Just finished this cross stitch project that’s now hanging in my kitchen. As they say in the ‘hood, “ Stop Hating, Start Baking”. If you want one of your own, you can buy the pattern on etsy at https://www.etsy.com/listing/181591669/stop-hating-start-baking-cross-stitch?ref=shop_home_active_1
After working my way through making felt afternoon tea treats and drinks, fruits and veggies, and sushi, I finished off with crafting felt doughnuts and a gorgeous cake. Felt patterns are for sale at Ume Crafts (http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/home/umecrafts).

Sometimes food doesn’t have to be edible to be amazing. Ume Crafts (http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/home/umecrafts) sells some adorable patterns for making food from felt. I made some sweets and and drinks for a play-time afternoon tea. Everything was sewn by hand using every day craft felt and polyfill stuffing. The patterns are quite detailed, and as you can see below, the coffee drinks are even topped with milk “foam” and the hot chocolate has mini marshmallows.
