My Most Favorite Apron! (To Date Anyay..)



My most favorite apron creation to date!! I bought this fabric back in September because it reminded me of my friend Shannon...she loves all things cake. Plus, she had made an apron for me for my birthday so I wanted to return the favor. I was waiting around to find the perfect pattern...I finally found one last weekend. I think this is perfect for her...I love the little flounce at the bottom!



During the planning process I found some cute green gingham in my stash that went perfectly with the cupcakes. Then the light bulb went on! How about a little applique!?! So I carefully cut out 3 of the cutest cupcakes from a scrap of material and adhered them to the pocket. I think it turned out pretty darn cute (if I do say so myself). She was at work when I dropped it off at her house last night so I am not sure what she thinks...I hope she loves it!
I also realized that I would really like a dressform so in the future I can properly display my projects...I rigged one out of my ironing board and some creative pinning:) I am definitely putting a dressform on my Christmas list for 2008!
