Let Us Eat Lettuce (Romaine Lettuce) - Felt Food Cook-Along - Day 20
Lettuce is another one of those things that is pretty easy to figure out, but I figured if I'd done a tutorial on everything else, I'd do one for this one.
Materials: Green felt, general sewing stuff
I started by cutting out a lettuce leaf shape freehand. I was wasn't super happy with the first one, so I cut a second one out free hand. I liked that one better, so I used it as a template for my others.
Then I pinned my single lettuce leaves to more felt, and sewed around them.
Then I started at the base of my leaf and sewed some vein lines up one side and then back down the other. These I just did free hand as well. Some turned out better than others.
I've definitely discovered that it's worth making more than one of pretty much everything, since most of the time goes into figuring out the right shape and everything. You can certainly figure out your own shapes well enough, but since I've finally figured out how to upload PDF files for you to print, I've included the pattern of the ones I came up with.
Or put it with some sliced cheese in a sandwich. We'll be getting to the bread soon!
