We don’t have a pattern for the amazing garden table featured on the show, BUT here is a general description of how it was made:

The moss on the surface of the table was created by wrapping and gluing Jiffy, Homespun, and Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in various shades of green and brown. The “earth” at each leg base is made with shades of brown in Nature’s Choice, Jiffy and Homespun.

The grass is created with a variation of the Loop Stitch in a combination of Jiffy and Lion Wool.

The dandelions are crafted from pom-poms in Lion Cotton.

The leaves are felted Lion Wool, and the flowers were created with felted Lion Wool & Lion Cashmere Blend with accents of Babysoft and Vanna’s Choice Baby. The vines and stems of the flowers are wrapped in Babysoft, Cotton-Ease, Lion Cotton, Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, and Jiffy.

The butterfly was made with felted Lion Wool and wrapped Cotton-Ease, with Babysoft and Vanna’s Choice Baby embroidered accents.
