Felt Food and a Birthday

My friend's daughter turned 2 last week, Santa brought her a play kitchen and she absolutely loves it so I decided to make her some felt food.

I looked for tutorials but ended up just winging it.  If you google felt food you will find a ton of pictures and how-to's.  I had planned on having a few other food items in the collection but Grant not going to sleep until after 10 and not napping during the day, I had very little time to sew.  I ended up with 2 Pop Tarts, 2 chocolate chip cookies, 2 fried eggs 2 heart shaped sugar cookies, 1 round sugar cookie, and 3 doughnuts.  For the round cookies and doughnuts I did use a small bowl for a template to cut the circles, other than that it was all free handed. I think they turned out cute and I really hope she loves them.

Light Posting

Posting around the Homemade house has been extra light the last few weeks, sorry about that.  What is the reason you ask?  Let me give you my list of excuses:
1. Myself, my husband and our little man have all been battling colds since we moved up north.
2. The job hunt has taken over our lives and by the end of the day I am exhausted and the thought of getting on my computer makes me physically ill.
3. All my craft supplies are in various boxes in a room in my mom's basement, and every box looks exactly the same, and piled to the ceiling.  The chances of me finding everything, slim to none.
4. My wonderful son has decided naps are unnecessary as well as going to bed before 10pm.  Which means he is extremely cranky!

Despite my excuses my friend's daughter's birthday is the 21st of this month and I really want to make her gift.  Santa brought her a kitchen set and she absolutely loves it so I immediately thought she needs an apron, chef's hat and some felt food.  So hopefully I will be able to find my fabric and felt and get started, especially since the 21st is coming fast.

Kayli's Recipe Box

My sister got engaged over Christmas and has been trying to learn how to cook.  I decided to use my Cricut and crafting skills and made a recipe box, coupon holder, and a basket full of sauces, spices, and seasonings.

I bought the box at Hobby Lobby for about $3 with a 40%off coupon.  I used Mod Podge to adhere scrapbook paper around the outside as well as the ribbon.  I used my Cricut and the From My Kitchen Cartridge to cut out the word Recipes as well as the recipe dividers shown below.

I cut the dividers at approximately 3.5 inches and decided to leave them blank so Kayli could decide how she wanted to organize the recipes.

When thinking back to being young and starting out I remembered how expensive sauces, seasonings, and spices were and decided to collect some in a basket and add that to her gift.

Sophie's Doll

I had a few Christmas gifts I didn't get to post before the holiday one being Sophie's first doll.

I'm so excited with how she turned out.  I had originally cut out a plaid fabric for her dress and blond hair but just wasn't feeling it.  So glad now I changed my mind.  I used the Jean pattern from Bit of Whimsy.  I have to say I've gotten so much use out of my patterns they were well worth my money.

We Have Arrived

We have arrived and are somewhat settled in our home.  The move was a long one and I'm so glad it is over.  I have no desire to ever move across states again.  I have a friend who has done it multiple times and I have no clue how she does it, I think I would go crazy.

I have a few posts coming up of Christmas gifts I finished last minute before the move and just hadn't gotten the chance to show them to everyone. Unfortunately with the job hunt going full speed I have not even had the time to load the pictures to my laptop so I guess you will just have to be in suspense for a day or two more (I know it's killing you, lol).

I hope everyone had a happy New Year's, and sticks to those resolutions!
