Mystery Apple Dress



This one is a funny one. I got this at a swap meet... its not too old but the embroidery tells me of some history.

Please take a guess as to what the brown thing hanging out of the apple is. I am so confused. The worm is walking towards it...so I don't think it's a worm...or is it?

Let me know your thoughts on this piece.

here is the etsy forum about it:

Is it his brother cut in half?

oh it's obvious what that is.

it's a band-aid.

or like keys and memories said - his brother cut in half.

The one in the apple is a tape worm.. the one walking to it is a regular worm. This is not an apple I would eat.

I love what everyone came up with. I REALLY LIKED: SCARF.

i suppose scarf is good.

afterall, what else would fit a naked worm? other than a hat.
