But what I did for the tops to make them slightly more realistic was just take a square of dark green felt, stitch it on over the drawstring-ed top, *then* trim it into little leaves with the non-stitched-on-portion after it was all on there and secure. Because my sewing is nowhere near accurate half the time, and I'm totally just making it up as I go. Plus then each strawberry is completely unique.
I didn't embroider on little seeds because a) I'm a bit lazy and b) my boys won't care. My 4yo's already tried to run off with the completed stuff, and my 19mo tries to eat a complete strawberry or carrot and gets mad when it doesn't taste like it should.
