Starbucks Felt Breakfast Quiet Book Page

Edit: Updated photos here.

I wanted a food page in Jax’s quiet book, because he is so into his play kitchen. Since I already did a Starbucks page, I decided to make the food page go along with the same theme.

Nothing too fancy here. Just a lot of food and a plate to play on. You could add silverware too. I didn’t because he would just try to put the food on a felt fork and end up dropping everything on the plane. I made so much food, I had to make two “pastry bags” to hold it!

Here’s what I used: dark green background felt (because I couldn’t find any more of the same brown I’d used on the Starbucks page), felt (in white, yellow, orange-yellow, green, tan, cream, natural, pink and light brown), batting/stuffing, pinking shears and embroidery floss to match.

   

Mini Birthday Cake Donut: Make white French knots as sprinkles on the pink frosting. Sew the frosting to the donut top. Roll a strip of batting into a ring and sew it between the two halves. Banana: Roll a strip of batting into a tube and sew it between the two banana pieces. Using one strand of dark brown thread and a sharp needle, take your peel pieces and run the thread up through the felt as if the felt was made of two layers and you were going between them. Every now and then, come out of the felt and loop back to make a random stitch on the surface, then go back into the felt. Do this to make all the subtle, dotted lines that form on banana peels. Sew the two sides of the peel onto the banana halfway. You could add snaps or Velcro if you wanted the peel to stay closed.

Egg: Sew the yolk down with a bit of batting. Sew the two sides together. Bacon: Cut wavy pink stripes to fit your bacon and sew two on to each side. Sew the two halves of each piece of bacon together. Cheese: I made cheese and an English muffin so you can build a breakfast sandwich. Simply sew the two cheese halves together. English Muffin: Sew the darker circles to the muffin bottoms to make the crust, then sew the two sides together with a thin layer of batting.

Pumpkin Scone: Take a piece of embroidery thread and knot the end. Come up from the back of the icing and lay the thread out in a squiggle as you’d like to have the decorative icing to look. Go back down throughout the felt, being careful not to disturb your squiggle. Make a series of couching stitches all along the squiggle to hold it in place. Sew the icing to the top of the scone, then sew the two halves together with some batting in between.

Pastry Bags: Decide if you need one or two bags. If you make all of the food, you need two! Sew the stars to the green circles to make the logos, then sew them to the center of the bag pieces. You will be making a pleat in the bottom of each side of the bag, like in the photo to the right. Sew the edge of the bag down until you are an inch from the bottom, then sew through the edge and the fold above it. Sew across the bottom, then through the edge and the fold for an in, then up the edge to the top. Leave the top open for a pocket.

   

Plate: Sew the plate down to the background then pin the stitch template to the center. Stitch around the template with gray thread to make the plate edge.

I’ll be sewing this page into the quiet book beside the Starbucks drink page. The logos tie together and you can dunk the donut in the tea or put the strawberries on the plate.

 

If you use this pattern, please add a comment or link to me. I really would love to see your version! Jax loves these pages and had a meltdown after I finished taking pictures and put it away. His favorites are the banana and strawberries (neither of which he likes to eat in real life, silly boy!)

Here is an update on this page.

      I’ve seen some for sale on Etsy. They can be pricy because they are time consuming to make. But there are cute ones out there. I could feature some links in an upcoming post…

    I found your quiet book ideas on pinterest and am sooo going to use your patterns to make a book for my granddaughter for Christmas (I realize I may be biting off more Than I can chew to try and get it done in just a couple months). Could you tell me how you attached a finished page to the actual book(did you sew each page onto a backer page like another layer of felt? Also, how did you cover the book once you finished and assembled it? You did an amazing job! Thanks for any additional info you can provide! Terry

      I am planning to do a post about how I am making the finished pages. I certainly have a pile waiting for me!

      Basically, I take two squares of flannel, bigger than my pages, and zigzag stitch a page down to each square. I sew the squares together, right sides facing, around 3 sides. Turn it right side out and slip a square of batting in it. I press the fourth side in and top stitch all the way around the edge. I add two grommets on one side and it’s done!

        Thanks for the quick response! You may get a kick out of this– I spent 3 hours today between Joanns and Michaels buying all the fun supplies to get started on this project! I’m soo excited! Felt was on sale! I’m going to keep checking to see when you post your finished pages. Thanks again for sharing :-) Terry

          Oooh felt sale! I may have to go stock up on the colors I am out of.

          I’m torn between making a mail page next or a car/city page. Hrm…

            Ohh, a mail page! I’d love to see that :-) little ones always love getting mail so having their own mailbox could be so fun.

    Everytime I try to print the Starbucks breakfast page it comes out with both pages on one. The second page prints on top of the first.
