peanut butter jelly time
March 9th, 2011
Mollie from Wild Olive guest posted recently on Whip Up and shared a tutorial for a peanut butter jelly game. I'd never heard of the game before, but thought it was hilarious and immediately set to making it. My felt supply consists of forest green and hot pink for some reason, so I turned to prints instead. I grabbed whatever was cute and vaguely peanut butter jelly-y. Gingham bread? why not? Psychedelic jelly? shit yeah.
I used her patterns, but sewed two pieces right side facing instead, then topstitched all around because I will do anything to get out of hand sewing. It was more work then if I had used felt, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. And the kids like it! And they can play the game all by themselves, though they usually end up fighting. But pretty much any activity ends in a fight these days, so it's not the game's fault.
If you make the peanut butter jelly game, keep in mind that you will never get the song out of your head. ever. Don't say I didn't warn you. Because you guys had such fantastic toy suggestions, maybe you know of good games too? Because candy land is killing me.
