assembly line apple making

Last night I made fabric apples. Aren't they the cutest? I bought this pattern by Retro Mama a while back. After reading the directions and realizing that I had to first prep and hand stitch the stem and the leaf, the pattern was put aside. I just was not in the mood.

A few days ago I realized that these little cuties could make really nice presents for my children's teachers. School is out in a week, so it was time to dig in.

I hand stitched all the leaves and stems while waiting for my kids at their guitar lessons and last night I finally cut all the fabric out.

I made all 8 apples last night while watching TV. I think they look really adorable but I'm so glad I don't have to make any more of them. 8 at one time is all I can possibly handle.

How about you, what have you been up to lately?
