I've put my Villain and Damsel up for sale on Etsy. These guys were in Stuffed Magazine Volume 2. See more pics and measurements here.

Finished adding the details to daughter's crown. I just need to add some elastic for a strap. Now here's hoping she keeps it on her head. We might have to do some practicing before we get our pictures take.

I had a very productive weekend. I finished my daughter's Halloween costume today also. All I have to do is add the zipper. I'm waiting till we go to have pictures taken before I add it. My luck I'd put it in and in the next 4 weeks she'd go through some crazy growth spurt.

I used Simplicity pattern 4024 and used the Glenda the Good Witch pattern. There is no pattern in a toddler size for Queen of Hearts so I just made it up. The hardest part was figuring out the cutaway opening that shows the black and yellow stripes. Piecing this together was also time consuming. It's actually sewn into the side seems, so it's not really a skirt on top of another skirt. I also made a black tulle skirt for underneath that fills out the skirt.
Cant's wait for Halloween.


DING. Cookies are done. Sugar cookies measure 2 1/4" across and the chocolate cookies measure 3" across. For now this is the last of the felt food. Need to get back to Halloween stuff.

Here's my latest batch of stuffed food for my daughter for xmas. We'll be starting the kitchen stove and sink pretty soon. Just ordered a stainless steel 10"x12" steam table pan that will be the sink. Can't wait to get it. That kind of determines the size and placement of everything.

So I pretty much have breakfast, lunch, and dinner covered. I've also got a pile of veggies and a pile of fruit. I think I'm pretty much done. I do plan on making some cookies and make a cookie sheet out of thin ply wood painted silver. I thought the cookies would go great with the little tea set she'll be getting for xmas.

Sandwich with 2 slices of bread, lettuce (2), slice of cheese, 2 tomatoes, and what I'm calling salami or mystery lunch meet. Bread made out of fleece, everything else made from wool felt.

2 apples, 2 pears, 2 oranges, 1 banana, 1 lime, and 1 lemon. All made from fleece except the stems, leaves, and banana peel which are made from wool felt.

Pizza that fits together like a puzzle. Peppers, pepperonis, and mushrooms are wool felt. The rest is made from fleece.

Turkey! Drumsticks are attached with velcro. I've got a wood dowel rod inside the bone of the leg for stability. All made of fleece.
