Time Flies...

Can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post.

I have busy .. my first born turned 4 recently. We decided to have a birthday party and that means mummy gets to do some crafty stuff *grins*.

Remember the obsession Lil' Miss had with the penguin called Pororo?  That obsession became the theme for the party.

First, there was a Fishing Area. The characters in the cartoon would go and fish in the icy lake.. and thus this became the party pack.

I sewed some inexpensive blue chinese brocade like fabric into fish shapes and attached a ribbon at the opening. Each fish was 'stuffed' with some balloons, a toy car, a cute paper clip and some chocolates..

I'm still kicking myself for not taking more pictures.. but juggling with work, 2 kids and trying to churn out these babies.. photo taking kinda took a back seat.

Anyways, 20 fish later, they were all put into a basin with some packing styrofoam. We had 2 balloon sticks that were converted into 'fishing rods'.

come and get me..
The next station was a bakery. Loopy, the pink beaver in the series loves to bake cute cakes.. and so this was a spin on that. Each cake slice was made of felt.. and it had an opening to so you could put stuff into it.
See the strawberries and cream on top? .. They're interchangeable :) ... It's stuck on with Velcro.. so the kids could play 'decorate' the cake.

Care to have a slice?
I can't leave out Loopy right?.. So I cut her out of felt, and used a Sharpie to outline. Hot glued on features like eyes, nose, mouth, ears and tum (all cut out from felt too) Once Loopy was done, she was double sided taped onto an easel that we had.

Felt flowers with the rough side of a Velcro stuck at the back became the item to 'pin' on Loopy.

Help me pin my flowers
The party would not have been complete without the main character, Pororo. So I got to take a walk back memory lane and did somne papier mache. After it was done, I hot glued felt of different colors to create...

 Is that all? you say.. the final piece de resistance
Here's looking at you, kid.
The Pororo cake. Basic butter cake with chocolate chips and covered with fondant.

Phew.. boy am I tired.. but I have so much more to do before my upcoming trip..
