Now for the tricky part. Mark outlines on patterns using chalk or permanent fabric marker. Sew a loose running stitch along each of the “veins” pulling tightly before knotting and moving to the next marking. Keep all the knots on the marked side – this will be the inside.How to make felt vegitables

This will become trickier as you go but I believe in you!
