Wool Felt Fruit ~ lovingly hand-created

 We began making Felt Fruit during craft sessions a while ago.
Any fellow School Crafties reading this will know, it has taken me a while to finish my little collection. 
But as you can see, I am now happily there!

On comparison with real strawberries, I decided there was a variation in
the seed colour. Mostly citrus. So this variegated floss worked well.
Spot the Felt strawberry.

  I am afraid I can't take credit for any of the patterns. They were all masterminded by other clever Craft Group members.

Seasonal fruit is of course perfect for our Nature Table. 

I just love hand~sewing, & the quality wool felt is so wonderful to touch and work with.

My kiwi has been donated to the School Treasure House.

My felt Banana pieces were cut out for
a looong time before completion.
 Yes, these do take time, but I have loved making each piece of fruit and I think I shall make even more as gifts.

What do you think of these special little wonders?

  1. I think they are very cleverly made and you are very very patient! The strawberry is really quite life like - in fact all of them look very real. Lucky friends who receive these as gifts!!

  3. Your fruit looks so great! I also had made some felt food for my kids, and got so addicted, that now I've sold some and can't stop the felt creations. Your banana is particularly awesome! I can make sandwich sets, but for some reason, the bananas with peel have intimidated me too much to try yet... maybe I'll have to try now :)

    I need to speak with my crafty ladies.
    I'm not comfortable with posting patterns that I didn't create. But I'm super pleased you like them. I think they turned out well.
