What child (or inner child) doesn’t love preparing toy food in a play kitchen?
I had a play kitchen when I was a little girl and loved preparing pancakes for myself, my sister and my parents. Now that I’m grown and have a daughter of my own, I want to make her some handcrafted play food so she can enjoy making meals for everyone during play, or while we cook in the kitchen next to her!
Please feel free to use these patterns to create some play food for you and yours! This pattern will make one pancake, one dollop of syrup and one pat of butter. I made two extra pancakes for a stack of three underneath the syrup and butter. You can duplicate it as much as you want to make multiple pieces of each food!
- Pancake patterns (see above)
- Paper scissors
- Light tan felt material
- Dark tan felt material
- Light brown felt material
- Yellow felt material
- Sewing pins
- Sewing scissors
- Sewing needle
- Embroidery floss (light tan, dark tan, light brown and yellow)
- Print out the pancakes pattern I’ve provided, then cut the patterns from the paper.
- Pin the patterns on the appropriate colored felt, then use sewing scissors to cut the felt.
- Thread a sewing needle with yellow embroidery floss and pin the two layers of yellow butter to one layer of the syrup.
- Using a whipstitch, begin sewing around the edges of the butter, attaching it to the syrup, then tie it off underneath the syrup layer.
- Thread a sewing needle with light brown embroidery floss and pin the second brown syrup layer over the stitching on the back of the first.
- Using a whipstitch, begin sewing around the edges of the syrup, concealing the first knot and end knot in between the layers.
- Thread a sewing needle with dark tan embroidery floss and pin each dark tan toasted circle of pancake to a lighter tan larger circle.
- For each half of the pancake, completely sew the darker tan circle onto the lighter tan circle using a whipstitch, then tie it off underneath the lighter tan circle.
- Thread a sewing needle with light tan embroidery floss and pin the two halves of the pancake together with the stitches concealed between the two halves.
- Begin sewing the two halves together with a whipstitch. About 3/4 of the way around the pancake, stop sewing and gently stuff the pancake. Once you’re satisfied with the fullness of the pancake, complete stitching around the pancake and concealing the first knot and end knot in between the layers.
