For my part in this exchange I was put to the task of making an assortment of play food for her daughter's imaginative play. My girls play with their kitchen and play food absolutely every day, without fail, so I was excited to provide that outlet for creativity for someone else's little girl. It was a fun excuse to try out a few things I haven't done before and I made a few old favorites as well.
The only downside is that now my girls are expecting me to make them every piece that they didn't already have in their own kitchen. I suppose that isn't a horrible problem to have. As long as they still love mama-made creations I'm beyond happy to make for them. Though they'll have to wait a bit to give my hands just a bit of a break. All this crochet and hand sewing is hard on my hands after a while.
I really had to keep a close eye on these donuts to make sure they didn't disappear while I wasn't looking.
They were probably the favorite around here and I know they'll be the very first thing I remake. I also made a couple small stacks of pancakes. One traditional set and one with strawberry syrup as that's a new favorite topping around here.
Aren't the little fresh strawberries adorable? I also got to work with my new favorite crafting supplies, needle felting. I am having so much fun with it so I wanted to try a couple of felted fried eggs instead of the normal felt eggs I usually make. These were so much fun and are the perfect completion to a pretend breakfast.
I also made an assortment of crochet and felt fruits and veggies to complete the set.
The pattern for these lovely mushrooms were on Ravelry - the little brown topped ones from here and the other from this pattern. They were so much fun!
The grapes were a special request and I was happy to give them a try. I think they turned out pretty fantastic even if I do have to say so myself. Really it would be hard to pick a favorite and so many of these were new ideas so it really kept the project fresh and interesting. I hope she has as much fun pretending and playing as I was able to have creating for her.
