Red Velvet Strawberries

My inspiration for this week’s Summer of Color challenge came from a drawing my daughter drew last week.

It’s a picture of us making strawberry jam together. 

It’s funny because we’ve never grown strawberries, let alone made anything that resembles a condiment out of them.  But she’s not one to let lack of experience get in the way of her art.

Similarly, I try not to let my lack of experience with sewing keep me from working with fabrics from time to time.

I decided to make red velvet strawberries using an old paper pattern I had.  Back when I was a Close To My Heart demonstrator, I used to make a basket full of paper strawberries with matching stamped cards to ‘wow’ my customers. 

I’ll let the photos take it from here…


Hope you liked my red creations! Be sure and see the other creations inspired by the color ‘red’ over at  the Summer of Color.
