The forest needs the fire like the fire needs the tree
I whipped up two of these cuties in a week for teacher gifts. Yes, it’s a nifty way to wrap the traditional apple — but it’s also a useful fruit protector in a lunchbox, keeping bumps and bruises away from tender produce. Slip a gift card in there, and you’ve got utility and charm all in one.
The yarn was a skein left over from my Red Scarf Project scarf last year. I still have about 20 yards left, after making two. When I was setting up for this little photo shoot, Cady Gray excitedly observed, “You made a yarn pot for an apple!”
Wouldn’t you want an angelic little preschool girl to give you one?
