Nothing beats a handmade teacher gift to show your gratitude for a year well-taught. These adorable cross stitch Kawaii apples work up super quick, making them a perfect and thoughtful year-end gift. 

If you want the kids to do the stitching, we have given you three different size options. The largest apple worked on fabric with bigger holes is appropriate for younger children, while the smaller versions would work for older kids.
