The found the fabulous sandwich pattern on pinterest and it is from the lovely Tania of Myrtle & Eunice so if you want to make one of your own you can find the tutorial here where there is a link to the templates. She also has a full tutorial to follow too.
I will show you what I have done with mine.....
I followed the original instructions .....I didn't have a thick foam though so I cut 3 pieces of thin wadding for each piece of bread. Also I didn't have a long enough piece of felt for the crust strips so had to cut two strips and join them together.
I used 3 strands of brown floss and started blanket stitching a crust onto one side of the bread...
Then start stitching on the other side of the bread.....
I cut 2 pieces instead of one because my felt is acrylic and a bit thin and I could just see the kids having tug of war over it and the cheese coming off second best. So I used blanket stitch and stitched the 2 pieces together including the inside of the holes and now it child ready!
LETTUCEDitto with the lettuce I cut two pieces and used running stitch for the detail and then blanket stitched the 2 pieces together. Here is the front....
This one is nice and easy and a great one to start with with if you are new to hand sewing.
There is no pattern for this as such. Use your lettuce size as a guide and freehand an egg shape onto card, cut and trace 2 egg whites onto white felt and then just cut a circle of yellow felt.
Next just blanket or whip stitch this onto the second egg white...done!
I followed the original instructions sort of...I just cut two piece of felt for each tomato slice and cheated by only stitching the segment detail onto one side.....
Then put all your bits together and you have a scrummy sandwich!
Next up I am going to make a felt sandwich bag to keep all the pieces together. Then after that it will be biscuits and cupcakes. I have just under a month to get it all done plus overhaul the picnic basket itself and make all tablecloth and napkins etc
Hmmmm if only there were 8 days in a week!
