Today we're moving on to sliced onions. These were inspired by this link (same one as the pizza crust and pizza sauce...don't worry we'll branch out more soon, but there are so many great ideas on this site!)
Materials: Some white felt, a small bowl or plate for tracing, a sewing machine (or you could hand sew with a running stitch), scissors
- Start by tracing a small dish or bowl to make a circle.
- Starting at the fold, sew double arcs around the onion, about half way up and then turn around and sew back down. Secure the ends of your thread each time you start a new arc (so each time you start or come back to the fold). I used the freemotion foot mostly because I was having fun trying it out. This would probably be even easier with a regular presser foot, or if you're hand sewing, you could probably get away with just sewing one arc with a running stitch.
- Cut your arcs apart and put them on your pizza. (Each double arc should stay intact and make up one onion slice.)
