Here's a new twist on the ever-popular "apple for the teacher" gift theme - a crocheted purse with a beaded apple motif.

This bag combines two popular crochet techniques - Tunisian crochet and beaded crochet. To put the finishing touches on the apple, you also get to try a bit of cross stitch. Tunisian crochet offers a unique surface for working cross stitch designs.
