Apple Sweaters!

I first spotted some adorable apple cozies on etsy, and I thought, "cute but silly"  Then I proceeded to wrap my apple in a paper towel to pad it in my work bag................  umm, not so silly after all!
I decided I could figure out how to make them myself since it seems like a good little take along project.  So I took some along last week (with the horrible coffee) to my Saturday job. 

Sure enough, I could figure it out!  I like to call them apple sweaters though, it makes me feel more accomplished to say I crocheted a sweater today.

I can die a happy woman because now I have seen it all. Apple sweaters!

Adorable. And sweet that you figured it out.

Are you going to sell them on Etsy - would love to know. :)

I've seen these before and thought they were a good idea. Clever you for figuring out how to make one!

Very cute!

Cute as can be! For practical purposes, I can really see how one of these would be especially helpful in transporting pears to work for lunch. No matter how careful I am, pears always look like they've been battered!

absolutely outstanding! i wrap my apple in a paper towel, too so i understand how they would be so protective of the apple. lol - one of my co-workers can't stand the sound of apple crunching so i have to be careful of when i eat my apple.
