Sandwich or Needle felted Hanukkah Dreidel?

sandwich?

Hanukkah dreidels are usually made from clay, wood, plastic or metal; I decided to see how one would work made from wool.

yummy

The needle felted sandwich dreidel is made up of many parts (tomato, lettuce, cheese, olive and 2 pieces of bread) balanced on top of each other and sewn together.

The edges of the bread and tomatoes are covered with a strip with felt and sewn to the needle felted shape. The soft fluffy wool of the bread makes the slices feel and look real!

A  low, flat shape shape spins the best (apple slice, sandwich, sufganiyot, egg). I cut a hole in the middle of these shapes and glued a piece of chop stick through the center for spinning.

  1. Hi, do you sell your sandwich that is listed above? I work at the library and I am making storytime kits and thought this would go great with my picnic storytime.
    Please send me an email at seillehcmom@yahoo.com with prices.
    You do wonderful work.
    Thanks
    Christa
