Anzac Day and Felt Food

As part of our Anzac day activities the kids and I made Anzac biscuits using a friend's family recipe - yummy! I've been working on another batch of Anzac biscuits - felt ones!

I have become a little bit obsessed with felt food. It's so easy to make and it's a great project to bring along when I know there will be wait time (e.g. swimming lessons, doctors appointments). In researching felt food on the internet I have been struck though by how homogenized it is - I haven't seen much that takes into account some of our Aussie favorites, hence my attempt to make Anzac biscuits and pavlova...

and tim tams...

and lamingtons...

Are you sensing a theme here? Why is it that desserts/sweets make the best felt food? OK, I have made a salad sandwich which is a little generic, but I did put beetroot on it:)

If you are thinking about making felt food there is lots of help and inspiration on the internet here and here  and a flickr pool here. I also just read a  review of a new book  (haven't see the actual book) called Big Little Felt Universe at Feeling Stitchy that looks like it has lots of great info. Cyndy
