My sweet niece, Hallie, turned ONE at the end of 2014! But it wasn't until last weekend that we were finally able to celebrate the milestone with pomp and circumstance. I had decided back in September that I wanted to create something really special for her first birthday. After seeing this idea for a stove that fit over a kitchen chair on Pinterest, I decided I would tackle the project. After all, how hard could it be with all those straight angles. Throw in some hand sewn felt food and I was set. Little did I realize how time consuming this would all be...and frustrating to make up all the patterns. Of course, since it was for my one and only niece I kept stitching....including creating an oven mitt and apron to complete the gift. If you are thinking of doing this, my suggestion is just buy your niece a miniature pony or buy a kitchen and felt food from Ikea.
