Le Petit Marché

It’s up!  It works!  I stuffed all the little pockets with food while she was sleeping and the first thing she did was take every single item out.  I thought it would be super cute if I stitched pictures of the food items in felt on the front but then I thought that might be limiting.  I was toying with the idea of using clothes pegs to clip pictures and prices to the front of the pockets but maybe I’ll just let Chase lead the way on that one.  She’s still too little to be really interested in that aspect of it anyway.

You can see it’s still a work in progress.  I haven’t stitched down all of the letters.  I’ll probably make a few more adjustments before I do.  And then I need to make some more food.    This was my inspiration.  I wanted the bins to hold the food without needing to devote a lot of floor space to another big toy.  Saving 100 bucks isn’t bad either.  I mostly used the leftover felt from the popcorn costume.  I’m going to try to finish it up this weekend and then really put it through the paces to see how it holds up.
