I have had a great liking for strawberry motifs since I was around 11 years old. I started “collecting” strawberry themed things then - some for my room, some for my hope chest. I am working on a strawberry theme in my kitchen and have included a little in the dining room. Some of you may remember my post about my old strawberry cookie jar.
I was poking around looking at strawberry things online and it occurred to me that it might be fun to mix up our Saturdays a bit and throw in some strawberry themed crafts and sewing projects. I’ll give it a go and see how it works out. Some of these will be things that I actually make myself, but probably a lot of them will be things I would like to make, or just a starting point for another idea. I hope you enjoy my little side hobby. (I have a niece who also likes strawberries, so I’m thinking at least she will find this interesting.) :-)
For something pretty and easy I simply sewed strawberry ribbon onto a red hand towel that I use in the kitchen. I pinned on the ribbon and sewed carefully down one side, removing the pins. Then I sewed the other side. Before I started sewing the ribbon on, I folded the ends under so that I could catch them as I sewed from the front, but I missed one side on both ends. It was a simple matter of sewing them down by hand, though. If you try this, make sure you use washable ribbon.
