Emily has been getting into embroidery lately, which means she has been coming up with all kinds of cute crafts! For our citrus collection this month, she is showing us how to make different kinds of embroidered citrus jewelry using our felt and floss.
Since you’ll be working with small felt pieces and jewelry accessories, we would say this is more of an intermediate DIY craft. To help guide you, we’ve created a video tutorial so you can see how to create and assemble your jewelry.
Our embroidered citrus jewelry would be fun to craft for yourself or as as a gift. The template below includes the pattern to make a whole fruit or fruit slice. All you have to do is change out the felt colors and floss depending on if you want to make an embroidered felt orange, grapefruit, lemon, or lime.
This is also a project where you can get really creative with it by creating different color combinations, adding multiple fruits to make some dangle earrings, or alternating whole fruits with fruit slices on a necklace. You can see what we did if you like by checking out our color combinations listed below.
Skill level: Intermediate
Stitches used: Stem Stitch, Back Stitch and Lazy Daisy. For extra guidance on some of these embroidery stitches, check out our embroidery guide.
