Lemon Tree!
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!
