Red Strawberries!

I've been working on a special order lately -- lots of different foods for a wee one's Christmas. One of her favorites to eat is strawberries.... so, of course, they will be included in my order.

Well I've made strawberries for my shop, but wanted to use a pattern that would produce a bit larger strawberry that would be safer for a little one.

So, I started increasing and increasing.... and produced a HUGE strawberry!! It turned out too big for little hands -- it's 4 inches long and 3 inches wide -- she'd have to hold it in both hands!!

So now it's a pin cushion!!  I think it will be happy in its pin cushion life--
or as a cute decoration on the kitchen table!

Now back to the drawing board for a strawberry that's just a little bit larger than my original ones!!

♥♥♥  Linking my strawberries on Rednesday at It's a Very Cherry World -- lots of fun reds to see there!
