Comparing fruit to sewing is like comparing apples to oranges and yet we have brought these two things together in a fruity sewing kit that’s cute enough to eat. It’s got everything you need: a pincushion, a zipper pouch for notions, and an optional needle pad, all buttoned up in a tasty package. Take your pick from a red delicious apple with an embroidered core or a zesty orange with playful appliqué.
