My mom called me shortly before Christmas to ask me to make an apron for my beautiful niece Ari, who likes to help her Nana bake cookies in the kitchen. I ended up making Ari and her Nana matching aprons and hats, which can be seen here:
Just for fun, I also included some felt play food for Ari, even though she's a bit young for it. You can see it here: Matching Aprons & Chef Hats for Nana & Niece
At the last minute I decided that Ari clearly needed some felt play food to go with her new hat and apron, so I whipped up these all up in a single evening!
Breakfast goodies including pancakes with butter and syrup, sausages, bacon, and eggs over easy:
And since I had a bunch of purple and orange felt too, an eggplant and some carrots. (Which Ari will probably help mom grow in the garden this year too!)
When I told my brother I knew that Ari might be too young for the felt food he said she actually seemed to understand immedietly that it was NOT supposed to go into her mouth. Instead she holds it up and says "Nom, nom, nom", then holds it up for Nana, and is not satified until Nana "noms" on it too. She evidently also likes to put it in her new toy grocery cart and push it around. I'm clearly going to need to make more of these things...
Oh, and a big thanks goes out to Pinkleo
for giving me all that felt last year in Craftster's 12 Days of Christmas Swap! It was a life saver to have so much of it around when doing this at the last minute!
