Last night I finished my peas and made some fortune cookies. I was given the take out container with some cookies inside and thought it would be great to hold some fortune cookies for Aubrey to play with. The cookies were by far the easiest of the felt foods to make!
Cut out circle ( I used an individual yogurt cup), fold in half and sew the curved edges together. You can include a felt or paper piece sticking out for the fortune. Then fold in half and stitch to hold in place. That's it!
For the peas, I cut out two pea shell pieces and stitched all around leaving an opening for the peas. To make the peas I cut out circles then baste stitched around the edge of the circle and cinched to form a little ball. I glued the peas in the pod.
I also finished my quiet book. I have had all materials for a long time and delayed it, wondering if Aubrey was too big for it, but I decided she wasn't and I could always add or replace pages with more challenging subjects. I used the stiff felt for the pages, and regular cheap felt for the shapes.
I had found all these page inspirations online and forgot that I had also saved the actual templates - so I did it the hard way, from eye. I should have used the templates. They are here.

and of course a felt board doll with clothes.
