A felt food picnic

So I have finally finished the felt food feast for my son's third birthday which is in five days. I didn't quite get everything done that I wanted to but there is more than enough for a three year to get excited about.


The original plan was to fill this picnic basket...
...which I have cleaned up and added gorgeous oilcloth to the line the bottom of it.

The idea was that I was when we wanted to go on a real picnic we would empty it of his play food and be set to go. It is really huge and heavy though, even the lid and I could just see him shutting his baby sister in there so we now have plan B.....

The Retro Bread bin!....
...this has been in the shed for a while as I have no bench space for it so I was cleaning it up to sell it when Oliver decided he wanted it to put his toys in. So I thought perfect I will fill it with his picnic stuff. So here is what you can fit into a bread bin....

1 x retro tablecloth.....

Assorted vintage duraware cups, saucers and plates + a few laminated doilies...

1 x vintage biscuit tin.....

...filled with felt cupcakes, biscuits and a bun! And a felt liner that took me 2 weeks to make (sorry there won't be a tutorial for this one!)

Here they all are out of the tin...Yum!
I will be posting tutorials for the biscuits and cupcakes in the next few weeks as I promised to make a set for my Son's preschool so I will take photos as I go.

I have also added all the felt food tutorials to a new page on my blog so take a look.

I have made the cupcake cases removeable so you can mix and match!

2 x donuts (find the tutorial here)...

1 x retro orange container to hold the...

.....4 x felt tea bags (find tutorial here).....
...and the 2 donuts fit perfectly on top for storage!

1 x gorgeous hand stitched sandwich bag......
...which holds a felt sandwich perfectly!

You can find the sandwich tutorial here.

Assorted vintage plastic fruit and vegetables that looks incredibly real! I was going to make felt fruit but ran out of time so I was glad to stumble upon these at the op shop and happy to pay $5.

And here it all is squished into the bread bin...
 
....but it looks far better all on display...


I can't wait to have some pretend pininc especially as Summer is definitely on its way out and I will be looking for things to entertain the kiddies over winter.

Only 5 more sleeps until my boy turns 3. I can't wait for him to open this, hopefully I will remember to have the camera close by to record his glee!
