I made these cute felt strawberry magnets over a few evenings while watching tv.

These little Kawaii-style strawberries came out so cute. It was fun adding different eyelashes to some and different smiles to others. After making a few I noticed my stitches became more uniform and I got a little faster at hand stitching. I used an over and under (blanket stitch) throughout.

To finish I added a peel and stick magnet to the back of each and put them in a berry container lined with a green checked square of fabric. I made and printed and gift label too.

STEP 2: Next use a light yellow thread to stitch seeds. I stitched them onto both the front and back sides. Don’t worry about how messy the stitches are on the wrong sides of the felt, that will be on the inside.

STEP 3: Next stitch on the felt eyes and cheeks. Then use black thread to make the mouth. Last, use matching green thread to stitch the green top onto both the front and back sides. Try to get them in the same place so the front and back line up when you stitch all the way around (see the next step).

STEP 4: With the green top secured to the front and back side of the berry, begin sewing the whole thing together starting with the green top.

Now sew the front of the strawberry to the back starting with the green top.

STEP 5: Finish by switching to matching red thread to stitch the strawberry body. Leave about an inch open and stuff before stitching closed. Add a magnet to the back and the label to the top of the container and you’re done.

Sew the red body of the strawberry together, stuff  and stitch closed.
