Most of the papers in this layout are from the Scrapmuch Kit Club, October package. The kit contents were perfect for my 'apple' themed layout.
I first started by getting a sketch of an apple from the Silhouette store. I then used the Silhouette pen holder, but with a pencil, and had the Cameo draw the design for me. I lightly dropped the pencil into the holder so that it didn't draw out darkly. I wanted only a light drawn outline. Then it was a matter of threads and stitching.

My favourite embellishment was the one I made from a canning lid. It seemed an appropriate item to use.
I added a burlap circle, which I pulled some of the fibres off of (I put them at the top of the page), scrunched up the burlap a bit, added a button and some embroidery floss and there it was...done!
