Yesterday was my dear friend Kim's birthday. Even though it is the "year of the tote," I made her a tote last year. I decided that I would make her an apron. You know when you have a project all planned out in your head: what fabric you are going to use and how it's going to look and then you go to the fabric store and can't find the fabric? Well, that's what happened to me. I knew I wanted black and white with red rickrack, but I had a specific fabric in mind. I went to buy it and it wasn't there. I studied the fabrics and found the runner up: Alexander Henry "Diamond Eye." It's a little bold, but I think I like it (and I surely hope Kim does, too). I added red, jumbo rickrack to the bottom. Happy birthday, Kim. (In this picture, the wind is blowing from behind making the apron look a little more poofy than in real life.)
My WIP's for this weekend are (from top left): baby jacket, bib, diaper case for a baby shower next weekend; a cape and crown for my nephew's birthday; and a birthday surprise that cannot be revealed.
And, I was just recently informed that Mothers Day is around the corner. Yikes!
What are your plans for Mothers Day gifts?
