I drew out a shape on paper for the fruit and the calyx or hull and then used them to cut out red and green fleece that I had in my material stash. I sewed the two pieces together and then used green embroidery thread to sew the achene, which I have discovered is actually the fruit part of the plant the red flesh we eat is actually accessory tissue that is refered to as the receptacle. I then sewed the patch to cover the hole. Voilà a strawberry patch!
I may need to make one for the other leg as that is wearing thin too. I hope the patch I have made is up to the job!
