We gave Serene a play kitchen for her birthday (on which I'll do a separate post soon). My favorite part about preparing her gift was making play food to supplement the kitchen accessories she received. I decided to sew play versions of some fruits and veggies not included in her produce set. I was inspired by the stuffed strawberries in dear Ruby's book, so I went off that to make strawberries, along with broccoli florets, turnips, an ear of corn, spinach leaves, mushrooms, and a watermelon slice out of felt, fabric scraps, and polyfil. I love the sweet quirkiness and uniqueness the fabric scraps add to the pretend food. I experimented with dimensions and patterns for each softie; there were plenty of mess-ups before coming up with the end products. Thankfully, Serene seems to be enchanted by the results as much as I am. I'm thinking about whipping up other pretend eats Serene loves but doesn't yet have for her play kitchen, perhaps for Christmas.


Thank you kindly for taking time to comment. We truly appreciate each and every one!
