Fe, Fi, Faux Food!

Did I say that I would show you the fleece food TOMORROW? I meant I'd show you in FOUR DAYS! (haha!) I have been SO busy trying to get Christmas gifts made, or doing holiday shopping so that I wouldn't have to do so much last minute stuff, that I didn't have a chance to sit my hiney down & show off my newest project! it is! My washable fleece foods! I am giving a set to my 3 year old niece & a set to my 3 & 5 year old girls. I had to bring a set out today for the photo shoot, so my girls saw it for the first time. I told them it was for their cousin. They loved it sooooo much & they wanted to play with it right away & Pazely even said, "That is so cool that Ellie gets this!" It just tickled me because I am excited to give them THEIRS on Christmas morning--& they have no clue! Zoey even said, "Aw mom, will you make me one?"
So, of course a set of faux food is not complete without sweets--my cupcake & 2 sugar cookies. I really could have gone crazy making more & more & more & more food, but I had to find a stopping point. I figure as birthdays or other holidays approach I can add fleece food installments to add to their collection.
A couple slices of apples---Granny Smith & Golden Delicious. I didn't do a red apple slice. I may still do one for their set.

Peanut Butter & Jelly! My 3 year old daughter's favorite meal. These slices of bread were the hardest thing to make of the whole set. But the splats of peanut butter & jelly were the easiest!
Catch of the day! Kind of a boring one.
Three large ravioli's. I tried to do a "sauce" for these, but everything I tried to make looked silly. As if fake ravioli's isn't silly enough. My favorite! It IS a rather tall burger, but it looks so cool! Complete with char grill marks on the burger & hand-sewn sesame seeds on the bun. The lettuce was the most fun thing to make in the set.

My mom loves this egg. The yolk is the perfect color! I never thought I'd say this, but "What a cute egg!"
A stack of three pancakes, topped with two pats of butter. This was a higher quality fleece that I bought--more expensive. It is more fuzzy & thick.

I've been having discussions with my niece about Christmas & presents & I have found out that she is a pink freak--like her auntie! I was originally going to package her items in some super cute boxes I got at Old Navy (of all places?), but realized I had this pink bag (that I showed before), made from a placemat. So, I'll stuff her set of food in there, along with a tiny pot holder, oven mitt, chef's hat & apron that I will embellish with cupcakes. (I've yet to convert her to become a cupcake lover. Pink + cupcakes=we'll be twins!)
This is one of the boxes that I got at Old Navy. Don't adjust your screen--it is the brightest pink & orange I have ever seen. The other box I got is like a black & white hounds-tooth print. My girls may fight over this ONE, so I got TWO... just in case.
I had to show you the cutest little 1" pins/buttons I got while out shopping last week in the mall (gag, gag, I hate the mall). (They were $1.50 each!) It's a new funky shop called Fuego. On the side of the button is a link to the website where you can see ALL the buttons & other cool stuff!.... There were so many to choose from & I may go back & get some more. Super fun stocking stuffers!
Zoey is my "cowgirl" (She wants to be either a cowgirl who teaches ballet when she grows up or a mommy who rides horses.), & Pazely is my "cutie pie". My Auntie Beth is getting the "biker chick", I got myself the "goofball", I HAD to have the "cup cake" & Mr. WhiMSy love is my "stud muffin".

I finally got my Christmas cards sent yesterday. I sent out 50 Christmas cupcake cards!-- & oh!--tomorrow I'll show you the card my mom sent to her friends & family this year. She asked ME to create a holiday card for her!
I still long & wait for my sweet pink tree to arrive...I LOVE Christmas, but is it wierd that it doesn't feel like Christmas to me without a tree up?
So, that's it! My super long, super photo packed post! I hope you all are crafting away & having fun preparing for the upcoming holiday!
