Now that the apples are in the farmer markets; why not make “Molly’s Sketchbook: Felt Apple Coasters from Purl Bee” to place your frosty or hot cider drinks on. Make one or all of her versions, they are so adorable. When Molly was a kid she dreaded the day that she would start seeing commercials for school supplies and her mom would suggest they go buy a new backpack. But these days, with first-days-of-school far behind her, she actually looks forward to this time of year more than any other. She loves the crisp weather, the foliage, her birthday, and she really loves apples! Since apples are so quintessentially Autumn and because they’re so graphically appealing, she was inspired to celebrate this beautiful time of year with a super cute set of Apple Coasters. They’ll add a barrel of autumnal cheer to any table! Or start your kid’s school year off right with the perfect teacher gift.
