Little Green Apples - Sew It Show It Challenge

This week is the "Little Green Apples Sew It Show It Challenge" Hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt. For this challenge we could sew something about apples, use apple fabric, or just use green fabric.  I went with the green fabric option and sewed something somewhat apple shape... sort of. 

I saw some cute Kinchaku bags pop up on Instagram and wanted to give them a try. When you pull them shut, scrunch them down a little, and use your imagination they could look like apples. 🍏 

There are lots of fun patterns and tutorials on the internet for these types of bags. 

I saw the pattern by Sweet Cinnamon Roses and loved how she did the bottom so I wanted to give it a try.

These would make cute little gifts to hand out for when someone needs a pick me up. They sew up really fast and you can use up scrap batting and fabric. Once you make the first one, you could probably sew up half a dozen in an afternoon and fill them with fun treats.

You could even put an apple in them along with other treats for a the teachers in your life.
