This is just a comparison picture with dark red and normal red felt. It’s really up to you which colour you prefer

3CherryStem

  • With the brown, cut out a thin strip of brown (not so thin that it will break)
  • and near the end, tie a knot – this is the stem
  • If you later find that it’s too long, you can always trim it.
  • If you have brown string , do the same thing.

4AttachingStem

  • On the dark red felt, cut out a circle
  • Mark the centre and make a small cut
  • Place the brown felt / string through the hole

5Completed

  • Attach the stem to the red felt¬†
  • Use a running stitch on the outside edge
  • Pull and close in the edges
  • Adding stuffing and close the ‘entrance’

And it’s completed ! ^^

[Felt Crafts] # 4 – Blueberries

Hello Hello !

More fruit tutorials :D
This time, the Blueberry

————

Materials

Materials

  • Dark blue felt
  • Light blue felt
  • Stuffing
  • Dark coloured thread (I’ll be using a light colour for the sake of this tutorial)
  • Glue ( Can be anything, preferably something that dries quick. i.e super or hot glue)
  • A circular object

2BasicShape

  • Trace a circle onto paper, and use that as the template for the blueberry
  • On the dark blue felt , cut out the circle
  • Using the light blue felt, cut out a small circle
  • Fold your felt into half horizontally and then vertically. This will give you the approximate centre point
  • Using the centre point as a guide, cut an ” x ” shape
  • Then glue the light blue circle on top – do not put any glue where it will meet the cross.¬†
  • Use a running stitch around the outside of the dark blue circle

3Completed

  • Pull the thread to close in the edges and add stuffing
  • Knot the thread off and cut off excess thread

And that’s it ! Easyeasy right ?
