Using red felt, measure the length and width of the child, cut out a strawberry (2 layers). Sew the shoulders together leaving a hole large enough for the child's head and sew or hot glue some straps to the sides. If your child is bigger than a toddler you can always just sew or glue straps on the shoulders.
Use paint to dab some berry seeds all over the strawberry, I used a swirled mixture of brown and yellow to give it depth. Cut out some leaves of green felt (like cutting out a daisy). This can be attached to their head with a barrette.
