This one is my own pattern but I got inspiration for this page at Leafy Treetop Spot. Tricia's page is so cute! I just loved her idea for a vegetable garden so much, I had to try it.
Here is the template:
I cut the garden rows piece in dark brown, and sewed it onto a sky-blue piece of felt. I just eyeballed the holes. They aren't perfect, but oh well! I also left the bottom unsewn. If a veggie or two gets pushed down through the holes, it can be easily retrieved.
To make the veggies, I sewed the green parts together first. Make sure to do any embroidery work before sewing the pieces together (on the veggies and the signs). Then, I took my sewn greenery, sandwiched it between the two veggie pieces, and sewed the whole thing together. I hand-sew all of the small pieces. It may seem to take longer, but I have a hard time sewing small pieces of felt effectively on the machine.
I really hope those little vegetable don't get lost. I had a reader suggest attaching a ribbon to each vegetable so they don't get misplaced, and I think I will do that. They were a bit tedious to work up, I would be a shame to have to keep making more to replace the lost pieces.
