Fabric fruit and thrifted books

Oh, there’s just something about a pear isn’t there? Such a friendly, comfy shape. How to make them? I wondered.

At the thrift store the other day, I found a great book with patterns for all sorts of fruits and vegetables.

Found this book, too…

…just in time for the holidays! I’ve posted my favorite designs on my flickr photostream.

From A Patchwork Christmas.

From Scrap Savers Christmas Stitchery Book.

  1. I LOVE THE PEAR. Oh how I want that patternnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

  2. I love the fruit and veggi’s they are amazing. Also love the little story about your Dad’s nickname :-)

  3. Gorgeous pear!

  4. Oh please, I would love the pattern too! I tried to find the book.


  5. What a super book. I love your pear – it is ummmm a bit more elegant than those in the book. I’m tempted to buy that book, even though I’m not much of a Christmas crafter.

  6. I love your pear so much! I must go hunting for the book – I want my own pear, but I haven’t found the right pattern yet. Do you want to share your pattern…..? Do say no if that’s what you mean. I understand. Happy christmas – soon! But not too soon. It’s my favorite time of the year.

  7. Hi, I’ve lost your e-mail adress. A while ago you sent me an e-mail about the pattern. If you have sent me a message after that then I have not received it.

    Happy new Year

  8. Would you be willing to trade some photocopies from this book for something? I’m making felt food for my friend’s daughter and have been searching for things like pears and apples, etc.

  9. Hi, would you be willing to share this lovely pear pattern? The shape is very realistic.

    Thank you.

  10. I’d love a copy of the pattern as my attempt at one without looked like anyrhing but a pear which has frustrated me no end, i can’t get the right shape at all – grrrrr
