Yummy !
I learned how to make this when i was little. It's super simple !

Felt is so fun to work with. It is also super cheap. At my craft store it is 20 cents for each sheet.

Awesome!
I've been wanting to make felt cakes for my friend and I was wondering how to make the strawberries.
Thanks a lot.

This is great! I've already made a couple and am set to make more soon! I thread 1 strand of embroidery floss (not doubled, just hold the extra piece that went through the needle), tie a knot and cut the excess off, then run it through the strawberry to the other side. then I tie another knot as close as I can to the side of the strawberry as possible. Then I poke the needle back into the strawberry right next to the knot and pull it out at whatever spot I want another "seed" and tie a knot again. I continue this until I get as many seeds as I want all over the berry. On the last seed, I tie a double knot and cut the string. Happy

Thanks for the idea! So clever and easy!
