Just the veggie for a nice summer meal!
This again is a creation for a friend. I know there are patterns out there, but I made up my own.
Cut out your felt. You will need yellow and green (for the top).
You will be cutting out a vaguely butterfly shape and a long skinny piece with a bulbous bit at the end from the yellow to make the body of the squash.
From the green you will cut a small circle and a short skinny bit for the top.
Fold the yellow in half pin it together to avoid slippage, and cut out a shape something like a summer squash. When you open it it will look like a butterfly (see above photo)
The long shape in yellow should be approximately the length of the edge the shape to the left.
Begin sewing the long skinny shape to the butterfly shape with the bulbous end at the bottom of the squash shape. (the big end) Like this.
Once you have stitched up one side start back down the other. Make sure to leave a space to stuff and flip.
Stuff as full as you like.
Stitch shut. (I recommend a hidden ladder stitch for this)
Straight stitch the green circle to the skinny green rectangle.
(I am so sorry I don't have a photo of this... I forgot to snap it in my rush to complete the five squashes I was making)
Flip the little "cap" you have made inside out. Place a small about of stuffing within.
Backstitch down the cap onto the summer squash on its head (the small end) wherever you feel is best.
Voila you are finished with your little squash. Ratatouille anyone?
I guess I will have to post a zucchini next yeah?
