Told you I'd been crafty lately. Here's another project - a little gift for two special family visitors we had this week.
I'm sure you will have seen the fabulous new craft magazine Mollie Makes. Its just my sort of publication and there was so much inspiration in the first issue I didn't know what to make first. The second issue came out a few days ago and if possible it was better than the first! Anyway, enough of the promotion, I was just waiting for an excuse to make the crochet apple cosies featured on the cover of issue one and as our visitors are great travellers I thought they would be perfect little gifts.
They were quick and easy to make but there is one tip I can pass on if you are going to have a go - get your apples first to make sure you are making a cosy that will fit! I made the mistake of not doing that and ended up unravelling my first cosy and starting again with a larger hook as the apples I bought were too big!
And as the girls are great readers too I made some apple themed bookmarks to match using my bookmark die and an apple stamp set and die.
