Fabric Fruit

I love Japanese craft books. I bought Patchwork Quilt for Interior a few years ago in San Francisco at Kinokuniya Book Stores

1581 Webster Street, San Francisco, CA, United States

Fabric apples.
I made fabric pears and apples from the book's instructions, which are easy to follow although I do not read Japanese, as there are clear schematics, templates and measurements in metric.
