An Apron for My Mom

I've finally gotten around to sharing the last Christmas gift that I made this year. I made this easy, "no seams exposed" apron for my mother...


Isn't it cute? I love the long ties on it. I'm thinking I'm going to have to make one for myself soon. I followed this tutorial from Stitches in Play. This is one of those great "didn't take very long but looks like a million bucks" gifts, so I highly recommend this tutorial :) I have it pinned here if you want to add it to your pin board.


The fabrics are from Denyse Schmidt's Daisy Mae and Sugar Creek collections at Jo-Ann's. My mother's favorite color is blue, so this was a perfect choice. I added a little twill tape tag at the waistband...


Around here... we're still licking our wounds after Sunday's loss :( Next week I'll be sharing my youngest's 2nd birthday party and some gifts that I made for her. And thanks to all of the great responses I got to this post about the end of Picnik, I'm planning to put together a post on some of the alternatives that are available. Look for that later this month. Happy Wednesday!

LOVE it! I actually carried the main skirt fabric you used around JoAnns when I was shopping a couple of weeks ago. It made a perfect apron. Great job!

That is a great apron tutorial, so professional. Your gift turned out beautiful - aprons are my one of my favourite gifts, especially for people who love fabric and the kitchen. Great job. I definitely will try that tutorial.
