I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving
(if you are in the US) and a nice and relaxing
weekend afterwards. I didn't do anything special
for Thanksgiving but I had a quite bit of fun
with Black Friday deals at some local and online
shops. I love bargains. I can't resist anything like
20% off everything PLUS free shipping kinda thing.
I bought lots of necessities at Joann like batting,
threads, and interfacing, and snatched lots of
ecospun felt from Fabric.com.
Speaking of felt, I have been really crazy about
making things with felt these days. Making felt
food was one of the million things I've wanted to
try out for a while. After sewing the popsicle block,
I was feeling like making more yummy stuff, and
I found myself spending hours browsing felt food
online. Oh my goodness felt has such possibilities!
The food in the picture is some typical stuff for
Japanese bento box: rice balls with seaweed around them,
fried shrimp, meat loaf, and lettuce. I made all these
using this great tutorial by manimani mamagoto.
I will make some eggs, brocolli, and other stuff
to complete my bento set! yay!
The cool thing about these is this TINY size!
This is such an easy, quick, and
frugal project. You can even do this while
laying down in bed.(I did! lol) I have been
making these using standard acrylic felt
and found that it makes too much mess.
I did some research on felt and found that
ecospun felt might be a better choice, so
I can't wait to experiment with ecospun felt.
I bought this felt sweets last year for Joe's
niece Sarah's Christmas gift and was so pleased
with how happy she was with them. She wants more
now. Maybe I will make some dessert for her this year.
Handmade stuff is always better and they look
so easy to make! I am excited.. hehe!
Thank you for stopping by :)
