Hi everyone, I have been busy stitching felt strawberries this week, mmmmm do you think they look good enough to eat! I found inspiration to make these from my blogging friend Paulette at Beedeebabee blog here , if you have never been to her blog I urge you to go over a check it out, Paulette makes the most exquisite felt creations! I have seen these strawberries in various forms on lots of blogs and it was always my intention to have a go at making them, but when I saw Paulettes I just could not resist making them right away, they only took a couple of evenings to make, the instructions can be found on Paulettes blog.
As you can see I absolutely love strawberry themes, hence the teaset and matching tray. I decided to make the little bag to match, it is made from polyester cotton fabric. The next time I make this bag I would make the cord out of green instead of white and then I would attach the strawberries to the bag cord but I did not think of that until I had finished it!
I decided to pop over to the The Graphics Fairy blog here, to obtain the strawberry picture, Karen has some lovely old photos and pictures that you can download for free, it really is a blog to inspire.
I used transfer paper to put the picture on the fabric.
The image is printed the reverse way around. You can write words on the photographs by editing the picture in Picasa 3, this can be downloaded free from the internet.
