Play Food Sandwich

3 Jul

This knitted play food sandwich is great for teddy bear picnics and general role-play. If you added sewn facial features, such as eyes and a mouth, then it would also fit a kawaii theme. You will need DK yarn, in various colours, and size 4 mm (US: 6) knitting needles.

Assemble your knitted play food sandwich, using the photo for guidance, by placing the triangular filling on one half of the bread piece and tuck the tomato and pickle pieces between the filling and the bread. Sew them in place with the same yarn colour as the bread piece. Next, fold the bread piece in half and sew it into place.

Sew small beads or lines to bread piece, to look like seeded bread e.g. granary. Use a different colour for the filling piece e.g. pink (ham). Vary the colour of the tomato and pickle pieces e.g. both red (tomatoes) or cream (onions). Make 6 tomato/pickle pieces in green and arrange 3 on each side (curled lettuce).
