Here’s a free pattern for a beaded crochet apple motif. You can use this beaded apple as an applique on the project of your choice; it’s a great way to dress up purses, bags, totes, art quilts, wall hangings, collages or similar projects.

I used my sample apple to create this apple purse.

Materials Used in the Project Sample:

  • Red and Pink Bead Mix: I used a mix of beads that vary slightly in size. There are approximately 10 beads per inch when they are strung. On average, they measure 2.5 – 3.0 mm each, but some are larger and some are smaller.

  • Pale Green Bicone Beads: These measure about 5.5 – 6.0 mm each.

  • Embroidery Floss: One skein each in the following colors:

    • Red
    • Hot Pink
    • Green
  • Silver colored craft wire

  • Crochet Hooks: Size D / 3-3.25 mm and 6 / 1.80mm steel hook

  • Tapestry needle

  • Scissors

Beaded Crochet Technique

I've prepared a tutorial demonstrating the beaded crochet technique. If you're not already familiar with this technique, I recommend reading the tutorial prior to working this pattern. This apple motif is designed using the beaded crochet technique explained in the tutorial.
