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!)
I think I like this pretty little Lemon Tree Embroidery Pattern even more though. I love the pretty flowers and the different stitches included here. The beauty of a pdf pattern like this is that you can buy it and download it and get working on it if you already have the supplies in your craft room!
I also found this super cool C2C graph for a lemon slice blanket. I love the close-up and modern feel of this lemon. C2C stands for corner to corner, which means you start in the corner and work through the graph diagonally is not something I have done much of, but it does kind of interest me. Perhaps when I’m up and ready again for another big project! I tell ya, renos take a lot out of a girl!
I’ve been thinking about play food amigurumis in a new way recently. I think they’re so adorable, but my kids are too old to be interested in playing with crocheted food, so I’ve been thinking that perhaps I could insert a sponge in them for filling and make them out of cotton and put them by the sink in the kitchen or the bathroom to clean with. What do you think? I think this Amigurumi Lemon Crochet Pattern would be a perfect candidate for such use. If you have ever done this, please let me know any tips or tricks you have!
Perhaps a whole lemon would be a bit easier to get a handful of suds to clean the dishes in the kitchen? What do you think? Also, this little Lemon crochet pattern is a great deal: under $1.50 CAD (so that’s probably like $1 USD!)
There’s also this super tiny lemon wedge crochet play food amigurumi pattern! It looks like it’s almost as small as a real lemon wedge! This designer has such mad crochet skills! What a great looking pattern! It uses a 1.4 mm crochet hook (which is pretty small!), but look at the final result! This would make such a fun addition to a crochet play food set!
These adorable lemon slice crocheted pillow patterns would make a fun addition to any outdoor space! I love bright and cheery deck decor, so I think I could easily add one of these cushions to my deck! What a fun idea. It could be a great addition to a kids’ bed as well.
And I just had to include this darling Lemon-inspired crocheted doll pattern! I love everything about this sweet little doll, including her lime wedge pony-tail holders, her fun pigtails and adorable little smile! This sweet little doll would make a lovely handmade gift and looks like a ton of fun to make!
I hope you enjoyed this round up of crafty lemon-themed patterns. Pick up a pattern and get crafting today or pin it for later!
