Wow, it’s April already. So, as I was preparing for this week’s free pattern, I had other ideas until a couple of weeks ago when my husband and I were out at a beer tasting and I wore a pair of pineapple earrings I had made a couple of years ago. I love my pineapple earrings, I think they’re super adorable, but my husband said they didn’t look like pineapples. I got compliments that night from people at the tasting, they thought they were just as cute as I did but my husband’s opinion stayed in my head. With his teasing in mind, I decided to make a new pineapple design so I could share it with everyone this week. And because I love that you can coordinate your earrings with an applique, I wanted to include both here for you today!
