Red and White Felt Fairytale Mushrooms

I sewed these mushrooms by hand using craft felt (it's apparently made from recycled plastic bottles) and then I stuffed the stumps with poly pellets and reinforced the bottom to give them a base to stand on.

 

To make the cap, I cut two circles of fabric, folded the edge over, sewed a running stitch (only picking up a tiny bit of the red felt) and then gently pulled to achieve the slightly cupped look.

 

I think they look like something straight out of Wonderland and they make nice little whimsical desk decorations! Eventually these will be for sale via feltlikeit.etsy.com.
