But I couldn't get my plan to work. Most frustrating! The halves look good enough individually:
But the plan to be able to 'stick' them together for 'cutting' apart just didn't work. I couldn't get the face of each lemon half flat enough to be able to stick them together nicely. If I'd had yellow velcro that I could have used as the segments that may have worked, but the velcro circle I used in the middle isn't big enough to overcome the bulge of each half.
I'm not going to give full written instructions for the half lemons given they didn't work how I wanted, but here is a bit of a 'how to' in pictures.
|Cut 3 elongated 'lemon' shapes|
|stitch 2 of these together|
|add the third shape and stitch on one side|
|stitch down the last seam, leaving no hole for turning right side out|
|find the centre and cut the shape in half|
|open out both halves and trim edges level|
|cut out a white & yellow circle. Cut down yellow circle to form segments. Stitch these onto white circle|
|Use blanket stitch to attach white circle with segments to stuffed lemon half|
Finish off each half like the whole lemon - a small green wool know on one and a stitched 'nobbly' bit on the other (see the original lemon tutorial for details)
Any ideas on how to make 'cuttable' felt fruit welcome! One friend suggested magnets which I think could work, but I haven't tried that yet.
