Shhhh! Don't tell Audrey!

It's a surprise!

Flirty Skirty apron

My little sister Audrey graduated from college in May. I had a hard time deciding what to give her as a gift. Money seemed so impersonal. In some sort of stroke of brilliance (I hope!) I decided to make her a cute apron and some matching cloth napkins, since she likes to cook.

The apron pattern is from The Apron Lady and I decided to make the half-apron pattern. I agonized over the fabric choice (as several people could tell you!) but ultimately decided I had to get my hands on some Alexander Henry apples and pears fabric - I just love it.

The apron is reversible, and this is the other side:

Apron back

I still have to make the cloth napkins - I'm going to use the apple and pear fabric for those - but pretty soon this will be on its merry way to Audrey! (A little late, but I hope it is worth it!)

Congratulations Audrey!!!

I won't tell Audrey, but I know right now she will LOVE the apron and napkins*. The fabric looks fabulous! (*As Audrey's mom, I should know!!!)
