All things here I’ve made from felt. I love working with it… so colourful and fun. And it doesn’t fray! I have several bins now full of felt foods and related objects… and I have yet to have a kid visit me who didn’t enjoy some time with it.
The laptop went to live with my friend Ben. I must really thinking about making another one for myself.
The Banana Garden
A compllete gardening experience, with rows of rich soil (pool noodles covered in brown felt, but rich soil sounds better), a variety of plantable veggies with roots…. lettuce, peas, mushrooms, carrots, beets, green onions, and a nice big strawberry plant. Everything is harvestable, too… most things just pull out with roots intact, tho the berries and peas are attached with velcro and can be attached and reattached a million times. Oh… and there is a watering can too.
It’s BBQ season!

No party is complete without a few of these at the table. They especially like birthdays.
I like the birch logs, but the marshmallows are cool too. I used real sticks and covered them in felt… nice to hold. I inserted a magnet in the ends of the sticks and did the same with the marshmallows so they have “gradability”… this is not a real word, but serves the purpose. The s’mores are there for those who are true campers.
Fresh Fruit and Vegetables
A box of tea for our felt food bin ( and yes, it looks like a washing machine, but sometimes these things just happen.)
