Felt strawberry tutorial and hand made cord.

I thought it was about time I did a strawberry tutorial......
I actually put this felt strawberry tutorial together a couple of years ago but I forgot to post it on here, it also includes a section showing how to make hand made cord.
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.  

Materials required:

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!
