So christmas is almost here, and I don't think I will be making any more handmade presents except for some Play Silks (I will post later about these) but here is what I started making back in October and am now finished most of what I wanted to make for the girls.
I am going to have this present out under the tree unwrapped so they can see it first thing Christmas Morning. I have make some other shapes and seasons that are stored in ziplock bags. The felt board was made by purchasing some felt and stretching and hot gun glueing it around a small painting canvas which I got cheaply at a dollar store.
I grabbed these cute picnic ziplock bags and thought they would be perfect storage from some felt food I have been slowly making over a few months, one piece a night.
pineapple rings, apple slice, orange slice, strawberries,watermelon slice
Lollipops and Biscuits
Eggs, Pancakes with maple syrup, bacon, tomato slice
Pattern found here at Skip to my Lou after I saw some inspiration on Chasing Cheerios
Being Modelled by one of the many dolls we have
I made these just now after feeling guilty that I didn't have many presents for my 2 year old. She doesnt want nor need anything. She loves those doll bottles that have milk or juice in them that look like they are emptying to the dolly. I bought her those for $1.99 and that is all the gift I had her (we have plenty of dolls and don't need anymore) then after seeing the idea on Chasing Cheerios I thought I will add these nappies and wrap up one of the exisiting dolls in our house and now she will have a great present she will love. I am also making the play silks with her in mind and now I don't feel so bad :)
I also have been collecting pom poms, pipecleaners, and lots of crafty bits and sticky tape and glue to be put in a "Creative Box" for the older two girls.
I have plenty of bought presents for the older girls - Swimming Goggles, Tiny Pony collectable things, electric toothbrushes, paper doll cutouts, books, DVD,Hair accesories, make up kit .. they will be spoilt that is for sure :)
