What you'll need
Materials for a red beet with the dimensions 22 x 24 cm:
- Cutting pattern to download and print
- Heat resistant fabric (e.g. pure cotton or pure linen) with the following dimensions:
2 x 24 x 26 cm for the outer fabric
1 x 20 x 24 cm for the insert
3 x 22 x 24 cm heat resistant batting (e.g. Thermolam, Insul-Bright and similar)
- Approx. 53 cm string / ribbon cut to: 1 x 15 cm; 1 x 18 cm, 1 x 20 cm
- Matching or contrasting sewing thread (as desired)
- SCHMETZ universal needle with the needle thickness 80/12 or 90/14
Note: The cutting pattern includes a 1cm seam allowance. For an optimal result, the cutting pattern should be printed in the original size (100 % scale). Simply check the size of the control square after printing. All fabrics should be pre-washed, dried and ironed to prevent the item from shrinking. Unless otherwise specified, lock all seams at the start and end.
- Domestic sewing machine
- Iron and ironing board
- Pins or clips
- Tailor's chalk or a pen to transfer the pattern where necessary
- Ruler or tape measure where necessary
- Scissors or rotary cutter with cutting mat
Time to get sewing! Sewing instructions
Other motif ideas
- Apple, pear
- Abstract shapes
Tip: For some motif ideas, faces or dots can also be sewn on by hand. Layering different fabrics can also create great effects (e.g. make the belly of the whale a lighter blue than the rest of the body). Patchwork also works great with this project.
In a small design, the stitched works of art are also perfect as:
- Key rings
- Toys for babies
- Decoration on a pushchair chain
- A sensory element on a crawl blanket.
There are no limits to your imagination.
