It's that time of year again
Everyone in my house is crazy about strawberry season. We are just starting to see them in the shops again and it is heavenly.
I have needle felted each strawberry from 100% merino wool. I didn't realize how time consuming making strawberries would be when I started this project.
I started with a core of creamy white wool and then added the juiciest red color in my stash.
The seeds are individually felted on next using the tiniest tufts of pale yellow wool.
Finally the tops are cut out of 100% wool felt and I have needle felted color variation and the stalks.
