Thank you to Julia for providing this project for Young Quilters
You will need
- Scraps of assorted green and red fabrics
- Toy stuffing
- Embroidery thread and needle
If you want to hand sew you can use felt and stitch pips with French knots in green embroidery thread.
Download a Strawberry bunting template.
Cut your fabric using the templates provided. Fold the strawberry shapes in half, right side to right side and sew down the open edge side (1/4” seam allowance) and cutting across the bottom.
Turn through and using a double thread and big knot at the end, do a running stitch around the top, turning under a small hem as you go.
Stuff the strawberry firmly and pull up the stitches to gather in and stitch closed firmly.
Now make your yoyo (Suffolk puff) by again with a big knot and double thread do a running stitch around the circle ,turning under a small hem as you go.
Pull up the threads and twiddle until you get the gathers sitting centrally before stitching down to hold them in place.
Now stitch to the top of the strawberry with a couple of stitches hidden in the folds and create a loop to attach to the bunting either from the thread or add one from ribbon.
Well done your bunting is complete! Time to find somewhere to hang it.
