LET'S GET SEWING
Print out the free poison apple PDF pattern and cut out the pattern pieces. Pin the pattern pieces onto felt to cut out the felt pieces as shown below.
TIP: This felt project requires cutting out small details such as the eyes, nose and the drips of the green poison goo. The end result after all the stitches are done is absolutely beautiful, but this does require some patience with small stitching and details. So definitely work on this when you have the time. Make it a craft moment to enjoy with a good coffee close by.
To cut out all of the small details in this felt project, I would recommend the use of sharp quality scissors. Use a small point marker to outline the eyes and nose features of the poisonous "green goo" and using sharp fine point scissors, cut along the outside of the markings.
After you have all of your pieces cut out, begin by sewing the small brown stem pieces together with brown thread using blanket stitches around the outside edge. Set this stem piece aside until you're ready to sew it to the apple.
Stack the "green goo" piece on top of the red apple piece and using green thread, make blanket stitches along the eyes and nose.
TIP: You can use pins or small dots of hot glue to help keep the felt pieces in place while stitching.
After the eyes and nose are stitched, blanket stitch along the dripping "green goo" portion underneath, starting at about 1/4 inch (0.5cm) from the left edge the "green goo" and work your way to the right. Stop stitching at 1/4 inch from the right edge and DO NOT END YOUR STITCH. Leave your green thread alone and move on to the next part (*)
(*) Stack your newly stitched layer (green goo on apple) on top of the second apple piece and then (using red thread) blanket stitch the bottom portion of the two apple layers together, starting from the left and making your way to the right of the apple.
TIP: Pin the apple layers together to help keep them secure while you stitch.
When your red blanket stitches reach just below the end of the "green goo" (see below) end your stitches.
Position the stem close to the center and to hold it in place, you can either sandwich the stem between the two apple pieces and stitch it in place or use a dot of hot glue to fix it to the apple.
Beginning where your green stitches left off (i.e. at the right end of the "green goo" piece) take the green thread that you left aside and blanket stitch the top "green goo" piece to the matching bottom goo piece all the way to the opposite end while sandwiching the two red apple pieces between them. When you reach the end, turn your apple over and stitch the back drips in place and then finish your stitches.
OPTIONAL: You can use an Eyelet & Snap Punch to fix an eyelet to the apple stem. Insert a ring and attach it to a key chain or to your chosen accessory. Have fun with this! You can show off your DIY poison apple in many different ways such as a fashion accent or an ornament.
