The first step is making the felt blueberries.
Don’t be intimidated by the number of blueberries these felt foods are fast and easy to sew. You’ll need a strong thread, if your thread is too week to handle the gather you can use 2 strands doubled over.
When creating your X shape in the center of the circles cut small but be sure to cut completely through.
Create a gathering stitch around the outside of the largest circle.
Pull tightly, run the needle through the base of the berry in varying directions to close.
Repeat with remaining berries.
Stitch finished berries into place by stewing stitches through them leaving space along the edges.
Stack a few berries on top of the base of berries if desired to create depth.
Connect sides along the short sided angles with an overcast stitch and matching thread.
