  • How to make a candy plushie. Lemon Bonbons - Step 1
    Step 1

    Place the crystal sheer fabric on top of the yellow cotton fabric. Make the basic candy shape with both fabrics together using either the yo-yo maker or a circular paper template. Cut out a circle from a piece of paper and pin it to the fabric. Cut around the edge of the template.

    Make as many lemon bonbons as you wish and decorate them with embroidery stitches and beads. Attach the beads using sewing cotton and a beading needle.I have used fly stitch and loose French knots on some of the candies, and only beads on others. Use just two or three strands of the embroidery thread for a delicate look.
