December Presents Round One
My best friend and I have our birthday's in the same month... December! Oy!
I decided this year to try my hand at making an apron. I really love Anthropologie aprons and thought that I should be able to create a version myself. These are the two aprons that I used as a guide.
And here is what I came up with: I really wanted to try it on and take a pic, but, you know, it didn't quite fit over my belly ;-)
And in that package was her Christmas gift which she has opened and cozied up with. A scarf of many tiny stitches. I love it. It's soft, cuddly, and such a vibrant color. I am sure it looks amazing on her.
I am also not a fan of wrapping paper. This year I bought a few yards of Muslin fabric, added a couple of stamps and designs, and packaged gifts that way. It seemed most fitting for handmade gifts.
Stay Tuned.. there are many more to share. Happy Birthday Jordan!
