1  Patchwork Play Strawberries in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by po on: April 12, 2008 05:31:25 PM
I've been working on some felt foods for my daughters upcoming birthday (using this wonderful post as inspiration: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222947.msg2407971#msg2407971) and I had a brain burst whilst sewing some slices of bread. What about combining quilting and fabric food? Hence, these patchwork strawberries. I started with some random bits of coordinating fabrics (some vintage some new) and just started sewing them together. When I had them all sewn together I cute the whole piece into strips and re-sewed them back together, mixing up the orientation, then I repeated that process a few times to get a patchwork square. I then cut a circle from the square and cut the circle in half. Then, sewing the two flat sides of the semi-circle together formed a cone. A little stuffing and then some gathering created the strawberry shape. A little felt cap and a string stem topped them off. Aside from being great for a kids kitchen, I think these would be super cute on a gift, tree decorations or even just lying about on a shelf. I'm now eyeing my yellow fabrics and thinking some nice summery lemons would be nice...

2  Recyled Crayons in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by po on: April 12, 2008 01:34:07 PM
I saw this awesome idea on this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=235023.0 and thought this would be a great project from my three year old and I to do together. I bought some dollar store crayons, broke them into small bits and had my daughter place them in the muffin tin (which I also picked up at the dollar store). We put them in the oven at 150 degrees for about 25 minutes until the wax had melted. I took them out and swirled the wax with a toothpick and let them cool for about a half an hour in the freezer. They popped out of the tin really easily and I cut them in half so they'd have a good point. There's also an article in the Good Things for Kids magazine by Marthat Stewart. They used a heart shaped tin, which is super cute. It'd be fun to do some different shapes. My daughter loves coloring with these and it was such a fun, easy afternoon project!

Happy Valentines Day! I knit upthe free Mochimochi hearts pattern for my daughters preschool class. I turned them into little pins so they can wear them.  They were so much fun to make and super easy!
