Strawberry Craft - Fabric Berries

Here is a link to a cute craft that can be adapted for the kitchen. The instructions are for making these fabric strawberries up as pincushions, so they call for filling them with emery or sand for sharpening pins. However, since I've been working on decorating my kitchen with strawberries, I thought they could easily be made up with polyfiberfill instead. My thought is to make some and either fill a glass bowl with them or make a sort of garland to hang over the white valance at my kitchen window - or maybe both! Anyway, you might enjoy making some of these, either as the pincushion/sharpener or as kitchen decor. They could also be made into some cute fridge magnates without too much effort.
