Teacher Gift

it's so hard to come up with a hand made teacher gift every year.
i am thankful that i am surrounded by creative people and my sister is definetly one of them!
she came up with the idea of an apple pincushion.

we ended up making the apple from heather bailey's pattern. we wanted to package it in a clear acetate box from garnish {LOVE that store!}, so we cut the pattern down by a 1/4 inch and used a piece of branch from the plum tree for the stem instead {we were short on time} the leave pins are from joann fabrics. and some grass, ribbon, tulle and a felt apple tag {made with a cricut} and your good to go.
{for next year , of course!}
hope everyone survived the many parties, graduations, promotions and late nights that go along with this time of the year! happy summer!
