Felt Fruit

Book:  Felt Fruit and Vegetables
If you can't tell from the picture here is one tomato and one apple. With the tiny hand blanket stitching they took a long time to finish - I started them almost a year ago but was never in the mood.  Late pregnancy/ nesting urge got me to finally finish them and I'm happy I did.  Once things settle down a bit after the baby I hope to make more but instead on the machine.  The leaves of the tomato were done on the machine but you can see it doesn't look as clean.

Also, if you look closely you will notice the apple has a fuzzier texture.  That is because that felt was from JoAnn's where as the tomato was cut from some special felt Marie's mom sent from Japan - it is so much nicer!  I recommend splurging on the nice felt (you can find it here or here) if you plan on hand sewing because it feels better in your hand.  I will use the cheap stuff from JoAnn's as I experiment.

If you look even closer you will notice the fruit are resting on my very pregnant belly - a perfect table top!  


  1. I'm going to start peeking in on you ladies - love all the projects (I saw mammamita on the 50 states postcard swap). Anyhow, I love to sew and your projects are FANTASTIC!!!

  2. I'd love for you to link this up at my Felt Food Roundup on I hope to see you there!
