I made this as a gift for someone I love. I am posting a photo or 2 because I can't resist, and because she doesn't even know my blog exists, so I should be safe!
I got this pattern from my mom, who got it from her aunt Wilma. I guess Wilma used to make these vintage pillows for the kids for Christmas- so I wanted in on the vintage family action! I used really soft flannel, and it is amazing! (but really hard to embroider- flannel does not like to be marked by anything!) Oh well, it took a little more time than I anticipated but it turned out better! You will definitely see more of these in the future...
So I have been working on these for forever! (it seems like) Pretty much half of November and a few days here and there this month. Of course I thought that if I did a bunch at the same time, that it would save me time, but it didn't. Go figure.
I do have more...but they are not cut out yet and I have to get some more fabric for some of them- so watch for those a little later this month! (yes, I am crazy.)
Ready? Set- Go!

This one is different than the one I did for my mom. I used a different fabric for the ties, ruffle & pocket.

This one is not for sale, sorry! Loo-loo picked out this fabric so I could make her her very own apron. I should have gotten more of it- it's sold out everywhere I look for it!
And I had accidentally gotten too little of the yellow fabric, and when I went to get more, they had a pattern kit for an apron with this same fabric! So when I asked where the yellow was, the lady wouldn't give me any 'cause it was set aside for the class! Kinda rude, I don't care that they did that, I just wished that she would of been nicer about giving me a tiny 1/4 of a yard.
Apparently I am obsessed with Robert Kaufman right now. Kinda funny. (funny-strange not funny-ha-ha.)
I am selling these for $50. Just in time for Christmas! Please contact me by email-
if you would like to purchase one.
I plan on listing them on Etsy, I just don't know when.
