I love apples! They’re wonderful to decorate with and who doesn’t love the shape! The mini-apple pomander is a fun way to create a hanging potpourri holder for the closet to adding to a lingerie drawer. But it has other uses too – can you think of some?

Mini-Apple Pomander About Description Pattern in PDF Format
I designed this little pomander years ago out of my love for apples. I enjoy eating them, but I think I love decorating with them more. I love the shapes, the colors, how they represent fall and nothing is as pretty as bowl filled with apples that are bright, shiny and delicious. I hope you enjoy this pomander!

This pattern is in text format and written in English. The pomander is worked in rows.
