Design Inspiration

This is the first piece I created for my Pregnancy Progress Project. This lemon measures about 3.5″ long, the same as a baby at 14 weeks! If you have no idea what i’m talking about, head over to my first blog post to see this amazing project I did during my pregnancy in 2018! I have since updated the design of this lemon, as the original needed a major makeover! So I hope you enjoy the new and improved design!

January 2018: 14 weeks pregnant with my baby girl!

Now, you definitely do not need to be pregnant, or even know anyone pregnant to make this lemon. Make a bunch and place them in a bowl to make a cute center piece, make them as toys for your kids or your pets, or just make one because it’s so darn cute! This pattern will take you no time at all to whip up, and the best part is you can use up any scarp yarn you have laying around! Now let’s get making!
