The kids are going back-to-school and the Fall season is right around the corner. This is the perfect time to whip up some apple themed craft projects or recipes! I am thrilled today to be teaming up with some of #myfavoritebloggers to bring you some fun and simple apple project ideas and yummy treats.
I’d love to introduce them to you:

Just for fun we decided to team up once a month and create projects based on a common theme. This month’s theme is APPLES. After you are done looking at my crochet apple keychains, head over and check out some of these other great APPLE projects. The links are all listed at the bottom of this post.
I am going to show you how to make these super easy Crochet Apple Slice Keychains! Give them as a gift to a teacher, friend or use them for yourself 🙂 They could also be used as a backpack zipper pull for the kids!
Let’s start with the pattern.
– Worsted weight yarn in white or cream and red or green. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Scarlet (red) and Fern (green)
– Size H or G crochet hook (H for slightly larger apples)
– Tapestry needle
– Key rings
– Brown felt (and green felt if you want to make a leaf)

Very cute! You make it look so easy – I just need to sit down and learn to crochet so I can make all this fun stuff!
Tara @ Suburble says
Sarah – I love this! I want it sooo much! (and I think I could tackle this one – I'm a novice crocheter, but I'm eager!)
Marilyn Clark says
Sarah, I've been holding my breath for this pattern! LOVE it!
Chiwei @ One Dog Woof says
You are seriously amazing. I was wondering how you did the half circle, never thought it was a full circle folded in half! Genius lady.

Just pinned this! Now, can anybody tell me how I can make an apple pie out of this? 🙂
All I see is pink centers, dark green boarder & black seeds. My daughter is a freak for anything Watermelon. These are perfect. They are cute as apples, too. But Watermelon will be the biggest hit in my family. Thanks for the inspiration.
