A Felt Cherry Pie and a Baby Outfit

Yesterday, my sister-in-law told me I had to look at Martha Stewarts website and see the felt food they made. So, I did, and I immediately downloaded the template and went to the store and bought all the supplies. I also ended up ordering the templates of a bunch of other foods from the lady that was demonstrating. You can find her site here. Anyway, it was fairly easy, the most time consuming part was a little hand stitching. It's not perfect, but it turned out pretty cute, right? My daughter, Jaci, loves her play kitchen, so I made it for her to play with.

Also, I made this a little while ago for my friend that was having a baby. I didn't want to post it before now just in case she saw it, but...she's in the hospital right now and she just had her baby (yay!) so I think it's safe. I love this little outfit! I found the onsie and I cut it off and added the skirt and then added a band and elastic to the bottom to make a diaper cover. Jane (the baby's mom) said she didn't want too much pink, so I was excited to find this onsie, with only a little pink! Welcome, Halle! We're excited to meet you!

  6. Hi Jill, you don't know me but my name is Paula Knight and I'm a friend of Sheleen Leavitts and just happened to click on this blog. I love the onesie outfit! I am the kind that needs more instruction so I was wondering if you would mind emailing me and tell me step by step how you did it. I have had 4 granddaughters born this year and I would love to make some of these. Thanks so much! pjknight41@gmail.com
