1. Download the FREE Citrus Pattern designed by Bee Sew Inspired. You can choose either the PDF Pattern to hand cut your shapes, or the SVG Cut File and follow the directions to have your Cricut Maker cut the felt shapes. Make sure to use your rotary blade and set the fabric to felt.

2. To make a Citrus Wedge: cut 1 main circles and all 8 inner triangles from the main felt citrus color and 1 inner circle from the white felt. To make a Citrus Slice: cut 2 main circles and all 8 inner triangles from the main felt citrus color and 1 inner circle from the white felt.

3. Fold the white felt circle in quarters and finger press the folds. This will help with placement of the citrus triangles. Open the white felt circle again.

4. Layout the triangles on evenly spaced on the white felt as shown. Use the fold creases as a guide for even spacing and centering.

5. Using your Fabric Fuse Fabric Adhesive, place a few drops in the center back of each triangle piece. Firmly press in place. Leave to dry for a few hours on a flat surface. This step will allow you to have perfectly placed triangles when you go to hand stitch without shifting or threads getting caught on pins.

6. Using 2-3 strands of coordinating embroidery floss, thread your hand sewing needle and tack down each triangle citrus segment. You can use your a tiny running stitch, blanket stitch or your favorite hand embroidery stitch around the perimeter of each triangle segment.

7. Next, using your Fabric Fuse Fabric Adhesive, glue the wrong side of the white, stitched circle to the center of one of the larger main citrus circles. Repeat the hand stitching around the white perimeter in white thread.
