Another thing I have been meaning to make for ages is Fabric Strawberries. I'm sure I have seen lots on t'internet... but I decided to follow this pattern from Embroideroo.
Again I have used red fleece and also made one out of normal fabric.... just to see how it turned out. I found the fleece lent itself very well as it has a little more give in it to shape itself to a strawberry. The fabric one turned out well too, but the fleece is very tactile.
Attaching the felt leaves gave me an opportunity to use my hot glue gun, and I was rather pleased with the result, although I could do with a bit more practice with the gluing and rolling up the stem without getting the glue all over my fingers and everywhere else. I am still toying with making some more and adding some embroidered pips to the fleece version.
I am a wife and mother of 2 grown up childen, part time employee, aadministrator and self employed Karaoke host. I enjoy crafting, karaoke and many other things.
I'm a big Bon Jovi fan and have been to many BJ gigs in the UK and one in Amsterdam. I have also seen many other artists in concert.
My other big love is Karaoke. I just love a Karaoke night out, whether I'm, hosting it or just attending. Yes I sing (sometimes reasonably well, othertimes badly). My party Piece is There's A Guy Works Down The Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis.
