We’ve got a wonderful surprise for all of the Stitch Love fans out there! Author Mollie Johanson has provided us with instructions for an adorable embroidered felt lettuce leaf to go along with the Gleeful Guinea Pig Plush project included in the book. Check out the instructions and how-to photos below to make your own, and please post pictures of your Gleeful Guinea Pig munching on her leaf in the comments section. 

If you don’t already have your copy of Stitch Love, order your copy here.

The Gleeful Guinea Pig Plush in Stitch Love: Sweet Creatures Big & Small ended up being one of my favorite projects in the whole book. My sister has claimed this gal for her own, but I thought she looked hungry. Guinea Pigs love lettuce, so I stitched up a felt lettuce leaf for her. And guess what? The Gleeful Guinea Pig loves it!

 

To make your own, you will need:

Green felt

Green embroidery floss

Scissors

Tracing paper

Pencil

Needle

Gleeful Guinea Pig Lettuce Leaf

For each lettuce leaf, cut two leaf shapes from green felt.

 

GuineaPigLettuceLeaf3

 

Using the tracing paper method given in Stitch Love, embroider the veins onto one of the leaves with back-stitch and three strands of green embroidery floss.

Carefully tear away the tracing paper.

 

GuineaPigLettuceLeaf5

 

Hold the two leaf shapes together and stitch around the edge with running stitch and three strands of green embroidery floss. Hide the knot between the layers.

Now you can serve a snack to your favorite stuffed guinea pig!

Stitch love, friends!
