Cupcakes for twins!

I just finished these two adorable glittery cupcake aprons for two little twin girls. You can't really see the glitter that well, but it has silver glitter to the fabric. :)

Cupcakes, Kids, and Shopping!

One of the local JoAnn's fabric stores is closing (Publix bought the whole shopping center and is evicting them so that they can expand) and I got 10 patterns for various things including aprons. All of their patterns (except Vogue) were $1.99!! I don't usually use patterns...I tend to buy them and then just make it my own anyhow. They are never just right for me. :) I got some books on knitting and crocheting too. I am attempting to learn how to knit and crochet. I really want to learn how to knit because there are so many cute things that you can make. I don't have children and probably don't want any, but I just love all the cute little hats and blankets you can make them so I can make them for all of my friend's kids. :)

I am also in the process of finishing two adorable glittery cupcake aprons for two adorable little twin girls who are in kindergarten and love to bake! I made their mommy an apron for her birthday and they love it and always make sure she remembers to wear it when cooking and baking. Now they will each have their own yummy little cupcake apron!! I will post pictures when I finish them. I just have to attach the straps. I am using grosgrain ribbon for the straps because it is so hard to make little fabric straps on these tiny little aprons. I bet little half aprons for little girls would be absolutely adorable!! I'll have to try one soon!!

Christmas is just around the corner...

Christmas is just around the corner and the Christmas Festival is this coming Saturday. I have quite a few aprons made for Saturday. I have a handful of Christmas aprons, as well as these news ones that are pictured below. I was so happy to finally find some black and white damask fabric!! I love this pattern and even wanted to wallpaper my room with it!! I love the green apron towards the bottom!! It didn't really photograph well, but I absolutely LOVE it!! It's one of those that I kind of hope doesn't sell so that I can keep it, but I can't keep them all...there is only so many aprons a person needs...or is there...

Chiefland Christmas Festival

It's been awhile since I update the blog, but there should be new stuff coming soon! The Apron Diva will be at the Chiefland Christmas Festival on Saturday, December 5th. I am hoping to have lots of new aprons available in different styles. I'm working on getting orders filled and out so that I can create new ones for the upcoming Christmas season.

Girls Just Wanna Have Rum Apron

I found this dish towel yesterday and just knew it had to be made into an apron for a friend! I think it turned out pretty cute and I hope she likes it. It's pretty handy having a built in dish towel too! (and yes...I'm still working on everyone else's too!) :) You can't really see the detail of the green fabric though.

New Groovy Retro Print Apron

I have a few different new styles of aprons that I want to try. I really like the retro feel of this one.

More aprons

Here are a few aprons that I made and gave as Christmas gifts. Mark has a huge collection of pigs, so he got a pig apron. Lori Beth had her little girl's nursery done in pink camo and after I had already bought the fabric to make her a pink camo apron...she said, "you know, it would be really awesom if you made a pink camo apron" and I just gave her a dirty look and she said, "What? Did I ruin something?" all innocently. The other unique one I made was a pink Westie/Scottie Argyle pattern for my West Higland Terrier loving friend.
