Robot hand & Felt Food

So here's two projects I've been working on:

The first is next page in my Star Wars quiet book.

It's a little robot mitten hand for little people to slip their hands into :)  My husband donated some wire and I chopped up an old cell phone for the real robot bits.

This page marks a big turning point in this project.  From here on out, the pages will be my own design.  I already have the next one underway and it's super cute so far.  I plan on making 3 more to add a bit more to the book.  

Just a hint for the next page, the title is "Rescue Han Solo from the carbonite".

My second project was a birthday present for my neighbor's little girl.

She just turned 2 and had gotten a little kitchen for Christmas.  Her mom was telling me how she didn't want to get wooden food because her daughter is a bit of a thrower, so I thought some felt food would be a good idea!

It was really fun to make and there so many neat ideas out there for food.  I didn't have a pattern.  Just looked at some pictures and gave it a go!  The egg was super easy, the bacon not to bad, but the toast took my two shots to get a decent one.  I think it would have looked better if I would have hand sewn it, but I really didn't want to mess with it.  My favorite part, though, is the jelly on the toast!

I'm considering selling the set on my Etsy store.  & possibly making some more in the future just because it was so much fun to do!  What do you think?
