Felt food: Carrot

Felt food: Carrot

Luonnonvoima ( my oldest daughter ) has been complaining that the old toy carrots I crafted many years ago had gone bad. One was thrown away, the other, pieces went missing. The fact I used a thin type of felt might have aggravated the deterioration from use.

I remember I sewed them to my first daughter when she was still very small and when I got my second daughter, one of those carrots was her favorite teething toy. You can imagine now how bad looking they were. ^_^

This week their favorite play has been “let’s pretend to have a restaurant”. They wrote menus in papers and ask all the time what we would like to have. And of course, I was sent to make a new toy carrot XD.

I had few problems sewing the velcro circles, even if they had a sticky self-adhesive side I reinforced the bond by sewing with thread. The worse was still to come… When I showed the carrot to Luonnonvoima, she simply smiled and said that it wasn’t complete since it didn’t have the leaf stalk part to be cut away too.. O_o

Eh, kids are really into details aren’t they?

    Excellent! Just what the stew needed! We have the same cutaways but all in plastic; not nearly so sweet..

      Sometimes I find myself wondering if it is worth the trouble to handmade those as I could buy them ready (and cheaper)… Of course I enjoy making the toys, maybe that’s all what matters! ^_^
      Thank you for your kind comment Sheri!
