Finished Gift

I know 2 posts in one day! I sometimes have a hard time getting one post a week, but it was a must that I finish this little project, because it is a gift that will be going with me to Maine. I am the family seamstress, and I  enjoy making these little aprons for gifts. I made several last Christmas, and they make a very unique gift. This is actually for my daughter to give, along with a family recipe book that she has made. I have even surprised myself and realized that I can add this to DIY day over at A Soft Place To Land.



I know this is a little blurry, but here is shot of the whole apron.



There is still a little time to enter the giveaway, and I just noticed I am coming up on 200 posts. That just might mean another giveaway is right around the corner! Have a wonderful evening.

I adore this. Love the pleats and color especially. And I find myself pining for an apron lately, so perhaps it's time to go and look through a pattern book.

Thanks for sharing!

Your family is very creative!
This apron will be accepted with joy. What a great gift.
I'm excited for you to get on that plane. My favorite part of flying is the take-offs. Enjoy!

I LOVE this apron!!! Can picture myself whipping up some fabulous treat wearing this baby (or even just opening a can of soup would be more pleasant!) Nice!
