Fruit & Veg Fashion – The Met Ball at your kitchen table
Don’t let the coronavirus lockdown drive you crazy… let’s get creative!
Here are some fun ideas for things to do with the kids for a few hours (anything to get them off their devices).
All you need are some fruit, vegetables, seeds & herbs that you have in the kitchen or garden.
I provide drawings of the models that you can download as a PDF (see below). Just print & start designing.

The first steps of creating the red cabbage jumpsuit… If you are using sharp knives please be careful 🙂
Let your imagination run wild!
Feathered fennel skirt with snow pea bodice.
My 14-year-old daughter loved designing these; Brussel sprout gown with pea bangle & fennel earrings, & a red cabbage ballerina dress.
Some other designs below from my 11-year-old Annabel, now these did make me chuckle. It just shows how different their personalities are.
