a little sheltered, but the thought of making felt food just never occurred to me. What a superb and easy idea! :)

What a great birthday idea, I have a party coming up for a little boy who also has a play kitchen. Perfect timing for my still half asleep brain!

Looks very tasty... I'm sure the birthday boy will get a lot of enjoyment out of that gift! Love the cute box, with personalised label - there's nothing like those little touches, to make a gift really special.
