Hello friends, this is Jennifer Long from Sew A Story, a fabric designer with Riley Blake Designs and a doll and quilt pattern designer. And I have a fun tutorial to share today!

An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Create your own stuffed fabric apple using fabric scraps and fun hand- or machine-stitching! Add a cute felt leaf and a cinnamon or twig stick for a cute decor item!

This pattern uses templates and is beginner-friendly. You can make these apples scrappy using all your favorite fabrics, or choose one or two prints for a coordinated look! Bonus: This pattern comes with templates to make the apples in three sizes, and I’m offering free SVG cut files to use with your die cutter!
