Here is the apron Katherine sent me:
It is perfect for me with all of the cupcakes! And I love the pink bows!
Here is the apron I sent to Marie, my swap partner. It is one of my favorites I have made with the gingham ruffles! (I had to put a t-shirt on the mannequin! LOL)
I thought I would share some aprons I made for Christmas presents also. My sister said she wanted a ladybug apron for Christmas. Wow, that's easy for me to do! I was going to make my niece a matching apron, but when I was digging through my fabric I found this one that was pre-printed on the fabric and I had already cut it out. I had the polka dots already out for my sister's apron and thought it would make a perfect ruffle on Johnna's apron, so I added it, and am very glad I did!
I wanted to make her some Barbie Doll clothes, but did not have time, my friend Chrystal had some she had made, so I bought them from her.
I made the top and the pocket the same way. The top is a ten inch square, I didn't measure the pocket. I cut two pieces of each and sewed them right sides together, and then turned them right side out.
I then lined the tops with the black polka dots.
I gathered all three layers of the bottom at the same time, that was not easy! I then made a waistband and sewed the "skirt" in between the folded layers.
Here is how I made my ties.

If you have any questions, just ask, I know this was not a very detailed tutorial. Be sure to check out my apron pin board!
What homemade gifts are you making this year?
Have a merry Christmas!
