You know what they say: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Or lemon-inspired crafts! I’m on a bit of a lemon kick these days. I actually love the actual fruit. I love to have a wedge of lemon squeezed in my water… delicious! But I also love all the pretty lemon things. I want to add a bit of a pop of lemon to my new bathroom, so I’ve been exploring lemon crafts to include (and also, I get wandering a little bit, so some of these are definitely not suitable for the bathroom). I hope you enjoy this lemon-inspired crafty round up!

I just love this impressive Lemon Tea Cosy crochet pattern! The pile of lemons on top are so real looking with their little stem end! And I love the subtle little nod to experienced crocheters who would recognize the stitch in the body of the tea cosy as the lemon peel stitch. Super cute. It would look so fun in my kitchen!
Or check out this super great vintage set of lemon patterns for the kitchen! A rug, potholders, stool covers, and placemats. What a fun set of patterns. I love the simple in the round design, but with the little teardrop shape of the lemon! Such a fun pattern idea! Great vintage lemony vibe!
You don’t just have to decorate with lemons, you can make knitwear, as well! Check out this adorable lemon knitting hat pattern! This cute little hat may look a little complicated, but there’s just some simple shaping at the crown to give it that lemony profile and a little stem and leaf to top it off. It would make a great gender-neutral baby shower gift and comes in 4 sizes: 0-3 months, 6 months, 12 months and 2T.
For a slightly different profile for a darling Lemon Hat knitting pattern, you could try this one. Which one do you prefer1? I like the rolled rim of the second one, but I think either one would make an adorable baby gift!
Or you can crochet a cute little lemon treasure cake! I don’t think the photos do justice to this stunning piece of art! How fun would it be for a little girl to have a cute little lemon cake decoration, but to be able to fill it with her little treasures!? What if that little girl was in her 40s… that wouldn’t be so bad, right? Love this adorable crochet pattern!
On a more practical note, this Lemonade and Limeade Crochet Coaster Pattern is a fun and summery crochet pattern to rest your lemonade and keep it from sweating all over your furniture!
One of the options for decor in my bathroom is a small piece of embroidery. I’ve never been the most avid embroidery fan, but I do love the look of some of the options out there these days, like this Lemons Cross Stitch Pattern. I think it would look sweet hanging in my new bathroom (still not done yet: working madly!)
