I like to think I am not obsessive, but I do have my weaknesses. One thing I have been consistently working on for quite some time is felt food. While there are a lot of different kinds of felt food out there it seems pretty homogeneous, not a lot of cultural flair (although I have seen some sushi which looks great). As a result I have been focusing on Aussie favourites!
Not surprisingly, most of my creations have been on the sweet side as can be seen here. My latest creation, however (just finished this morning) is my homage to the Aussie sausage sizzle, with onions and sauce of course!
One of the reasons I think I keep coming back to felt food as a project is that felt is so easy to work with and it's fun to try and figure out how to bring the food to life. How to do the sauce on the sausage puzzled me for a bit on this one. Then in talking with a friend we had the same thought at the same time of how to do it. I had to borrow my daughter's knitting Nancy (much to her chagrin) to make it, but I think it really adds to the texture of the piece.
So now I am on to the next one. I was thinking maybe fairy bread, a meat pie, or a dim sim? Any other suggestions of some Aussie favourites for me to try?
