Little Crickets Felt Fun Has Us Dreaming of Pie

With pie on the brain these days (if your calendar's not marked, write down November 13 for Chow Bella's Pie Social and dust off your cookbooks), we couldn't resist sharing a couple slices of sweet dishes that will hold up even in this heat -- they're felted. Buy a pattern to make your own on etsy. Little Crickets Felt Fun also offers patterns for inedible edibles from a sack lunch to a pile of veggies to a birthday cake.
