Making American Girl Doll Utensils

About this time one year ago, I was a desperate mother frantically scouring eBay to find American Doll sized utensils to use in a Christmas gift for my daughter. I knew I need spoons and forks to coordinate with some of the homemade doll food I was crafting, and I was disappointed to find such a limited and expensive selection available for retail.

Well,  for all those other mothers (or doll moms) in a similar predicament, I HAVE A SOLUTION!
