Teacher Gifts: Crocheted Apple Jackets

I just remembered I forgot to post a picture of what I finally settled on for end of year teacher gifts for my children's teachers! I made them these killer cute apple jackets! I thought it was a clever twist on the "apple" theme for teachers :) I also made their two primary teachers home-baked double chocolate brownies ... yum!end of year teacher gift crochet apple cotton apple jacketApple jackets are an attractive protective "garment" to keep your fruit from getting bruised and damaged when tossed into your bag for later consumption. Made in a durable cotton yarn, these can be washed and used over and over again for many lunches.end of year teacher gift crochet apple cotton apple jacketI can't tell you how cute these all looked lined up on the kitchen counter ready to gift. After I took these shots, I made leaf shaped gift tags out of lime green paper for my kids to write a short message on and then attached them with ribbon to the apple jacket.
