Funky Aprons

My friend, Kristi, custom ordered two aprons and placed her order in my most favorite way. She told me which fabric lines she really liked and then left the rest up to me. That's really the process I prefer as opposed to me just being a seamstress for hire where the customer tells me how to do every single little detail. I have a really hard time completing a custom order that doesn't allow for some creativity on my part. But since Kristi was nice enough to give me some freedom, I easily finished these within days of receiving the fabric.














































I think these would make a great Christmas gift. Picture the wearer's first initial monogrammed on one of the pockets...how cute would that be? Ooooo, perfect for a teacher's gift. Excellent, now I know what I'm giving to Bella's preschool teachers this year. Someone remind me of that in two months when I remember that I had an idea but can't remember what it was.

Also, for those wondering, I probably won't be listing any new items during this weekend's sale. I fully intended to sew yesterday but Tate decided to skip her nap so I was forced to snuggle:) I'm giving myself the weekend off and Crafty Papa has been nice enough to take the day off on Monday so I can have a vacation day from stay at home mom duties for my birthday. Don't hate me because I have an awesome husband.
