Knit a Strawberry

Well, mine kinda looks like a rosebud. This was my first attempt and I think I need a varigated red to make it look more like a strawberry. Plus, I think I missed one of the green rows. You can find the pattern here. I stuffed it with polyfill and some of those scented strawberry beads I purchased at the Japanese Dollar Store. YUM! I think I'm going to make these to tie around Christmas packages. The stem will have a longer I-cord.

Here's a few links I've found for some great Christmas ideas.

This site offers a ton of free patterns for knitting, crochet, paper crafts, you name it.

If you'd like to make your own gift boxes, this site offers free patterns to download.

Here's a great idea. Make a friend a postcard mosaic of a picture you've taken of them. Then send one postcard every day until Christmas. The link is here.

Have fun!

That is darling!I'll have to attempt a knit one now. I made a wool felt one and added black "seed" beads. Thanks for showing us!
