Christmas Strawberry Pincushions

I've been working on some wee little gifts this week...tiny little strawberry pincushions...done on white minkie fabric. So sweet and easy.

I used the pattern for the berry from Martha Stewart's tutorial...but not her felt top this time. Instead I frosted each one with white ribbon and white jade beads. The little roses are simple silk ribbon woven style with some glitter thread fly stitches and some silk ribbon leaves surrounding.

Each is stuffed first with crushed walnut shells and topped off with a bit of poly-fill to keep those shells from escaping.

 I stitched around the top and gathered, 

then chris-crossed some stitches across that spot before ending off the thread.
