Fruit shapes seem to go so naturally with kitchen dcor. This scrubby actually reminded me of those painted plaster shapes (pear, apple, plum, etc) that seemed to be in every kitchen in the 1950s. I can remember contributing a few Brownie Scout projects to my moms kitchen. This simple project uses a minimum amount of Scrubby yarn so these would be great for bazaar sales, too.

How cute is this?! What a great craft fair item that can be made on the cheap for you, to maximize your earnings! I'm guessing you could make 6 of these with the same 2 balls of yarn. You make one side cotton and the other side the scrubby yarn. I appreciate the story behind the pear obsession, too. Apples are a great one to make to go along side the pears. Perhaps, make a set and tie it up with twine and there you have it- a unique handmade gift.
