Got some mangosteens from the supermarket the other day. I bought 2kg for S$5, thought that was quite cheap*! Not the cheapest, of course, as I remember the Giant Megamart at Tampines was selling them at S$1.90 per kg.
The mangosteens were sweet + a little tangy (just a little) = very nice & refreshing! As I got down to the last two, I decided to sew a felt mangosteen to remember these wonderful fruits that I had enjoyed tremendously.
I can't share the real fruits with you, but here's the felt version. Enjoy!
The felt colours I have are really limited, so I chose this dark purple-pink piece, the closest colour I could get. But somehow it turned out so pinkish in the photos & I'm afraid it now looks like a tomato passing off as a mangosteen! But can you just imagine that it's a mangosteen?
* Just came back from NTUC Fairprice & guess what - they are selling the mangosteens at only S$2.20 per kg! :(
