I had such a blast making my niece’s birthday present! I’m so excited to give it to her tonight for her third birthday.
I bought the Blueberry Waffles pattern from BuggaBugs Etsy shop. This is the second pattern I’ve purchased from her. The first one was for Bakery Sweets that I made for my other niece for her fifth birthday last month. The patterns are reasonably priced and very easy to follow. They include a list of the materials as well as fully coloured instructions.
The picture above is what I made following the pattern and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. The waffle iron opens and closes and the waffles fit nicely inside, just like the real thing! I didn’t make all the fruit – the pattern included strawberries and mandarin oranges in addition to the bananas, peaches, and blueberries. I also modified the bananas so they looked more like slices instead of chunks.
If you are thinking of making felt food check out the rest of the BuggaBug patterns! There are several patterns on my wish list that I hope to make one day for my daughter.
But for now I should probably get wrapping…
UPDATE: This was a great success! My niece loved it as did all the other kids at the party. Even the adults were impressed, especially my soon-to-be-brother-in-law. Haha! The fruit was probably the favourite part. Each of the kids took turns mixing up a “fruit salad” in a Tupperware bowl (part of a gift to the birthday girl from my mom) that just happened to match the blueberries. So cute!
