strawberry love

The resistance was futile! Seeing all the wonderful strawberry pincushions popping up on Flickr and IG over the last few days made it impossible for me not to give these little beauties a try.


And try I did. I made nine!!! strawberry pincushions over the weekend. Nine!!! I simply could not stop.


Larger strawberries are based on this tutorial. I didn't follow the instructions for the leaves, though. I just cut out my own shapes out of wool felt and stitched them to the strawberries. It took a few tries, but I'm happy with the way they turned out.


I used this tutorial to make my smaller strawberries. Aren't they the sweetest? I decided to stitch little polka dotty bows (got them at Joann's) next to their ribbon stems.


I'm thinking I have enough strawberry pincushions for now ?!?!?!

How was your weekend? Hope you had fun. Svetlana

  6. What sweet pincushions! The Briar Rose fabric is so perfect and of course the (is it?) Sugar Flower. I like how you did the leaves and polka dot bows. The bows are a cute touch!
