Witches Stitches – Fabric Acorns

I wanted some fun fabric acorns to use as bowl fillers and with the dolls I make. So here is what it did. I collected a bunch of acorns and removed their caps. Now you have the empty cap ready for you to make a bottom for it. All you have to do is cut a circle, (I don’t measure. I just look at the size acorn and then cut a circle I think will work.

After I have cut the circle, I do a running stitch around the edge of whatever fabric you have chosen. Pull your stitch a little bit and your fabric will pull into what looks like a little cup. Now put some fibber fill in this, (stuff it tight). When it is filled pull your thread tight and knot it off. Now put some white glue in the top of the acorn cap and stick the little ball of stuffed fabric open side up, into your acorn cap. Let the glue set and now you have a little fabric acorn with a real cap. If you have any questions, please give me a shout.
I have included a picture of a doll where I used one of the fabric acorns as a necklace.
