WIP #5

Wednesday sort of snuck up on me this week...
Completed!  Logan's apron.  I lined the back in some skull Halloween print I had purchased on clearance at my local quilt shop. It had been sitting in my fabric basket waiting for a good little project to be used on.



It's hard to tell in the picture, but I kept toying with how to make the neck strap adjustable.  I finally settled on snaps placed at different intervals on the strap.



When I asked Logan if he liked his apron, "I do!  I do!  I do Mama!"  Then a jump into my arms where I received a big hug and - mwah!  a kiss on my cheek.  Ahh (sniff).

Projects currently working on: Lydia's Mom's apron - I spent little bits of free time yesterday on cutting out the pieces for this.  Lydia had a specific apron pattern (Kitchen Kouture - vintage tablecloth apron)  Obviously I am not using a tablecloth.



Other projects being worked on: I am so behind on my quilt alongs. They will receive more of the love and attention they deserve next!

That apron is awesome! Snaps seem like a great idea, especially since sometimes kids (my kid, heh) gets fussy about putting things over his head.
