But - back to all the Christmas joy of 2010:
I have a sweet, beautiful friend who lives on an idyllic plot of land in Mississippi with her cute as a button husband and their cuter than a button toddler. For me, she represents the epitome of fashion and style and I just wish I could be so effortlessly gorgeous as she is. Her house is like a spread in Cottage Living and she always looks like she just stepped out of a J. Crew catalog.
In short, I am intimidated by shopping for her.
So I make fun things instead so at least if it is awful, she'll know it's from the heart!
This past year, I gifted her this fun apron!
The apron goes "MOO!"
Ok, so for a girl who is married to a cattleman, I thought an apron with a cow print was appropriate. But not like, a steak marinating, grill-manning cow-print. Something with a girly flair.
Something like this super-scripty, hot pink monogram! What a fun juxtaposition!
And it's reversible! The back has a large pocket.
A large pocket that says "moo" :-D
This was a great pattern to use. I know that this is not the type of apron that is in style right now, but this was just a first attempt, and I wanted to build up to the more Donna Reed type aprons that are all the rage. And maybe if I fool around with them enough, I can end up creating my own patterns and having something fun to sell on the etsy shop!
For her sweet little boy, I decided to use a ready-made hoodie to make his little tractor-loving dreams come true.
Still looking for the perfect green hoodie that's daddy-sized.
