Watermelon on a stick
I'm back! My sister in laws birthday is today and I've been working on a cute little gift for her.
First thing I did was take some muslin and cut out a watermelon shape.
Then I sewed it together leaving a small opening so I could stuff it with batting.
Next, I turned the watermelon right sides out and stuffed it with the batting, then I started painting the whole thing red.
After the red was dry I painted the green and then did the black seeds.
While the watermelon was drying, I painted some old finial block thing I had, and I found a dowel in the garage and painted that too. Then I glued the dowel into the hold that was on top of the finial block.
When everything was dry, I took the watermelon and cut a little hole in the bottom and then glued it on top of the dowel. To finish it off, I tied ribbon around the dowel. Happy Birthday Jessie!
