would you like fries with that?

To all the vegetarians out there; look away…

I couldn’t help but make a hamburger for Sadie’s kitchen. She only recently started liking hamburgers, but only at In ‘n Out. (YUMM) Everyone has their opinion on their burgers. Rory is not a fan. (and yet I still married him…)

For those of you who don’t have one of those nearby, I am truly, heartfeltfully, sorry.


Anyways, this was pretty simple felt food to make, mostly circles sewn and stuffed…I did some french knots on the top of the burger bun for the sesame seeds…haha! love it.


My FAVORITE part is the grill marks! agh! I sewed some 1/4 inch strips of black felt to my brown circle first. easy peasy, but so flippin’ cute.

I haven’t quite figured out how to make french fries yet, but this hamburger needs some fries by its side. It’s lonely. So lonely…

Maybe I need some fries. (yummy…with ranch dip)….


Well, what’s this?
A french fry tutorial?! wow. It came from out of nowhere!

sah-weet!

For these fat-free, carb-free (taste-free), french fries, you’ll need:

cream colored felt
matching or white thread
fabric glue
rotary blade and quilting ruler are very handy

Cut your felt into strips 3/4 inch x 9 inches

Fold in thirds, about three inches per section.

Using your fabric glue (or hot glue would work too), dab a thin strip of glue in between the layers..make sure to stay away from the edges, as you’ll sew them later.

If you look REEEALY closely, you can see the glue.

smoosh together! The glue is to keep the layers from shifting too much while you sew them together.

Trim the edges of your “fries” so that they are angled. Don’t they look like cute steak fries?


Then, sew around the edges with a 1/8 inch seam. tada!


You have some adorable french fries.


Not complete without a bag!
