This easy to make Felt Chef's Salad PDF pattern has all sorts of options so everyone can have their favorite toppings--grilled chicken, shrimp, ham and lots of different veggies & salad greens! Top it off with some pretend Ranch Dressing and a few croutons, add a side of bread sticks and you have a great healthy addition to your child's play kitchen! Teaching children healthy eating habits is important and now they can practice what they learn, during play time.
You will receive a PDF pattern only, not the finished items. The extensive 27 page booklet includes full-scale pattern templates--NO ENLARGING NECESSARY, cutting layouts, easy to follow step-by-step instructions with lots of full color photos and a complete materials list so that if you'd like, you can make the set exactly as shown.
All items are designed to be entirely hand sewn. This pattern requires 1/4 yard (9" X 36") of felt for the bowl and one 12" X 18" sheet for the dressing bottle. The rest can be made using 9" X 12" felt sheets and small remnants. The project is suitable for intermediate or confident beginning sewists. One-on-one assistance is always available if you have questions about any part of the process.
I use wool blend felt for all of my designs and I highly recommend it. Acrylic felt works equally well and is readily found in craft and fabric stores--wool blend is just my personal choice. If you have difficulty sourcing any of the materials--I realize some US sewing terms may be unfamiliar to non-US sewists--please email me for recommendations or clarification.
This pattern is copyright protected and may not be copied, redistributed or resold. I encourage you to use this pattern to create items for sale and it would be great if you would credit me as the designer and link back to this page. Items may not be mass produced.
This item requires a PDF viewer and prints best on 8 1/2 X 11 letter paper but every effort has been made to assure it prints equally well on A4 paper.

Wife, Mom, Grandmother and designer of fun toys!
I live in the Pacific Northwest region of the USA and have been sewing for more than 45 years and designing my own patterns since 2011. All of my designs are tested for the "fun factor" by the people who matter most--kids! If children like the toys, the patterns themselves are tested and perfected until they meet my exacting standards. Only then are they made available to the public. Questions and comments are always welcome.
