Just for fun we decided to team up once a month and create projects based on a common theme. This month’s theme is APPLES. It was fun coming up with my project, but even more fun to see the creative projects the other ladies made. Check it out:
After you are done here, head over and check out some of these other great APPLE projects. The links are all listed at the bottom of this post.
Okay–time to get back to the project, the FELT APPLE NOTEBOOK HUGGER.
Want to make your own? Here’s how:
Red, Green, White and Cream Felt
Note–I made three different versions of this project. The most involved is pictured above. The other two simple versions (red and green in top picture) are similar, minus the top two layers.
First, use the template provided cut out the pieces required: 2 large red apple pieces, one white smaller apple, one cream center and one leaf. Also, cut a piece of elastic so that it fits snuggly around a notebook.
Then, (1) use a running stitch to first, stitch the white apple onto a red apple piece.
Next, (2) place the small cream core piece on top and use 4 Lazy Daisy stitches to hold it in place.
Then, stitch the two red apple pieces together, with the elastic between the two pieces. Make sure that the elastic is stitched in securely.
Finally (3) Use a running stitch and green threat to attach the leaf to the elastic. I like how it looks with the leaf slightly disconnected from the apple.
And really, that’s it!
Thanks for being here–now head over the check out the other apple projects!
