Cut Circles

Thread your needle with brown embroidery thread and sew on the brown circle, stuffing it with a bit of fiberfill when you’re most of the way around.

Sew on Face

Sew the eyes on the avocado with black thread and the cheeks with pink thread. Add reflections in the eyes with a small piece of white thread as well as a smile from black thread.
