Because of everything that has been going on this summer, I feel like I’m a little behind… Wee Folk Art speaking. There were a few things that we have done that I didn’t have time to share at the time but still want to.
So… first up… STRAWBERRIES! Although June is traditionally our strawberry month around here… that’s when we go picking and make our jams, we do enjoy strawberries all summer long. Just like apples, it’s amazing how different strawberries can taste. They can be small and tart or large and mild. We prefer certain types for preserves and others for juicy eating. But no matter how you slice them, we are huge fans!
Today we are sharing a simple, but versatile Strawberry Block Applique. It was designed to fit a 6″ x 6″ block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. For tips on cutting out felt, check out our blog post HERE. The pattern for this strawberry can be found HERE. Enjoy!
