I made this little scented strawberry to hang in my car but it would also make a cute scissor keeper or pincushion. It's published on the Fiskarettes UK FaceBook page.
I cut a semi-circle with a radius of 8 cm from red felt, a white flower and a green leaf and calyx.
I sewed yellow seed beads randomly onto the berry, then with right sides together sewed the side seam to make a cone shape, rounding the bottom so the shape wasn’t too pointy.
I filled the berry with toy filling, and inserted a cotton wool ball with a few drops of pot-pourri refresher oil, then gathered the top edge with a running stitch. I then stitched the opening closed and attached a loop of ribbon to the top of the berry.
I added veins to the calyx and leaf with two strands of green embroidery silk, snipped a small hole in the centre of the calyx to pull the hanging loop through, then stitched the calyx and leaf onto the strawberry. I sewed some larger gold beads to the centre of the flower and attached it onto the opposite side to the leaf.
