it's been a little crazy

around my house...
camp, visitors, cleaning, cooking, children
summer, school (not elementary, med)
crafting, etsy, birthdays, the daily grind, blah blah blah

you get the drill

so i needed a little release and what better way to have
a litte R & R than by crafting?!

i know school is about to start again and i needed a little something for
the end of summer/september month so i came up with this...

meet "A is for Apple"

so so easy
just grab an apple template
and cut out your felt piece
(and this can be done with ANY shape)
embroidered it onto fabric of your choice
next, i glued on the stem and leaf

then i thought it needed a little
something to offset the perfect centered apple
so i grabbed some linen, shredded the sides a bit
and stitched the words "learn"
throw it into your favorite glass-less (is that a word?)
frame and voila. you have some new school/september decor
