Apple of My Eye Apple Cozy – Free Pattern

Apple of My Eye Crochet Apple Cozy - Free Pattern | www.thestitchinmommy.com
My sweet little girl started preschool this week! It was so hard to watch my baby go off into the world on her own. It took everything I had to not break down and run after her when I dropped her off. She was super excited and didn’t even say goodbye to me! It’s difficult to watch her grow up but at the same time, it is great to know that she is ready to be independent and will be using all that I have taught her in a real-world application. Being the mom that I am, I couldn’t let her go off to school empty-handed. And of course, being the mom that I am, I had to make something! I created this adorable little apple cozy for her teacher, who absolutely loved it! She couldn’t thank me enough which made me feel a lot better 🙂 I hope you enjoy the pattern! Happy crocheting!
