Felt Grocery Shopping...

My daughter, Sienna, received a lot of play grocery toys for her 3rd Birthday. So, my kids have been having fun playing grocery store and house lately. Today I made a couple of things out of felt to add to her collection. I have been seeing the cutest little felt tea bags on Etsy, etc... Here is a really cute tutorial for felt tea bags. I made my own version ( I even put some real mint tea bags inside, so they would smell good). I also made a brown felt "paper" bag to hold all of their groceries! Felt-o-rama blog has a great list of felt food tutorials. You have to check out this cute Roll-up Kitchen Playmat Tutorial.

All of these projects were sewn on my machine using a simple strait stitch. I am a still learning (teaching myself) to sew on a machine. These were so easy to make. Also, all of the felt that I used was recycled eco-felt that I won from favorite felt must check it out!

Nice work! Glad to see that you're putting that felt to good use :) You'll be an expert with that sewing machine in no time - just like you are with polymer clay!
