One more addition to Serenity’s felt tree for now… lemons! I had some leftover yellow fleece from Serenity’s Care Bear costume, so I made some lemons. I made a little pattern myself… and it took a few tries before I thought they were very lemony. The first one was too small and ball-like… I think because I cut four pieces of my pattern that was shaped more like half a lemon. =)
The second was too big and still kind of round like…
And finally, I ended up with this shape, which was my favorite. Although I know in real life lemons come in all kind of crazy shapes. Here’s a pic of the pattern, I used four pieces. It’s about 6 inches long, three high. The stem is sewn from the fuzzy side of the velcro, just like the pickable strawberries and green beans.
I sewed little squares of Velcro to the tree, so they are pickable! There are six lemons, but Serenity picks them almost as soon as I put them on the tree so the picture here just has four =) We’re having such fun!
