Anybody for afternoon tea??
As my daughter Lulu is always busy playing with her kitchen, coming and taking our orders and feeding her teddies I decided to make her some felt toys. There are some fabulous patterns especially in the Japanese craft books. I bought a few patterns from Fairyfox on Etsy too.
In fact this pattern is one of hers. They are very easy to make once you figure things out. The only thing is I think the pretend cups of tea could be a little larger. Maybe down the track I'll remake them. I love the biscuits they're so realistic they just look like you could just take a bite! Once I finished all the pieces I bought a balsa wood box, covered and lined it with felt, decorated it so now it is the perfect biscuit box! I have a few more patterns to make up which I'll slowly get round to. I've also made up 9 blocks for a new quilt so stay tuned! More images on flickr.
