Apples are the classic lunch fruit. They are sweet, juicy, and mother approved. Perhaps it is these attributes which targets apples for lunchbox bullying. Anytime I try to carry an apple in my purse or lunch sack, it seems like everything else in the purse wants to attack it. A cute cozy on your apple can protect its delicate skin, and add a bit of style to your lunch presentation. Here are some free patterns for apple cozies.
