Play pizza restaurant in a box

WOW. It has been a LONG time since I have posted! My husband and I moved over labor day, and we have been spending time getting our new house around ( and getting ready for the baby, who will make his/her appearance sometime around Halloween)
Well my darling niece Audrey is turning 4 this weekend, and since I made a Homemade detective kit  present for her brother for his birthday, I wanted to make a special birthday present for her as well.
Before this project, my sewing history was sewing a few buttons.  I have always had a phobia of sewing.  I think its because sewing machines scare me a little bit.  ( I did not use a sewing machine for this)
I looked online at felt pizza pictures. I did not follow a pattern for this.  After I got the hang of sewing these, It became easier and self explanatory.  ( I’m not a left brainer, a pattern wouldn’t help me much anyway)
The toppings that I made for the Audrey’s pizza are Green peppers, basil, mushrooms, onions, black olives and pepperoni.
The peppers by far took the longest!
I also found these ” restaurant checks” at Wal Mart.  I thought these would be fun to help Audrey play restaurant.
I might of gotten a little carried away… ( my crafts often do get carried away) .  I had extra felt left over. I made breadsticks and cookies for Audrey’s restrauant as well.  I also just purchased 1/2 yard of fabric for Audrey to use as a table cloth in her restaurant.
I also made up menus. Here is a picture of the printed Menu.
I placed all the toppings into little bags, and put them into the box that I decorated.  I am going to send this in the mail.
Hopefully she will like it!! I am no longer afraid of sewing!! My mom thinks I need to try to use a ” sewing machine” next!

    LOVE this!! So cute. I'm like you, love crafts but I'm not a sewing person. I just inherited a sewing machine, though, so I guess that may change.

    I'm doing a meme on Tuesdays @ Tiny Blessings where I'm asking people to link up to a great gift idea… I'd love it if you'd stop by next week and link this post up! :)

    Absolutely darling! And so is your Felt Hot Chocolate Kit. I haven’t crafted much since my daughter was born either (Nov 2010) but you’ve really inspired me! Thanks so much for sharing!
