I found this super cute pattern to make some apple coasters for a Christmas gift. I have all the individual pieces done (apples, stems, and leaves), but now I dont know what would be the best way to attach them to each other. The instructions just say "sew stem and leaf to top of apple." I searched online but could only find how to join granny square edges together, which is different bc these pieces lay on top of each other. Do I really use a needle and thread to sew them on? Huh

Thanks for any help! Smiley

When I make things like this I leave a long tail, I use that tail and a yarn needle to sew the pieces to each other. I do a running stitch to tack it down.
Here is a video of what I am talking about

If you didn't leave the extra "tails", don't fret it. You can just thread a LARGE EYE needle with corresponding yarn color (no knot but leave enough to tie when you come back around to that tail end), and go from there the same as the tutorial shared. Then when you get back around tie a knot on the back side and weave the tail ends in of your new stitching/attachment in. Those coasters look like a neat project! Great idea for using up extra yarn. Remember...apples are not always RED!  Cheesy

OOhhh, oooo, ooo. Queen of afterthought...how about using these as embelishments for an apron, or makeing them larger into potholder/trivet type things?
