Scrappy Apples


Are you ready? For autumn, I mean. The leaves are turning colors, the kids are in school, and there's a hint of crispness to the air. And one of my favorite things about autumn has arrived: Apples. Apple pies, apple cider, apple...pincushions...

So here you go!


My latest PDF Sewing Pattern, Scrappy Apple Pincushions & Ornaments, is hot out of the oven. The PDF contains full-size pattern pieces for both pincushions and ornaments, along with color photographs, lots of hints and tips, and complete text descriptions for each step. I've aimed to write my patterns so that even beginner sewists should be able to follow along, and as always, you are welcome to post questions (and photos!) in my flickr group, or just shoot me an e-mail.

I'm in love with these mini apple ornaments, they are so cute hanging on their "new" vintage mug tree (found on Etsy).

Don't you think apple ornaments would make excellent holiday teacher gifts this year *hint hint*? And for those of you non-sewists, I will try to list some apples in my shop, soon. As for the pattern, you know where to find it!


So let's get cracking...or peeling, as the case may be, and sew up some apples today!
