Kristen TenDyke - Pear Cozy

  Fruit Cozies  
  How many times have you thrown a banana into your lunch bag only to find it bumped, bruised, and smushed by the time you get to eat it? This has happened to me enough times to inspire this week’s project. It all started with the banana cozy. Then I thought, “Why not protect all my favorite fruits?” So, the pear and apple cozies were born.
