They Can Also Spruce Up Your Decor, Be Sachets, and More!
These luscious strawberries almost look good enough to eat! Instead use them as pincushions, sachets, pattern weights, or even to spruce up your decor.
Display several in a bowl or basket for a bright accent. Or fill them with crushed walnut shells, fine steel wool, or plastic pellets along with some polyfill for pincushions.
Make lovely sachets by filling them with dried lavender. Rice, dried beans, glass beads or marbles, pebbles, and more will turn them into pattern weights.
Regardless of how you choose to use them, keep in mind that these strawberries will also make lovely gifts. And they’re a great use for your red and green scraps.
Erika Mulvenna from We All Sew has written an excellent tutorial for making the strawberries – and a charming berry basket.
You’ll also need the pattern found here.
A second tutorial, also by Erika, shows how to make the cute berry basket. While they’re perfect f0r displaying your beautiful strawberries, they can also be used for sewing supplies and much more. Plus, the pint-sized baskets stack together when not in use.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
