Faor the Love of Legends Day 4: Leprechauns, Mermaids, & Fairies

A classic American Legend we can’t ignore is Johnny Appleseed!  He is known for his kind, generous ways and of course for introducing apple trees to a large portion of the United States.  I learned about him as an elementary school student, but my own children have learned a little about him from books they have picked up from the library.  The library is one of our favorite places to go.  Our imaginations can run wild with stories of tall tales and far-fetched dreams.  We always leave with arms full of books so a new book tote was definitely in order!

I decided some free motion applique would make for a playful design without being too complicated.  Hey, I’m a mom of littles so fast projects are my favorite!
I discovered an adorable Johnny Appleseed printables packet created by In All You Do.  My preschooler loved the coloring pages and letter tracing practice.  I used a couple of the pages to creation some applique templates.  This was the perfect project to use up a few scraps from my bin and also cut into a few new fat quarters from the shop as well.

While Johnny was traveling the great land of North America he came across a few legends of his own.
