I'm adding berries to my vine today.
Kind of nice!!!
To make my berries....
I began with a little square.
Just UNDER 2".
I trimmed the corners.
I do not try making a PERFECT circle.
It works....believe me.
I begin with a square
because it's easier to get ALL the berries
the same size when I begin
with squares that are the same size.
It's easier than trying to
cut circles the same size.
I guess....you could draw cirlces on the fabric...
but THAT would take too long!!!
I sew a big running stitch around the outside...
All the way around.
Pull that string and gather the edges together.
A pretty little berry!
Applique them down.
Enjoy the red and green goodness!!
You ARE a clever lady! Looking forward to seeing the finished product, Beth :)ReplyDelete

Happy New Year Beth!!!
I love the imperfection of the berries....very Gweny :0) don't you think? Lovely design.ReplyDelete
Happy Sewing and have a blessed 2013
Thanks for this tutorial- I always wondered how it was done! When you applique the berries do you use interfacing as well? Your work is truly gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I don't use interfacing. I just pin them on and blindstitch around. Good luck with YOUR berries!ReplyDelete
So that's how you do it...very cute!ReplyDelete
