for a dear friend. We don't usually exchange gifts and to tell you that I surprised her YEP, I DID... She loved it. YAY....Not everyone likes what I call fancy aprons - they choose the work aprons like in the blog header. But I had a feeling this was Josy all over. Pic of the fabrics I made it with:
It came out really adorable. I used the black as the apron itself, the white and black for the ruffle, pockets and ties. I need to make me one, lol....
I made the smock for my SIL. She and I both love these and they are hard to find. Dang, I couldn't even find a pattern for one. I had a couple smocks kicking around that belonged to my mom 40 years ago and they literally are falling apart as I have used them so much as did she. I took one apart and made a pattern and this is what I came up with. This time I made one for me!
She is also getting this:
Recognize the fabric, lol.... Gotta use it up, right.... The embroidery is so cool with this fabric.
Then came Annie my niece, She said she likes cats.
The cat applique comes from Fat Cat patterns...
Next apron is going to Yvette, my other niece. I am working on a bird apron for her. " AND THEN, ALONG CAME JONES".... Not really, ME.... I want to get stitching up something for my house. I need to make some roman shades for the LR... And finish those dang placemats.....
What are you busy stitching?
Till next time, LJ
