Nothing says “made with love” more than a warm pie fresh from the oven. Here is a pattern for a Deep Dish Apple Pie Applique just waiting to warm hearts and tummies!
This morning I received this request from one of our readers: “I want to make an apron with the picture of a pie on the front. I haven’t been able to find a picture of that. I am very good at sewing but lousy at drawing !!! I would love to have a pattern so I can add that to the front of the apron for a Christmas gift. If you can help with that it would be so appreciated. Thanks Chris” So, here it is, Chris, a Deep Dish Apple Pie Applique!
Actually, this was perfect timing! It’s been a while since I designed an applique and so this was a perfect excuse to make one. Also, with next week being Thanksgiving Day here in the the states, pie is pretty much a ubiquitous item on the dinner table. In our house pumpkin pie and deep dish apple pie are a must. So, thanks for asking, Chris. BTW… I want pictures of your apron when you are done!
The Deep Dish Pie Applique was made to fit on a 6″ x 6″ block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. Enjoy!
