Fabric Strawberries (Pin Cushions!)
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.
