One day while perusing various doll themed sites, I came across an idea that I fell in love with: a Crock Pot for my dolls. I am almost as in love with my Crock Pot as I am my Kitchen Aid mixer, I actually have 3 in different sizes that I use for cooking different things, and I would be willing to bet that at least once a week, something is cooked in one of them. I’ve even been known to have two going at the same time! It was a relatively easy project, I completed it in about an hour, give or take a few minutes. A nice project to work on while I watched golf, and yes, there was even something cooking in one too! 😉
Here’s my take on it:
I did make a few changes to the initial tutorial. I added 4 furniture buttons to the bottom to raise it up, all of mine have this. I also added a knob on the front for adjusting the temperature. And lastly, I made mine red. That was the most complicated part, the tutorial included a printing download, but it resulted in a gray crockpot, and I really had my heart set on red. So, I went directly to the Crock Pot website, copied their logo and then resized it and made it transparent for printing purposes. Yay! Printed it on red cardstock, and I was ready to go.
Now I just need to figure out what the girls can cook in it. Maybe hot dogs with sauerkraut? A chicken? I guess I need to get them some Crock Pot friendly groceries!
