Hop aboard the Christmas train

 I love sales and I especially love 75% off sales! I found the panels for these aprons after Christmas a few years ago.
and I put them away.
and I forgot I had them.


*then* I came across them the other day whilst "bolting" my fabric. I, of course, decided *not* to follow the directions - I don't like hemming raw edges, so I made it reversible. I put a bigger pocket on the plaid side and played around with the topstitching. I think it's much more fun to have two aprons in one! For the next one, I plan on using AbbyDoo's machine- she has all sorts of fancy schmancy stitches to use. :0) I *can't* teach her to use them if I don't play with them first, right?
I'm linking up to Christmas Through the year!
Today I am celebrating my birthday (still) by taking mySweetMommie out for lunch! and of course stopping at all the quilt shops on the route. The route had a few detours to get to the quilt shoppes- i got a new pen to mark my quilt top and some fat quarters!

Love the apron, and making it reversible is such a smart idea! Sounds like you have the perfect day planned with you mom. Happy belated birthday.

Cute aprons! I also think it was a great idea for you to make them reversible.

How fun to find the panels again. The apron/s look great, I hate fiddling with raw edges too, such an excellent solution!

Cute apron, all ready for Christmas. Your lined apron would have so much more body to it, good idea. Thank you for sharing.
