Fabric fruit makes a pretty table decoration, especially when you put it in a handmade bowl. This is a fabric craft too good to eat!
What You'll Need:
- Red, yellow, orange, purple, and green felt or cotton cloth
- Blunt scissors
- Fabric glue
- Cotton batting
- Green construction paper
How to Make Fabric Fruit:
Step 1: To make round fruit, cut an 8x11-inch piece of felt or cotton cloth. Bring the short ends together to make a tube and glue them in place. To make a banana, bring the long ends together to make a tube.
Step 2: Twist one end and tie it closed with yarn.
Step 3: Turn the fabric inside out. Stuff it with cotton batting. Twist the other end and tie it with yarn to close it.
Step 4: Cut a leaf shape from a piece of green construction paper. Tuck one end of the leaf into the yarn.
Step 5: If you want, draw decorations on your fruit with markers. Make more round fruit with different colors of fabric, and arrange them in a bowl.
Next, celebrate your family with a fabric craft you can wave with pride.
