Instructables
My kids love playing with their little toy kitchen and have some fake food to go with it.  Most of it is plastic.

I had some scraps of felted sweaters left over from some other projects, and I figured I should start making them some softer play food.


You will need:

some kind of felt
foam or other stuffing
needle
thread
scissors

Step 1: Make the filling

I had some scraps of foam from another project, so I used one to cut a wedge shape for the piece of pie.

I wrapped the orange felt around the wedge, making sure it covered the sides and the top of the wedge.  I trimmed them, leaving a little excess to make sure no foam would show through after the crust was attached.

I stitched the point of the wedge, then turned the felt right side out and sewed it to the foam.

Step 2: Attach the crust

I cut a piece of off white felt to fit the bottom and back of the pie, with a little excess at the top edge of the back to fold down for the crust.

I folded down the edge of the back and stitched the crust to the filling.  When the crust was all attached, I sewed a couple stitches at one side of the back crust where it sticks up above the pie, pushed it through the crust a little bit, pulling tight, and sewed another couple stitches.  I did that along the back to make the crust slightly puckered.  You can see me pulling the thread tight in the second to last picture to gather the crust a bit and make it wavy/puckered to resemble real pie crust.
Great Idea - so cute!

Excuse me, waiter? There's lint on my pie.

That is so cute! I always wanted fake food when I was younger! What a great way to make it. The whipped topping is so adorable!
