I'm making a car shaped cake for our nephew's first birthday next Saturday. I want to do a sculpted cake not a car shaped pan. Any suggestions, photos would be great. Should I use black frosting for the windows or some sort of candy (fruit roll-ups?).
Here are some dresses I made for our daughter a few months ago. I've never gotten around to posting them, so here they are. I'm so glad I didn't have to put buttons on both sides. Let me know what you think? I'm planning a lot more as spring approaches. the back of the other side this one is denim on one side and here are the action shots
This is the first slice of bread I've made. I used 8 layers of low-loft batting (what I had on hand). I'm going to fluff it up in the dryer a little bit. What do you think? Is the hand stitched closure okay?
Do you think these would sell? Or are most parents okay with made in China plastic play food? If you think people would buy, what would you charge? 1. Pizza (4 quarters) crust, sauce, cheese, pepperoni 2. Pasta - raviolli or bow-tie, sauce, meatballs 3. Sandwich - bread, cheese, ham, lettuce, tomato, pickles 4. PBJ Sandwich - bread, peanut butter, grape jelly, strawberry jelly 5. Salad - lettuce, spinach, carrots, tomatoes 6. Breakfast - pancakes, over easy egg, bacon 7. Fruit - apple slices, orange slices, banana slices, & strawberries
This is a fundraiser so I want to make sure they'll sell before I start making them.
Also, should I make kid sized aprons, chef's hats, and pot holders to sell as well?
I've been making leg warmers for my daughter out of women's knee high socks, using the foot part to make the bottom cuff. Recently, however I've seen some advertised as having no inside seams. Does anyone know how this is done? If so, please explain. If you've made them this way, please post photos. Thanks so much!!
I'm making animal bean bags. Basically, a square body with stuffed head, legs, and tail sewn into the side seams. They also have a fully lined pocket that velcros at the tail end. The bean bag is separate and inserts into this pocket. The bodies are about 5 inches square. They have no facial features for safety reasons and to encourage creativity. These are the designs I'm making now cat, dog, bunny, bear, monkey, and lion. I'm planning on selling them in 2 different sets: pets and wild animals. I saw that regular square bean bags can go for around $12-$15 for three on etsy. So... What would you price these at?
The Adoption Ministry at our church is having a fundraiser. They've asked me to put together items for a table. The fundraiser will include arts & crafts, baked goods, & yard sale type items. It will be on March 1st, so I have a little under 1 month. Here are my questions. Below is a list of things I'm planning on making. Please, give advice as to: How many to make? What price to sell? I have about $50 dollars to spend and about 2 hours a day to craft. Also, I'd like the table to loook full, but to sell out by the end of the day. Oh, & should I lower prices or group items together as the day goes on (like a yard sale) or keep my prices the same.
1. Baby/Kid Leg warmers - the kind made from women's knee high socks
2. Tag blankets - fleece on both sides, about 12 inches square
3. Felt food kits - Pizza (crust, sauce, cheese, pepperoni) & Pasta (raviolli or bow-tie, sauce, meatballs) also how should I keep the kits together, I don't want to spend my supply money on bags, but think ziplocs could be tacky, opinions please.
4. Animal bean bags - square fabric bodies with stuffed head, legs, and tails attached at sides, velcro closed at tail side with removable bean bag inside (can be taken out for washing). I have six designs (dog, cat, bunny, monkey, lion, & bear - should I sell in groups of 3 (pets & wild animals) or groups of 6?
