Make your own Strawberries!


Hello! I hope your week has been wonderful!I have had quite a week. We lost the car keys to my dad's car....and I have looked everywhere, still can't find them! Oh my...but in the midst of this drama I did do some strawberries made out of wool and vintage tablecloths! And I am hooked on them! (http://hookedonhouses.net/
Be sure to visit Julia at Hooked on Houses for the Hooked on party.
This little sign (Family) I won recently in a blog giveaway from Cherry@http://cherrysjubileehome.blogspot.com/ it just fits in perfectly with my little strawberry!

Resin strawberries I found while thrifting one day!


Add ImageDon't you love strawberries when they are ripe and red! A little whip cream....yumaroo....

I had to make a basket full!



I don't know about you but I just love finding "Free Patterns" on the internet. Last week I found the free pattern for the stuffed watermelons I made and then lost it! This time I am saving these patterns in a Microsoft file on my computer called "free patterns." It doesn't get any easier than this!

Go here for the easy pattern and directions. I actually went to google.com and typed in 'free strawberry pattern'....there were several!

I found the pattern and quickly got my scissors and felt....there was a cutting frenzy! Then a sewing frenzy, then I had to get more stuffing....I used up every piece of polyester batting in the house last week with the watermelons....
Hubby drove me to Joann's fabric store and sat in the car...waiting...patiently...yeah I bet!

I'm going to try this when I need a new pattern for something. I hadn't even thought of googling it and putting free!! Thanks for the idea. I still love all your strawberries and when things calm down I'm going to have to make some! Happy fourth of July! (well, tomorrow anyway)!

Love your strawberries. You are having too much fun making them. I also love your header picture too. Have a great weekend! Oh, and I hope you eventually find the keys. You will probably find them in the last place you look. That always happens to me.

Everything looks so cute and colorful. I love the gingham strawberries the best, so adorable.
I had to laugh when you said your hubby drove you to Joann's and waited patiently.
