Chocolate covered strawberries anyone?

How do you like these? They are from a delightful pattern by Barb King of Prairie Harvest Arts. If you aren't a sewer or just don't have time I am offering 3 ready made strawberries individually wrapped with an aged tag for $10 plus P& P. Each strawberry is handcrafted by me from unbleached muslin, painted and then covered in faux 'chocolate'. Each has a stem made from an old fashioned nail. They measure approximately 4 1/2 in. wide X 4 1/2 in. tall (including stem). Because they are individually made no two will be exactly alike. These make wonderful bowl fillers. I've shown mine piled in a basket. They would make a lovely centrepiece for Valentine's Day.


  1. Hi Mary,
