Angry Apple Cozy!



Does your apple need protection from thieves and other villians? If the answer is yes, then the Angry Apple Cozy is just the man you need. This tough hombre means business - and has the mustache to prove it. With this guy on your side, nobody will come between you and your apple a day. I worked this guy up last night and I'm really pleased with how he came out. And of course I'm sharing the pattern! Here's the Ravelry Link.
