Felt Food: Pancakes Anyone?

My foray into felt food continues with another breakfast classic- pancakes!

I seriously love pancakes. On weekends The Mister makes really good pancakes, and these felt versions have me wishing it was the weekend already.

And you can't have pancakes them without some syrup, right?

A pat of butter too, ok.

Or maybe a few strawberries. Yum! (More on those berries later.)

The pancakes were pretty easy to make: For each cake I used two ivory circles and two light tan circles (cut about a 1/4 inch smaller than the ivory). First I whipstitched the tan circles to the ivory. Then I placed the ivory circles together (with the tan circles facing out) and sandwiched a thin piece of batting between them. The ivory circles get whipstitched together to finish the whole thing. Before you know it you have a nice little stack of pancakes!

Eventually I might try my hand at making my personal favorite- blueberry pancakes. But for now I have a lot of food to make before Christmas (not to mention the fact that the craft store was very low on the two colors required to make pancakes) so I'll have to move on to something else.

Besides, I think these pancakes, and the eggs I made the other day, could both use some bacon to keep them company. 


  1. I was thinking "where's the bacon?", too! I'm not the biggest fan of pancakes but appreciate how life-like these are. I can't wait to see what you do for lunch/dinner food. Hamburgers with lettuce & tomato, anyone?!

    1. Lol- I know it just needs bacon! I'd love to have hamburgers... I just need to figure out how to make the rolls.

  2. Whatever the inspiration - it is quite clear that you are having fun letting your imagination go wild!!! Pamcakes are quite real looking = at least in the photo - had me fooled for a minute!!!

    Can't wait to see what else you come up with!

    1. Thanks- fooling your eye for a second with the photo is the greatest compliment you could have given me Pam! I am having a lot more fun than I thought I would making felt food. I just might have found my sewing niche!
