I really like your tomato. What pattern did you use? I'm having a hard time working on such small dpn's for the first time. I wonder if another pattern might help me.
Oh, I knew I was forgetting something -- I finished my celery stalks. I'm real happy with them.
For the tomato itself, I cut out 5 pieces of red sweater in an oblong shape with pointed ends. This will work for any ball shape. Here's an example of an "unpeeled globe." I cut my pieces a little wider so I wouldn't have to use so many.
I sewed them up, inside out, and then turned and stuffed. Along the top I did a running stitch to create a drawstring effect and pulled it closed, then knotted.
Then I cut out green leaf shapes to put on top, and sewed those down with a whip stitch.
Does that make sense? I kind of made it up as I went along.
