Strawberry & Carrot

The last of the felt food. Sad to say goodbye, but glad to welcome room for new exciting posts! Besides, it's been awhile since I made these for Christmas gifts, so it is about time I get these things finished up on my blog!

Here is the final product. It is made about the same way the carrot is below. Except the green top is simply stitch onto the top. The carrot top is a little different.


Cut the felt the size you would like it to be. Remember you are going to be stitching the edges you cut together so you might have to experiment with size and shape. After cutting the shape you want it to be, stitch the sides together to make a cone shape. Leave the thread hanging on the top- you will use it later.  Depending on what kind of stitch you chose, you can turn your carrot inside out so the stitching in not visible. Stuff with anything you wish. I used extra felt pieces and thread pieces. Stuff until it is as firm as you would like it to be. Take your thread- that one I told you to leave hanging- and stitch around the top. Pull the thread tight to bring in the top. Before securing the top stick strips of green felt into the top. Run a few stitches through those to secure them. Finally knot off the top. 

Finished product!

Note: I did all the felt food with hand stitching because that was the look I was going for. It would be just as simple if not easier to do with a sewing machine for some items of food.
