The Beets, just the beets
I made some felt beets for some friends. Here they are.
Cut out your pieces. A half circle in a nice dark beet color and a leafy green double leaf piece for the greens.
Fold the half circle in half and sew up the open edge, don't forget that nifty little notch in to make a most beety beet shape.
Flip the felt inside out and STUFF!
Stitch around the top of the stuffed beet with big straight stitches and pull tight.
With the beet colored thread stitch veins down the center of each side of your greens. I suggest and up and back method.
Before you knot it pull the greens tight, but not oo tight to creata "leafy" effect.
Roll up your greens. I rolled tightly one way, then took the "second leaf" and rolled it back on itself. I think the effect is better.
Stitch the greens shut.
Stitch the greens to the open "whole" in the top of the "beet". Now you have a cute little beet with greens.
