We’re getting ready for apple season in my neck of the woods and what better way to celebrate than with some fun apples projects!

I have teamed up with some of #myfavoritebloggers (who also happen to be some of my favorite ladies!) to do a monthly themed project. And this month is apples

 

Before I show you my project, let me introduce you to the ladies … They are, from left to right, top down: Kristen from One Tough Mother, Sky from Creative Captial B, Marilyn from 4 You with Love, Tara from Suburble, Bethany from Pitter and Glink, Melanie from It Happens in a Blink, Me:), ChiWei from One Dog Woof, Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me, Kadie from 7 Alive, Nancy from Small Things with Love, and Amy from One Artsy Mama.

 

You can find links to all of their lovely projects at the bottom of this post so make sure to pop over and check them out.

So, want to see my apple project? I worked up this fun apple cozy … not only are these cute to use but they do help keep apples from getting bruised while bouncing around in backpacks, lunchboxes, and briefcases.

    Absolutely adorable! I’m a little sad, having moved from Upstate New York, because that was serious apple country this time of year. I’m working on an apple pair of earrings, hopefully they will be done soon. Perhaps, next… a pie? I real apple pie, not earrings. 😀

    • Kara August 15, 2013 at 5:53 pm #

      Oh yes, upstate NY is beautiful this time of year! Apple earrings sound so cute too 🙂
