It's Off!


So it took a while, but I'm done and it's off in the mail. I LOVE this apron - it was hard to part with it! It's a little bit funky, a little bit girly, and ready for some serious cookin!
















The apron is reversible, so it has 2 different looks.


















This little brooch is my favorite part!!! I found some huge snaps at the craft store and I stitched them on in order for the apron to be washable, as well as for the brooch to be worn on both sides of the apron.

I had so much fun, despite the crazy, hectic world swirling all around me! And, as we speak, I've got family visiting so I'm off to go play!

Sorry, but Helga's comment is really mine. I wasn't logged in on my own blog, just helping her to create her new blog. She would very much like to have the apron as well.

How cute and what a clever idea for the flower. I may have to try that on one of my aprons.

Darling. Seeing all of the beautiful aprons makes me sad that I didn't join the swap. I knew I would never have the time to make one. I will definitely be joining in your next one.

I'm new to your blog. Adorable ideas. I would love to try to sew. I'm horrible at it, but you've given me new hope. Your site is beautiful.

Your apron pattern is so cute. Love it. Your blog is cute.

We use to shop in Thatcher when I was growing up. I lived for 8 years in Morenci, AZ. Not many people know where that is.

Keep the cute stuff a coming. I have been inspired.

Love your apron..Did you use a pattern? Which one? Can you give directions? especially for the snap on brooch. Wouldn't that be great for a little girls dress too?

I'm looking forward to seeing the next one.
