  • How to make a food plushie. Knitted Pizza Slice - Step 8
    Step 8

    Making up
    Stitch the crust to the curved edge of the base. Stitch the tomato sauce on to the base. 
If desired, thread the tapestry needle with green yarn and work a scattering of small stitches all over the tomato sauce, like flecks 
of herbs.
    Next, choose your toppings. To stitch the pepperoni in place, use off-white yarn and small stitches to represent flecks of fat. For all of the other toppings, use matching yarns to stitch them in place, trying to make the stitches as discreet as possible.
