felt food

IMG_9804I like to think that I will make my children a present for birthdays and Christmas.  Last year, I made K two little mice from Martha Stewart.  This year, I decided on felt lollipops, sweets and ice-cream.  I drew round some ice-lolly moulds, cut out two pieces, sewed them together, stuck the ice-lolly sticks in and stuffed them.  Ta da!  Ice-cream cones were made from a semi-circle of felt sewed onto a piece of card-board to stiffen them then simply stuck together into a cone shape.  Large pompoms make ice-cream.  Sweets I simply made from two strips of felt glued and rolled up.  (I could have sewn where I used glue but I was making this late at night before K’s birthday.)  IMG_9438

We also bought Kirsten a cash register.  So we were all set for a play shop.  Beads wrapped in tissue paper, plasticine lollipops, bars of chocolate (wooden bricks wrapped in foil and paper wrappers) and some cupcakes we already had completed the stock.  Buttons seem to make the best money.  A bag for shopping and “What would you like from my shop today, Mrs Bey?” (That’s what my kids say when we’re playing shops.)SONY DSC

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
