Comparing fruit to sewing is like comparing apples to oranges and yet we have brought these two things together in a fruity sewing kit that’s cute enough to eat. It’s got everything you need: a pincushion, a zipper pouch for notions, and an optional needle pad, all buttoned up in a tasty package. Take your pick from a red delicious apple with an embroidered core or a zesty orange with playful appliqué.
This style is provided as a digital pattern. It may be printed on both home printers (using either 8 1/2" x 11" or A4 paper) and at service bureaus that handle 36" wide sheets. When you complete your order, you will be provided with a unique code to instantly download the pattern. See our Downloadable Patterns FAQs for full details.
