This is (also) a craft blog!


My last craft obsession? Felt food! Everything started when a young lady came to the jewelry shop, where I've been working for a couple of years, wich is also a craft lab, wishing to learn to make felt food, something I had in mind; but using the crochet hooks, since I love amigurumis.
Anyway, I took a look in the Internet, and...another craft obsession took possess of my hands!
Then, there is a friend of mine...She is an artist of the pastries, those real, yummy and beautiful biscuits and cakes,  that you can see here.
Then, some weeks ago, I went to see an exhibit (by the way it was Alexander Calder's) and at the museum shop, I spotted a white ceramic tray, make right like the ones in cardboard...Ta daaa! Since I cannot make pastries like her, I can make some felt cake or something like that, to thank her for sending me from time to time her biscuits.
It was fun to learn to make the cream dollops and the strawberries!. 
So, here there are my first and second (but not last!) attempt to felt food...
Wish to learn to make whipped cream dollops? Here:

Oh they look so well done!!!
I used to make those felt "dollops" for little biscuit gems :) They are cute!

Your work at this jewellery shop / craft lab sounds really fun.

Happy holidays!!!

To be honest, I thought those were real when I first looked. So I was expecting some sort of a sophisticated recipe to follow :) Yummy! Thank's for dropping by Juanita, am bringing my disk to the company to repair finally today.. I guess all I have left to do is keep praying for my pictures...

Yummy! I love the little felt strawberries & whipped cream swirls. I too had to click on the photos to see that they weren't real food :D Happy New Year!!
