Felt Food: Hot Dog bun
September 8, 2010
It has been a while since I crafted the biggest amount of felt food toys for my girls. If I remember well , I made them for Christmas, about two years ago.
My daughters really enjoy playing with them and the toys lasted unbelievably long enough to still “exist” :D.
Anyways, they asked me if I could craft a hot-dog bun, so they could play making “hodari” (the Finnish word for hot-dog) with the sausage I made previously for a breakfast toy set.
I had a few problems developing the bun.. I mean, it is much easier to make a bread first and then sew a sausage that would “fit” in the bread, not the other way round.. and I was trying to make something that reminds them the hot-dog we make here. After some trials, I ended up with this result.
Not completely happy about getting the bun, my oldest daughter added “how about the ketchup? And the cucumber relish?”. O_O I couldn´t think about any other way to craft a relish , so I crocheted it adding beads to depict the mustard seeds and little pieces of cucumber. And you might be asking.. what is that brownish thing together with the ketchup.. it is Finnish mustard. It is brown .. not yellow.
Well.. I think it came out quite acceptable .. what do you think? ^_^
