Talented prop designer Jessica Dance has teamed up with photographer David Sykes to create a line of deceivingly inedible felt foods that come together to create a variety of popular dishes and meals. The photographs are incredibly realistic making the viewer take a second look to really see that that the items are made of string.

Dance uses dozens of colorful pieces of lambswool and a knitting machine to recreate foods such as cheese, bottles of ketchup, tins of mustard, chocolate bars and more explicitly from fabric. The food items are arranged accordingly to look like a real meal that Sykes then photographs. One meal showcases beans on toast served on a felt plate with fabric cutlery, a cup of coffee, ketchup and brown sauce.
