Anyhoo, as I was boxing it up, Alexa said, "Wait, I need to say goodbye!" I started cracking up. "Goodbye to what?", I said through my laughter. She said, "the felt food." So I guess that's a good sign.
As I was creating it, I would show the girls, to get their opinions, but I never let them play with it, since it was a gift for Kyra. So here's the last few items....
A box of chinese noodles, an eggroll and a fortune cookies. These are kind of lame. I'll have to work on improving them. I just bought the take-out box at the craft store to make it more fun.
Then I made this Teatime Tray. This is one of Alexa's favorites. I bought a wooden tray from the craft store, left it unfinished and lined it with sparkly white felt that I cut down to size. Then I put a gold doily in the center. I attached some small artificial flowers at two of the corners for a feminine touch. On the tray are 5 "cookies with icing and sprinkles on them", all different shapes. And then in the little bag are felt "teabags". I tried to make them the right size for a child's sized teacup. So simple, but Alexa was really excited about this.
And last but not least is this apron. I just bought a premade "blank" , child sized apron and decorated it with fabric pens. (Alexa might like one of these, too).
So, now that I've completed my niece's felt food collection, I really need to start on Alexa's. Shhhh. I am so pleased to be able to create something that my daughter is now requesting for Christmas. That's a first for me.
Have a wonderful weekend. I'll be back as soon as I can, to keep you updated on our Homemade Christmas. Hope you are having a blessed Advent!
