    Aprons

    I made these two aprons for Christmas gifts. They are for my step-mom and step-sister. We are having our Christmas tomorrow since I had surgery last week.

    I used this pattern but made a few changes to fit my preferences.

    Thanks for taking a peek.

    In addition to being such pretty fabrics, you stuffed the pockets with useful gifts that they can always use. You did a great job.

    great gifts, came out pretty
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Those are SO neat!!! Will have to make my DIL one (and me too!). When you look at that site at the pattern, read the text in the right column: "THINGS WE NEVER THOUGHT WE'D SAY BUT WE HAVE....." Sound familiar??

    Thank you ladies. My sister wants a second one so she can have one at work. She works at a nursery and is always out pruning and clipping, says it will be great to carry her tools in. The first one is for at home. She is quite the crafter and is currently making her own one of a kind pendants so I thought it would come in handy when she is doing that. I have to make one for my niece too. Since they are super fast and easy, they are on my to do list for tomorrow.
