I thought it was about time I did a strawberry tutorial......
The beads are slightly different to the top photo, I used Mill Hill beads in this tutorial and gold headed pins for the picture at the top, I cut the pins a couple of millimetres near the top and glued them on.
If you use fabric for the leaves you will need to back the fabric using interfacing or some other fabric stiffener to give it some support.
Felt or fabric
Stranded embroidery thread for cord
Matching coloured thread for attaching beads
Mill Hill beads
Polyester fibre fill
Draw a circle, I used my needle case which measured 2.5 inches or 6.5 cms in diameter.
Cut in half and just use one side
I would love to see photos of your finished strawberries using this tutorial.
Happy strawberry making!
