  • How to make a fruit plushie. Felt Strawberry (Halves) - Step 1
    Step 1

    First, cut out a quadrant of red felt for the outside of your strawberry.

    Then, sew small straight stitches (for the 'seeds') in white thread following the suggested pattern here. (Alternatively, you could also use white beads for the 'seeds.')

    *Note: I now use double-threading for all my stitching so it turns out firm but this is a personal preference - Using single-threading should work just as fine, too.

    Next, cut out a teardrop-shaped piece of light pink felt with a flat bottom (in the ratio shown in picture 4).

    Then, glue a smaller piece of white felt in the centre.
    *Note: This step is optional since we will be stitching the white felt onto the pink in the next step but applying a little glue will ensure it stays in place. :)

    Now, sew 15 straight stitches (alternating short and long stitches) in white thread all around the edge of the white felt to secure it to the pink felt, which will form the sliced 'inside' of the strawberry half.

    After preparing your red felt (straight-stitched with 'white seeds') and pink felt (with white felt stitched onto it), you should have something that looks like this.

    *Note: I made a pair of strawberry halves, hence this double set (which you could use as a suggested ratio for the template).

    Now, sew small running stitches along the margin (allowing for seam allowance) in red thread.

    Once you have done so, pull the thread and sew up the bottom so that it does not come apart.

    Sew all around the pink piece in red thread using neat overcast stitches to secure it to the red felt of your strawberry.

    When complete, it should look like the strawberry half shown here. :)

    This is how the back of your strawberry half should look like.

    I have learnt that it is more fun to do a pair of strawberry halves - You could place it together to form a heart (almost) as shown in the main picture above.

    Have fun crafting! :)
