Happy Easter!

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb,  taking the spices they had prepared. And they found  the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold,  two  men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were  frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.” Luke 24:1-6 (ESV)

My chicks were made using this tutorial.

Have a happy Easter!

Easter Bunny

A little bunny as Easter approaches, made using the instructions here (with slightly different ears). It’s a quick little project and a good use of these socks I recently bought that are too small for my little man’s feet.

Less than 3 weeks until Easter!

Play food

I know you’ve requested food art of another kind, but I want to share a recent project – felt food.

There aren’t many duplicates because I was enjoying creating new things too much to repeat the same design, so perhaps I’ll re-visit felt food later on so each food isn’t so lonely. As usual with a project, I spent 2 weeks obsessively sewing and then decided I had to stop so I could do other productive things – my projects get a lot of attention for a short-lived time.

I didn’t use any patterns but just took some inspiration from a couple of tutorials and lots of pictures, then cut freehand and stitched. This approach resulted in an oversized mushroom, an apple with a disproportionately large stalk and a stumpy corn but generally they turned out well. And kids have good imaginations anyway, right? So if you’re interested in making some felt food or seeing some more, there is plenty around. Here’s where my inspiration is from:

Banana and corn: Just stuff

Burger (inspired by a sandwich pattern): Myrtle & Eunice

Beets: Cut Out and Keep

Strawberries: ikat bag

That was enough to give me some basics to create my own but if you’d like more there are long lists of links to more tutorials here and here.
