More Aprons & Stuff

This was a gift for a baby shower. I made a burp rag and nursing cover from this cute pink & yellow Amy Butler fabric and then tucked them inside the bag I made from Amy Karol's book. We were requested to bring gifts unwrapped--and I think this turned out to be a cute way to package all the goodies.

This apron I made as a gift for a friend. I was supposed to work on it at the apron making party that I hosted--but I just finished it. It is the same pattern as this apron that I made awhile back.

The boys sporting their man-prons that I made them for Christmas. Of course these are only for manly uses like grilling and making pancakes.
