All sewn up!

Finally! I am now ready for testing. The final pieces were sewn up tonight (pizza set and cabbage) after having a few days off from sewing. I was so unsure of the cabbage. I dont want to leaves around the edge to come away during the testing so took a while to figure out the best way to solve this worry, but it happened first try!

Managed to get some clamps after searching for 3 days. I was avoiding the likes of Homebase and B&Q in the hopes of finding them cheaper, but to no aveil, so I caved and brought them in B&Q, and my brother has the required blow torch needed for the flammability testing, so hoping all testing can be completed in the next 3-4 days... exciting times.

Anyway here are the completed veggie and pizza set ready for testing: What do you think? 

Cabbage, carrot, button mushroom, asparagus and a potato
Pizza 1/4 (will be sold in 4's to make a whole pizza)
I love the toppings, but I am so limited as I cannot make them too small otherwise they wont pass the safety tests!

Midnight snack anyone?

Anyone hungry? Just looking at all this food makes me want to eat it, good job it's felt and not the real thing.

With the new felt arriving this morning, and Amara finally tucked up in bed what better way to spend the evening then sew up the sandwich set ready for testing. What do you think? Does it make you hungry too?

Sandwich  testing set

On the left we have a slice of ham, chicken and beef. in the middle is a slice of bread (I only need 1 for testing, the set will of course include 2) and on the right there is a slice of cheese, lettuce leaf, tomato and cucumber slice.


It allows you to create different combos of your favourite fillings... and here is mine, ham salad. I think the testing of these will be rather quick as they are not stuffed, and just layers of felt, so I may even do it tonight, and fill out the paperwork, which should leave me more time to test the fruit set once the clamps have been brought.
