Sister in law's gift

I was trying to figure out what else to do for my sister in law for Christmas. She's pretty crafty and likes cooking, making cakes, etc. I have in the past given her icing recipes, measuring cups and a container of powdered sugar, etc. What I hadn't given her was an apron. Now I can sew pretty well by hand but I'm scared of sewing my fingers together on a machine. Yes, really. Same with glue, I can't hardly use superglue, let alone a hot glue gun. Not without supervision. Forget it. Or an iron either. I'm just too accident prone. Back to the apron. I didn't set out to make her one, I just looked down and saw them in Wal-Mart. About $5 for a plain white apron and I thought to myself, self, you can embroider something on that. And so I did. I looked everywhere for the patterns and finally realized that I must order them, and they finally arrived yesterday afternoon. I started working on it around 4pm and got done around 2 this afternoon. Not really too long all put together. Most of my issues were with figuring out how to get started again. Once I did some research I was all set, sat down and worked until midnight last night and then worked on it all day today. Now it's all in the washer getting the extra markings from the iron-on pattern off and it'll be ready to wrap up for her. Just in time...


Here's the patterns...

Here's the one I picked to use...




and here's the finished product!
