December Apron

Did you think I could make twelve aprons in one year?  Here's the last one for this year, but there will probably be some show up now and then next year too, just because I love to make them.

Last summer, Carolyn (www.leeprairiedesigns.blogspot.com) sent one of her apron patterns to me.  Also included were three applique patterns for the apron(s).  I waited until I had ordered the perfect fabric from Connecting Threads to make this butcher style apron, then I chose to use the "Merry Christmas" applique.

It was such fun to make!  Thank you, Carolyn!  Isn't it nice when talented blogging friends share their patterns and ideas with us?  To see more of her work visit her blog; she makes sweet things!

Now, what to do in 2014....

  3. I thought you might surprise us with a Christmas apron. This little apron is just perfect for the holidays. The fabric looks like peppermint candy, and the applique like colorful gumdrops dancing across the front. You just must wear this one when serving Christmas dinner!

  4. , those letters must of been time consuming and are really nice looking
    Looking forward to seeing your 2014 projects.
    I would like to make 12 quilts but realistically it is not likely.

  11. oh dear, it just dawned on me that you are in Arkansas and I assume you in the path of this heavy ice storm coming your way.
    I hope it is not as bad as predicted but if it is, I am guessing you may be without power for a long stretch.
    Hope to hear from you soon after the storm so you can let us know how you are.
