The Apple Cozy Christmas gift

I had to share my teacher gifts from this year. They came out so cute that I even gave them to friends and family for Christmas. Everyone LOVED them!

The apple cozy pattern I used is a FREE tutorial from Little Abbee. Check it out!

So here is what I did:

  1. I completed the apple cozy pattern from Little Abbee - I used Spud and Chloe sweater yarn for the red and a few different yarns for the greens. One was Red Heart Shimmer in green. Cottons work best for the red since it helps to build a firm shape for your apple. I added a cute button.
  2. Along with my organic granny smith apples, I also bought some organic caramel dip from Whole Foods. I wrapped it up in one of their recycled grocery bags, which was a way to save some extra money.
  3. I bought some cute ribbon (sparkles on left, dots on right), tied it up and added a nice gift tag.  
AND.....There you go! Very nice and affordable Christmas (or any time of the year) gift that your child's teachers will love.

Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
