All Caught Up…

With my crafts at least! I just mailed my last apron a couple of days ago, so I thought I would post some pictures now that I won’t be ruining any surprises.

This picture is my first attempt to make a crafting apron. I think I took this one apart four or five times before I was satisfied that it would actually be useful and still cute. I also thought this would make a great apron for handling money in a garage sale or craft sale.

I also put off posting this picture because I was sure someone would notice my growing belly and figure out I was pregnant. I was doing some serious sucking in for this picture. That was almost two months ago and there is no amount of sucking in that would hide it now!

After taking forever to figure out the first one, the rest were fairly easy to make. I really like how functional these ones are and I think they turned out especially cute.

I had a lot of fun making this curvy one and almost kept it for myself! Of course I wouldn’t think of that during the holidays, but maybe now… 🙂 It seemed to have more of a retro look to it, so it was perfect for my little brother’s wife. Well, on Christmas day she was his still his girlfriend, but one week later (with two days notice) she became his wife! We were so happy to be in town for the big event and are even more happy to welcome “T” to our family. She fits right in, though she makes me and my sisters look even shorter!

Here is a picture of some of the aprons being modeled on Christmas day. I hope everyone enjoys their aprons as much as I enjoyed making them. Really. Morning sickness and all these were really a pleasure to design and make. I think I was more excited about giving these gifts than anything else. Even sharing our little surprise that morning!

On a side note, a few of you have asked about the possibility of me starting an etsy apron shop. I’m really thinking about it and would love for any of you who have run your own shop to share your experiences or thoughts. If you have any other comments or suggestions, I would love to hear that as well!

    Okay, you HAVE to open a shop. A towel on an apron? GENIUS. Seriously.

    I loved my apron. It made my whole week. Thank you very much for making it for me. (Mine looks like– or is– the pink one on the right.)

    Pregnant? No way. Even knowing that you are, and were, I still can’t tell in the pictures. 🙂

    K-I’m so glad you like it! and believe me if you saw me in an apron now you can totally tell! I wish the towel in the apron was my original idea…

  2. Your aprons are AWESOME! And I would totally buy one if you opened a shop. Totally.

    K-Wow, thank you. I think I’ll be making some more of these pretty soon! 🙂
