What I made, Part 1

Well, since I've been MIA in the blogging world since before Thanksgiving, I guess I better tell you what I've been up to. Sewing. Sewing. Sewing. Sewing. Sewing..... you get the point.

I will do a series of posts this week to show you what I've made in the last few weeks. I made a lot of gifts for people, but mostly for people to give to other people. I myself did not give a whole lot of gifts this year, but the ones I did give actually weren't handmade. Isn't that sad? All this time spent sewing and I don't even give handmade gifts. But I did allow OTHER people to give handmade gifts. I guess it all works out in the end.

I made this "Mommy and Me" apron set for my sister's sister-in-law and niece.

I had to use the adult mannequin for this picture, even though this is the child's apron. Mabel (the mannequin) is a very small lady, but I also made the apron pretty big so it would fit my sister's little niece for a long time.

I've been doing this new thing with the pockets, sewing them on an angle. I think I saw them like that on an old vintage apron pattern. Either that or I totally came up with the idea myself! Haaa, doubt it!
