From here on out, the felt food may be in a somewhat random order. Sorry about that. I wanted to do sandwiches next starting with sliced bread...but when I made the sliced bread, I didn't take very good pictures...so I need to make some more before I can do a tutorial for it. Hopefully I'll get that done soon.
So I we'll start with some of the sandwich fillings first, and hopefully by the time we get through them, I'll have some bread to show you. :)
We did shredded cheese a while ago for our pizza, but sliced cheese is better for sandwiches. Swiss cheese, of course, looks really cool, so I made some of that. Then I realized that my kids have never really eaten swiss cheese because we're mostly a cheddar and monterrey jack kind of family, so I made some cheddar cheese as well.
These are one of those things that you really don't need me to tell you how to do them...but I'll go ahead anyway.
Materials: Cream and/or gold felt, and all the regular sewing stuff
For the cheddar cheese, first I cut out squares of felt. I used my slice of bread to get an idea of how big I wanted it to be.
I didn't use a straight edge or ruler or anything I just cut. I cut out both sides, but I found my self wishing a bit, I'd used my normal trick of cutting out just one side, sewing it, and then cutting out the second side. I sewed it with a very small seam allowance.
The swiss cheese is the same, but I cut out a few semi-circles of slightly different sizes from a few of the edges before I sewed the sides together.
Once I had the edges of the swiss cheese sewn, I sewed several circles of different sizes in the middle of the slice. I didn't mark them or anything. I just sewed them freehand.
After I'd sewed the circles, I cut the holes out of the insides.
