How to make strawberries from felt or paper

I have strawberries on the brain at the moment, and these felt versions are totally adorable. Get a tutorial for this chocolate-covered strawberry from Honey Girl Studio. (Look out! There's music, so hit mute if you don't want your boss to catch you skulking around the internet.)

This bowl of strawberries has downloadable instructions right here by Mr. Monkeysuit. Or get another free pattern here at Lit'l Brown Bird.

If you'd rather not stab your finger with a needle because you like paper cuts better, try folding origami strawberries like these from Flickr user N'omettre Rien.

Panda Snacks made an insane cake with them. You'll need some strawberry origami folding paper, available here at Etsy. This video shows how to fold them.

As I was preparing this post, a strange thing happened. I took a break to poke around YouTube, curious to see what the music artist Marina and the Diamonds looks like, since Are You Satisfied and I Am Not a Robot recently infiltrated my head. The first video I clicked was this. Are those felt strawberries attached to her shoulders?!

ohhh, I love the strawberries for our play kitchen! How fun :)

I was so sad that this was the first week we didn't get strawberries from our CSA. Really really sad. This brightened my day a bit!

You are the princess of strawberry,
(in German) die Erdbeerfee!

Jess said...

Are you sure that doesn't mean princess of beer?

Those were definitely strawberries on her shoulders! Interesting kitchy look/sound...and the bee brooch and midnight blue peep toes, and how the gutarist rest one foot on top of the other. :)
