Thus, when I saw this kitchen in one of the issues, I knew I was going to make one.
I was casually in search of two identical boxes of similar size, but hadn't made any effort to find them when one day, while heading into the dining hall, I saw an abundance of just delivered boxes that were just the right size! I found the woman in charge of the shipping room and
It was a process that I worked on a little bit at a time. Sometimes Sierra helped, sometimes I worked on it by myself. I ran out of colored duct tape because I used it to secure shelves inside the oven as well as border all the edges of the boxes, so we had a stall when we had to get more tape. I didn't have nearly the number of plastic caps to use as knobs as the article suggested, so I just bought some inexpensive wooden cabinet knobs and drew on them with a fine tip sharpie to make the knobs on the stove and oven. I made the paper plate burners twice because the first time I free-handed them and they were just too sloppy for my sometimes-a-touch-anal-retentive self. The sink is just a big salad bowl that Sierra picked out at the dollar store.
I like how it turned out.
The cupcakes are done. Would you like one?
I can't take credit for the cupcakes. My mom sewed those, along with two aprons, one for Sierra and one for a friend.
I did, however, recently take my first foray into felt food. A girl needs something to cook if she has a kitchen, right?
I started with a strawberry. At first, I was going to use thread to make little seeds, but then decided it was overkill.
Then I tried a fried egg. The yolk is enormous, but you get the idea.
Sierra wants me to make a banana next.
