By the creative bug, that is!
I spent most of the weekend cutting and hand sewing felt food. I've had in the back of my mind to create enough things to fill a table at one of the craft fairs that happen in my town throughout the year, or at the farmers market that we have here weekly. I didn't have as much time to devote to making felt creations, as I'm still studying for my holistic nutrition course, along with being a (mostly stay at home) mama and having a part-time job. But now I'm done the first part of my course (and I even completed it early at that!), so I have a little down time.
The kids and I had a nice relaxing weekend at home, with no plans, so I used the times when they played together quietly to fill up my plates with felt food :)
I even made the bacon bendy! The kids got a kick out of it :)
I love how the pizza turned out! Stuffing and hand sewing the crust was more time consuming than I thought it would be. But so worth it! I posted these felt food pics on my personal Facebook account, and a friend of mine is interested in ordering some of these for her kids for Christmas :) I've been also toying with the idea of starting a little Etsy shop, but was too unsure of myself to do so. Now, I'm leaning that way, more and more. What do you think?
These last creations I made a little while back, but just realized I forgot to share them with you, so here goes...
I made Arianne a little lady bug peg person (she wanted it before I got to paint the hair ;). And I couldn't help myself but give her ladybug a matching sleeping bag :) I adore this one!!
And Ashton was so excited to see he had his own astronaut! I still have to make a space sleeping bag for it though. I guess I know what I'm doing today :)
Happy Memorial Day!
