Happy Sunday to you all!
I had a lovely, relaxing day today. And that included some fun sewing time!
These cute little apples are from the genius creativity of Kim Kruzich aka Retro Mama.
She designs the cutest patterns, and her book is called 'Scrap Happy Sewing' - ahhhh, a girl after my own heart!
I'd seen these adorable apples (& pears) on Instagram, and found the pattern in Retro Mama's Etsy shop.
There are 2 sizes included in the pattern. I've made the 'ornament' size, finishing at only 3.75" tall (including stem). The larger 'pincushion' apple finishes at 4.5" tall (including stem).
I made these all from small scraps, and the smallest pieces of felt. It took longer to blanket stitch the stem and leaves than it did to sew up the apples!
It's a really clever pattern - just look at those dimply bottoms!
As a pattern writer, I appreciate and enjoy using a well written pattern, especially when it produces the same results as the picture (wish I could say the same for my baking!!).
So if you need a new pincushion, teacher's gift, or an adorable apple ornament, then this is the pattern for you!
