Felt Food Fridays

It's time for another Felt Food Friday! (I hope you aren't getting sick of these, reader. I have a few more things I still want to create...) Well, this one is more of a felt food container - the picnic basket. I got a basic tutorial here and just altered it a bit. I've never been great at following patterns, so this kind of evolved. I think I like my top better, just because I think it will be a bit sturdier. I sewed a whole top side down (plus a little extra) so that kiddo can't destroy the opening. It's not that he is the destructive sort, it's just that boys have a hard time being "gentle." Anyway, I filled it with some other goodies that I previously made. Enjoy! (I made Tim be my hand model. Didn't he do a swell job?!? Almost Seinfeld worthy.)

Well, I figure if you read this far down the post, you deserve a bit of honesty. I HATED doing this project. I almost quit... hmm... about 4 times. I feel like the whole thing is a bit of a Monet. It took me TWO weeks to finish because I just kept putting it off and cussing at it. I finally finished this monster last night after Project Runway and instead of feeling wonderful and accomplished, I just wanted to drop kick it across the room. Maybe it was pregnancy HORRORmones or the fact that I can't let Oz play with it any time soon because he attacked it with his tiny fingers and tried to pull some of the weaving out (yeah, I almost had a nervous breakdown when he did that because I was several hours into the project). Little punk. Anyway, if you decide to attempt this jive, approach it with caution. You have been warned.
