felt food follow up

here's the rest of my felt vegetables!

they were so fun to make...i blogged about beginning this project here.

all from this book: cute fruit and vegetables made of felt; more info here.

i wove a felt basket for them. i will post a tutorial for how to make the basket later this week, when i am making one for a different project...

i finished these last month, for a gift, and seeing these photos again makes me want to make even more!

These are great! I have this book too, but haven't yet completed anything from it. You did wonderfully with these projects.

Hi! I have this book and was going to get started but I can't figure out if the pattern pieces are full size or if I need to enlarge them. Would you mind telling me what you did? Maybe the food is smaller than I'm picturing? Specifically, I was going to start with the carrot and the pattern pieces seem tiny. Thanks!

the patterns are intended to be used as they are, with no enlargement.

i wondered the same thing when i first started using the book, but after i realized that the felt vegetables are slightly smaller than actual vegetables, i really liked the size and how they turn out.

Thanks! Which makes sense for small children, too. Can't wait to get started this weekend!
