Cooking Mama Costume!!

September 30, 2010 at 8:06 pm (General Crafting, Holidays, Sewing)

Before you read this, be sure to read my earlier post documenting the steps it took to create this!

Forget wanting to “be” Martha Stewart—I want to “be” Cooking Mama!

Who wouldn’t want to be Mama? She can do it all! First she came over and made some killer pot stickers.

But Mama is human, like the rest of us, and we all make mistakes, don’t we? Unfortunately the stove must have been on too high, and she burnt the pot stickers.

She decided to take a whack at a different recipe, and moved onto baking.

Didn’t her chocolate cake come out beautifully?

She was so happy!

Mama is so well rounded. Not only is she wonderful in the kitchen, she works her magic in the garden as well!

But, just like in cooking, not everything goes as planned. Not enough water, I guess 😦

Recently, Mama ventured into the crafting world! She’s tired of her yellow apron, and wanted a nice pink gingham apron to compliment her sparkly kerchief.

She’s such a jokester!

Oh no! I guess the bobbin is in wrong! Mama gets very angry when she has to use that darn seam ripper. (Don’t we all?)
