This was a little project I stumbled across on the internet and IMMEDIATELY had to make.
Luckily my god-daughter was about to turn 2, so I had the perfect opportunity to make it!! I was very pleased with the end result – it’s adorable, and the best part is that you can have a play-kitchen for your kids without having to have huge plastic toys and things taking up all the space in your house… It fits over a kitchen chair so you can just fold it up and put it away when you’re done.
The main base fabric is a soft white denim – it’s lovely and soft and sturdy!
Measuring and cutting out pieces to fit the chair.
Adding the hot plates from some of my African fabric stash.
And more fabric backing for the buttons for the front – the oven knobs!
The oven door is on velcro so it can be opened and closed.
Making the window – I happened to have the perfect fabric for this – deep blue with trees on from the market in Nairobi (I actually have a lovely dress in this fabric, and this was one of the leftover scraps). I didn’t bother adding curtains though, as they would have covered up the lovely window fabric!
Fitting it all together…
All finished and all the binding is on the edges! It even has some nice little pockets for the spoons on the side.
I’m ever so pleased with it, and can report that my god-daughter is pretty chuffed with it too!
In case any of you want to have a go at making one, here are the instructions I used to make it.
