Taking it to the next level

Today I wanted to create a pattern to make strawberries in 3 different ways.
1) A whole strawberry
2) Half a strawberry
3) A strawberry slice

From the 3 above the 1st one is the easiest one, and I have already made 2 and they look quite OK to be my first strawberries and the second thing I ever made with felt...

While I was preparing the pattern for the strawberries in 3 ways I felt tempted to look -again- to the wonderful images of the strawberries and cakes made by japanese artist Ruko. This is a link to her 'food' gallery ( and it's truly amazing what she makes.

So I spent the whole night looking at her designs instead of making my very own strawberries. And I finally decided to buy a book of her creations to get my skills to the next level.  A 2nd hand copy of "Ruko's original sweets made of felt" is coming my way from Japan during the following weeks. I can't wait!
