Mollie Makes -- I'm Lovin' It

I was first introduced to Mollie Makes from the delightful Dottie Angel.

I had bought this Mollie Makes magazine a couple of days before my husband's foot got infected this summer.  As I was running out the door to go visit him in the hospital, I grabbed the magazine and then ran to my sewing room to grab a crochet hook and some yarn.

I had no idea what size hook or gauge of yarn was called for...I just grabbed because I was in a hurry.

And, of course I pulled an apple out of the refrigerator :)

So when my little gals were home with their big sister and my husband slept in the hospital, I crocheted.  And, it was a great stress reliever and diversion.

This is actually very old string and not yarn, always love string.

It took me a few weeks to get the buttons sewed on and then longer to get the pictures taken!
Now, "Why would apples need jackets?" you may ask.

"Why not?"

They are just too cute!

If you are new to Mollie Makes, you can find their site here.  The magazine is available at Barnes and Noble and Joann Fabrics in the United States or by subscription.  I did a search for used copies on Ebay and the prices were kind of surprising!
(I may sell mine after all my apples are cozy!) 

I love creative videos.

The jackets also fit oranges!  But, that's just silly, why would an orange need a jacket?!

I'm linking up this week with Tidy Mom's I'm Lovin' It Friday blog party, because I'm lovin' these Apple Jackets and Mollie Makes!


  1. Adorable! I can find them at JoAnne's Fabric stores as well.

  2. Thanks Linda, I edited the post to include JoAnne's too now.

  3. I too was smitten with the cozy jackets for fruit when a quilting friend showed off her copy of Mollie Makes...funny enough I just bought two issues at JoAnn Fabrics the other for me and one as a birthday gift for a friend

    anyway...I think it's great how things connect again and again here in really make me want to get out my crochet hooks too...your fruit pics are splendid

    I've been a little lazy in the summer heat we've had!

    Happiest of August weekends to you and yours Jill

  9. Apples need jackets cuz they fall down and hurt themselves ... Oranges - I think they're pretty indestructible ... Super cute though. That would be a cool surprise in the lunch boxes :)

  10. I've had my eye out for this mag since it started! I managed to pick up a copy in an English bookshop in Paris! it didn't disappoint, a feel good factor of 100% I see a new tiny detail everytime I look, I couldn't make half of what's in there but it's just so yummy! Mx


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit!
