The Apples, a tutorial


Yes, I'm still making felt food. No break for me! (well, this can be count as one, I guess)

This weekend I made 5 delicious-looking apples, including one that can be cut.



Now, for those coming over from Kimba's and missed my 4 felt food links I add last week to the DIY day, you need to know that I'm making LOTS and LOTS of playfood for my 16month old daughter, for the Play Kitchen I'm slowly making for her, for Christmas.



Want so clues to do some?

I used:
Red felt (free) Green and brown felt (90¢ per sheet) Thread (red, brown and green (from my stash) and stuffer (from a dead teady bear!) oh, white felt, too! (free)
Cost: I didn't take the time to calculate, but it must be something above 3$ for the 5 apples.

Shapes I cut:


4 or those for an apple
or one plus one of those:

For the cut one. (4 times)

For the whole ones, I've run stitched all the part one after the other, closely enough, without gathering and I reverse it all, stuff, and ladder stitched the rest.

For the cut one, I've Overcast stitch the white fabric with red thread. Hand embroiled the seed with brown threat.

For the tail:

In brown fabric. Add leaves if you want!

The trick to make your red ball look like an apple is to pass your needle were the 4 cuts join right through the apple and again to the 4 cut join at the bottom. You pull a little and make lots of knots, then you sew in the tail.

Hope you understood something out of my quite explaination!


Wednesday, I'm doing a second édition of My project under 15$.
This time the twist is that it should be something you gave, or going to give!
Hope you'll find something to link!



Have a nice week!!!
