several pieces of dark green flannel or felt, cut into 4x3 inch pieces
hand sewing needle
here are your pieces-4x3 inches...of course you can make them smaller, or larger if you like!
fold them in half, and starting at one end, on the fold, stitch in a sort of half circle (back stitch at start and finish), stopping in the middle to leave a space for turning.
can you see the inch or so i left open for turning? look REEElly hard.
now, trim close to your seam, leaving enough at your gap to be able to slip stitch it closed later.
turn right side out, using a chopstick or turning tool to get the little nooks at the end all sorted out.
now carefully and patiently...(hah!)...stuff your little green bean. the great thing is, it doesn't have to be perfect. lumps are good! it makes it look more lifelike. at least, that's my story, and i'm sticking to it!
now, still using your matching thread, slip stitch the opening closed! repeat with all the rest of your squares...or do one step at a time, assembly line style.
then, serve! (ok, ok, don't really try and eat them.)
hope you liked the tutorial, and as usual, let me know if you have any questions!
