Felt Food Giveaway… and Our New Etsy Shop!

It’s our one year blogiversary! To celebrate, I thought we would revisit one of our first craft posts from the archive, do a fun giveaway, and open a new Etsy shop! We have been very busy around here!

One of the first crafts I ever posted at Frugal Family Fun Blog was for a felt ravioli play set. They are so simple, and yet the girls still enjoy playing with the set I made.
This afternoon, I added a felt bow tie pasta set to their felt food collection. It was a big hit, and the girls spent many hours immersed in their own world of pretend play! In case you don’t have time to sew, I listed a couple of these in our new Etsy shop. I thought they would make perfect stocking stuffers!
Now the fun part, I thought you might want one of these fun felt pasta sets for your little one too! One lucky reader will win a handmade felt bow tie and felt ravioli play set!
To enter for your chance to win, leave a comment on this post (be sure to leave your email address in the comments field). Become a follower of Frugal Family Fun Blog or subscribe to our feed, and you’re in for three more entries! Just leave a comment that you subscribe/follow.
Giveaway ends Saturday, November 7th @ 6:30pm EST, and winner will be selected by random.org and contacted via email for shipping information.
Good luck!!

    Valerie, I get you via my email!

    I am going to buy pinking shears today and do this project at home. I think we already have some felt, and if not, I needed pinking shears, and it will only be a dollar or so more for the felt. What a great craft idea!

    Thanks, again….

  39. I love it! You're so creative!

    Tell Mark that's hardly any leaves in the background and you should let them pile up until you can rake a big spiral or maze in them for fun for the kids. πŸ™‚
