Cross Stitched Apple Earrings

By: Alexandra Richards from
Cross Stitched Apple Earrings
Cross Stitched Apple Earrings

"I love the look of cross stitched items, but me and Aida cloth don't get a long too well. I created my own cloth to stitch on (crocheted), and cross stitched a fun apple on it. This is perfect for back to school, teacher gift, or fall. You can change out the apple color, and background color to suit your preference – maybe you want it on a black background to simulate a chalkboard, or perhaps you love green apples more than red. Materials You'll Need: Small Amount of #10 Crochet Thread for Base, Small Amounts of Embroidery Floss for Apple, B2mm Crochet Hook, Tapestry Needle, Small Piece of #10 Plastic Canvas Mesh, Earring Wires, Jump Rings and Jewelry Pliers. Time Needed: About an hour. Abbreviations You'll Need to Know: SC - Single Crochet."
