Today I spent a few hours cutting fabrics for apples. For kits and finished apples. There's a sort of process. Firstly I select sets of four different complimentary fabrics, wading through the stash, picking combinations, I love this part. Then there's the cutting, cutting matt, quilters ruler and rotary cutter at the handy, the only way. Cutting, cutting, cutting. I also cut the interfacing into strips, I've found it's easier to do use it this way.

From there it'll be a few hours fusing fabric strips to interfacing. Then tracing the apple pattern piece and then finally hand cutting all the pieces. At this point, I'll be wishing it was affordable to buy my own fabric diecutter with a custom die! Then, then I start sewing them all. I usually sew 10 to 20 at a time. Then stuff, stuff, stuff, insert the stem, hand sew the button on and felt leaves. Phew. Repeat over and again πŸ™‚ I'm not complaining, as long as they're wanted I'll make them.

Ok. Over and out. Happy Crafting!

    As a craft floozy who barely makes anything more than once, I am uber impressed. Especially since I am the lucky recipient of one such bit of apple goodness and can vouch for how perfectly made they are…
