Busy Bag #3: Felt Food

This summer to coincide with our (definitely one, possibly two) epic road trip(s), I am making busy bags for Lucy.  See the others by clicking here.

Background info: Lucy eats the same thing for lunch pretty much every day.  Lunch meat, a slice of cheese, cucumber slices, carrots, a spoonful of sour cream, and some fruit.  Every. day.  It makes life easier for both of us.  She likes eating the occasional peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but that's snack food as far as she's concerned.

[And sometimes when Daddy gets involved it looks like a face.]

Enter busy bag #3 -- felt food play set!


*felt (I have a stash of felt, and I supplemented it for these projects by buying a grab bag of felt on Etsy.)
*embroidery thread
*aforementioned cookie sheet that goes with everything
*aforementioned pencil pouch in which everything goes

Place mat, plate, napkin (looks like the cloth napkins she uses), fork and spoon (pink like her plastic ones), turkey, cheese, grapes, strawberries, cucumbers (or kiwi, I suppose), carrots, a blob of sour cream, two slices of bread, butter, peanut butter, and jelly.  (Whoa the colors are really off... that last blob that goes with the bread is purple.)


And it all folds up into another pencil pouch!

I decided to forgo embroidering a large, intricate portrait of Hercules on the felt plate.  I have a very specific line between worth-the-effort and not-worth-the-effort.  Only I know where it is, but it's there.  Oh, it's there.
