Farmer's Market

Thanks to Ana White and her free and easy to follow farmer's market plans, we made Grace one of her own for her 2nd birthday. Of course, my husband took liberties with the design and made Grace's market bigger. Bigger is better right? That is, unless you have to fill it with fake foods :)


When we gave Grace her market, I had made roughly 40 felt fruits and veggies AND it barely made a dent. I swore I would never make another fake food again.  Never say never, right?


Along came my blog and the need to create posts SO I got to work making more fake foods and documenting the process. 


Believe it or not, I still have a few more I heart fake food tutorials on my list to complete.


In the end, I guess I don't mind that I have been the sole worker in my 'I heart fake food' sweat shop, since Grace loves her one of a kind farmer's market.

  6. You know you can't blame it on the blog when you *already* made felt fruits and vegetables, right?

    I love the market, we are on play kitchen, play food overload, and now my son just takes our real pots and pans and spatulas from the kitchen. Apparently he *needs* it. It goes something like this, "I need the red spatula, Stop stirring the eggs, I need it for my play kitchen restaurant to make soup".

    1. Brittney, thank you so much for your very sweet much appreciated comment. I made all the felt fruit and veggies when I had about 18 followers so to hear that they are appreciated and being used really makes all that hard work worthwhile. Thank you so much!
