Calico Fruit

Digging in the cupboard of my sewing room for some tracing paper I saw a bag of stuffed fruit on the top shelf. I started making these thinking they would make a nice table center display. In reality my table is covered in cutting boards and fabric, hence they stay in the bag. I never made the apples or grapes. I think it is funny that all the finished ones start with the letter ‘P’; pears, pomegranates, and plums. The colors of these particular fruits together would also offer lovely compositions for embroidery. The variations of different yellows(greens), reds, and purples(blues), are endless. I may start using these stuffed pieces as pin cushions. The pear stems are made of leather shoe laces. The pomegranate bottoms are craft pompoms.
