Felt Food Patterns: bread and jam
I’m very fond of felt and fleece as fabrics, because they are easy to work with and fairly forgiving. I designed this felt bread to fit into the children’s bread pan sold at Ikea when the felt food patterns is printed full scale to fill up an 8.5×11″ sheet of regular paper. You can download my free pattern here.
The loaf of bread can be made using a single square of felt, sold for 20-30 cents in most craft stores. I bought a bag of stuffing for $3, and I barely used any.
You can use the pattern piece for the end of the loaf to make slices of bread (just cut out a 1/2″ strip of felt to sew around the edge) and to make “jam” and “peanut butter” fillings. Yellow rectangles make pretend cheese, and a brown circle works as a hamburger (sew two together and stuff them if you want it to be more realistic).

I sewed everything together using a blanket stitch. Both of my kids love their play food, and I don’t have to worry about lead paint!
Thank you for sharing!
