fresh picked...

If you ever have an itch to make something really cute, that isn't too hard...
Pick up a pattern by Heather Bailey.

Her projects are so so cute, and she writes her patterns perfectly! I can actually make something for the first time ever, and it looks great! I don't need to make a "practice" one anymore!

And, since they are rather small, I just used scraps out of my huge scrap collection.

I just made these pieces from the Fresh Picked pattern set...

Green Pear

Yellow Pear

Red Apple

Green Tomato

I made a strawberry too. It was so cute, that I decided to make it a cat toy and filled it with catnip. I wasn't even halfway finished with it before Matilda was up on my desk searching for it. So I hurried and finished it, and now it's ruined. She loved it to death in a matter of days. Trust me though, it was adorable!

She takes her paws and mashes the strawberry into her face. It's kinda funny to watch her go so crazy. She even tries to stuff the whole thing into her mouth- which is even funnier. If you like cats, that is.
