I've had way too much time without my husband lately as he's been finishing up repairing and cleaning our old house. While watching way too many episodes of Downton Abbey I made this:
To make your own, gather your felt, scissors, and pattern and get crafting!
- free pattern
- felt (2 in any color, 1 silver, 1 light brown, 1 dark brown, 1 red, 1 white, and 1 black)
- embroidery floss to match all the felt
- tapestry needle
- stick-on numbers
- plastic canvas
- hot glue gun and glue
1- Print pattern.
2- Cut out the large circle in silver felt and lightly glue it to the *any* color felt.
3- Cut out another large circle in light brown felt (crust).
4- In the red felt, cut out a squiggly circle a bit smaller than the crust.
5- Cut out the small circle in the white felt (cheese).
6- Use the felt glue to lightly tack down all the pieces: light brown, red, and then white.
7- Cut out the pie piece templates and use them to divide the pizza into six pieces. It helps to mark the pizza with a pen or sewing pencil before you try to cut it.
8- Use the same piece templates to mark out six slices on the pie pan.
9- Stitch the sauce to the crust in red, and the cheese to the crust in white.
10- Cut out 21 pieces of meat in dark brown with the templates. If you're not a meat-eating family, you can make the pieces into tomatoes or something else.
11- Stitch the meat onto the pizza slices as follows: six on one piece, five on another, four, then three, two, and one.
12- Stitch the pie pan onto the main felt and stitch the guidelines to mark out the six pieces.
13- Add felt numbers to the pie pan, either in numerical order or randomly.
14- Stitch the numbers down (which is a complete pain) to add some security to them.
15- Add velcro to the pie pan and pizza slices.
16- Make a sandwich with the pie pan felt piece, the plastic canvas, and another piece of felt. I hot glued them together in certain places to make them easier to sew.
17- Cut the black felt into strips long-wise.
18- Sew the strips over the edges of the "felt sandwich" like binding.
19- Attach all the pieces to the pie pan.
