Apple-ish Playfood…

on June 5, 2014

Well, one of my goals for 2014 is to make my girls a set of play food. I have an awesome book called <a href="Tasty Crochet: A Pantry Full of Patterns for 33 Tasty Treats“> with a ton of fun food patterns. I plan to make them a couple of everything, and started with the apple. Now, my apple came out a lot more rounded than I would have liked and no amount of squishing that filling was putting it in the proper shape. Upon reviewing the directions, I found what I had done wrong. It was a matter of how I sewed the stem on, so easy fix, I may go back one day and redo that part. Until then, my 2 and 3 year olds easily identified the fruit for what it was, so it is good enough for me. And here it is, the first of many handmade play foods I will share with you, my apple-ish…

It's more round than it should be, but still fun for the girls!

Have a happy, hectic, handmade day!
