Felt apples, pears and oranges. What can I say? I love fruit. I love it felted, in jam, in jelly, in marmalade, in salad, in juice, on fabric prints, as Christmas tree ornaments. I love fruit-scented ink, fruit-scented candles, soap made with fruit, facials containing fruit extracts, etc. I'll stop, even though I could go on and on...I love FRUIT!
Finishing up work on the apple pins for a custom order. They're made of felted wool sweater material and reclaimed leather for the stem. They're completely handsewn. The first one is finished and his buddies are waiting for their finishing touches. I think each of these little guys has taken me roughly 2 hours to complete, not including the time it took to felt the sweater material and dye the green wool.
