Cherry Pie

No, I’ve never baked a real cherry pie. Crochet version will have to do!

I actually started this like a year go and stuffed it onto the “finish me” shelf. The woven top took FOREVS to sew on. I need to think about a different way to approach it to keep the cost down. Oh wait. I just thought of one. Note to self!!!!

I am going to put this up on Etsy next week. I’m considering doing a limited pre-/custom order on it. I can also offer bluberry pie! Like I might list 5 available and ask for 2-3 weeks to ship the order. What do you think?

Also coming soon: more burger mitts!

    oh lordy lord i just might have to attempt to snatch this one up! Thank god I have allergies because that would make for my 4TH cozie!

      Haha you’re my hero!! It’s my dream to gather a bunch and just have a craft show booth selling only tissue cozies. But honestly, they don’t do that well at craft fairs…it is just my own personal dream 😛 😛

      • kimmi says:

        That’s sad to hear because they are my absolute favorite item of yours, I loved when you displayed them on cake stands! IT’S THREE DIMENSIONAL FAKE FOOD! WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE?? BUY THESE THINGS PEOPLE!! 😀

        I just thought of why I need this pie cozie even more…my new apartment has a window over the sink and I keep saying “IM GONNA COOL MY PIES ON THAT LEDGE!!”

    theres this fabric glue out that i’ve recently tried, i’ve already put a personal garment through the wash multiple times and it hasn’t budged! it holds on these crazy heavy roses i sewed from fabric with a giant pearl in the middle.. atm i don’t remember the name, but it dries clear. i’ll let you know what its called later. seriously i love it.

    • Twinkie Chan says:

      I’m definitely curious!! I always feel bad if I have to use glue…. like it’s cheap or a cop-out. But sometimes it seems like the discount on labor is worth it for customers!

      • amber says:

        i wouldn’t feel bad. i don’t use it often, mostly to hold together knots or small pieces and things. but honestly, if you do it right, no one will even know the difference!

  5. I was just telling someone the other day how cherry pie is my favorite pie! This is too cute!

  6. Kelsey says:

    Oooh, I would definitely pre-order one if I can get to it in time! I love the cake ones, too.

  7. Lydia says:

  11. sue says:

    Very cute! I think I will try to make these this year for Xmas presents since I overwhelmed everyone with hats last year. I would be interested to know what the glue is too!

  12. Maggi says:

    this is so perfect and sweet and nice.
    maybe we will have a box like that here soon :)

  15. This is totally cute! Maybe make a strawberry one, too. Is this a tissue box holder? It looks like a tissue is the whipped cream. (There is an idea, if it’s not already!)

  16. Michele says:

    OMG! Cute! I bet grabbing a tissue to blow your nose from this cozy would make you hungry. *crickets*

    Hi Twinkie Chan!

    Would you recommend using hot glue instead of weaving/sewing pieces together?
