Ever since I read about the Bainbridge Island group that meets once a month, picks a topic, makes that topic and then exchanges at the next meeting, I’ve desperately been wanting to do that too. I’ve also been desperately wanting to join some knit-alongs. It’s just more doing this with someone else!
Lo and behold, my Mukilteo Yarn Circle friends all want to do a knitalong and swap type thing too. Whee! So our topic fo April is food. I couldn’t be more pleased.
So, of course, one goes in search of food. Holy crap there’s a lot out there. Here are a mere sampling of my favorites:
First of all cupcakes.
Colorfool.net has some amazing sewn play food that is just awe inspiring. I don’t have that much fabric to play with, but it’s inspiring, no?
Since one of my true loves is felting, there’s an article on craftzine.com on needle felting fruits and veggies. I have only wet-felted before, not needle felting, so very interested in trying this out. However I can’t get over doing this with the kiddo around. Pointy Sticks of Death are one thing, but barbed needles?? I dunno, this might have to wait a while.
Other bits and bobs (found by Liane): veggie rattles, a knitted donut and other no-nos, these absolutely fabulous knitted pumpkins, and last but not least, I think this sushi is cute but Boo won’t know what the hell it is, then again he doesn’t know what a hamburger is either and I’m totally making one of those!
And then Etsy always has fun and interesting things to look at.
That’s all I got right now. First up are cupcakes, particularly since I have a ridiculous amount of that furry stuff in the stash. I have a sewn hamburger/veggieburger in mind too. Beyond that? Fruits and veggies, I suppose.. the possibilities are endless! And I’m so glad I have friends to share it with!
