I made an apple :0)

Today I made an Apple!

I am so in love with it!

A wonderful pattern by retro mama help me create this little beauty.

Here is my finished product.
Now read below for the journey.

I used the pattern pieces from retro mama, scanned them in and drew my own designs.
they were a collaboration from my cushions, a bit of this and that.
Can you tell which cushion I used?
Once printed I just followed the pattern instructions.
Here they are all cut out.
Two views of all of the pieces sewn together. I did do my leaf and stem a bit different to the instructions as I wanted my own print. However they are backed on to felt, which was the suggested fabric.

Here it is all finished.
I couldn't believe how much stuffing this apple took, I had to stuff until it was very firm.

So what do you think?

I love this shape and have a few new ideas floating around, will come to fruition.
I still however have the pear to make also.
