Hooray...a finished apron, let's celebrate

So, I did actually have enough bias tape.  I know you were wondering, weren't you?  You probably wouldn't be able to sleep tonight, so that is why I got back on this thing to tell you....allow you some relief.  I actually finished the entire apron.  I am going to give it to my MIL tomorrow....just because. 

Now I am sure you thought I would model the apron, but let me tell you that I just ate a chocolate covered marshmallow Santa and frankly would rather die than have my hips on my blog.  That is right folks, that is how it is. 


So the scallops here one the bottom...hmm.  Scallops.  I sure think they are cute, but I hate making them.  I clipped these babies to death and they still want to roll.  What is the deal??  I wish I would have had more teal to do the binding.  Oh well.  It is what it is ....it is done, that it is what it is.

PS---I 'heart' fig tree....big shout out to Joanna and her crew.  Keep that beautiful fabric coming.  LOVE it.

Also, if you commented on either of my posts about this apron....you are now officially entered to win these 2 charm packs.  Seems I found I had extra of this line, so my mistake is your lucky day.  Leave a comment to enter....doesn't have to be anything fancy (maybe the best part of your holiday...or a link to a cute project you've seen in blogland...or your own confession to something yummy you've indulged in recently, or just a brief hello).

Your apron turned out so cute! I love Fig Tree fabrics too. Your MIL is going to love it too. Aster Manor is one of my very favorite fabrics, I would so love to win the charm pack, thanks for the chance. Doesn't it feel great to get these projects done? I hear ya on modeling an apron, I'm not about to do that either.

Darling Apron... Santa was good to me -- He brought me your book. The pages are already worn. I carry it with me everywhere for 5 minute quilt breaks. I'll send pictures ...The charm packs have great colors... throw my name in the bucket.

Cute finish! I too have been into the chocolate. My mom brought a pan of brownies and left them for DH and me.

Your MIL is going to love the apron Kris! And I agree Fig Tree is awesome.
So I made a batch of homemade caramels and a batch of spritz cookies on Christmas Eve. And due to my lack of self control, today I dropped off ALL the remaining goodies with my son and DIL!!

I think the apron is beautiful! Your MIL will be very happy :-) I admit in the last post I thought it looked pretty without the scallops, too. ;) Great Job!

Brenda said...

I like the scallops. Very pretty, flirty and fun.

Allie said...

That turned out darling! I think the contrast in the binding is a lovely touch. It really makes the scallops shine. I had to laugh at your comment about your hips - hubby got me a new camera for Christmas, [yay] and had to play with it - he took a picture of my BEHIND! I had to delete it immediately, didn't want it to fall into the wrong hands, you know. Oh my gosh it was awful - my MOM said it looked like an old lady behind, lol!!!!!

Well, Kris...Your apron is great. I'm a huge apron fan and yours is beautiful. I'm looking forward to making a few new ones this year, too.
I'm also a big fan of Fig Tree fabrics. I made a quilt this year from the Dandelion Girl line. Wish I had LOTS more! ;-)
Holiday Blessings,
Donna

The best part of the holiday is spending time with family.

Wonky Girl said...

Pretty apron! Scallops- I starch the heck outta them. Oh, and the hips thingy, I know what you mean. I have two boxes of Godiva Chocolates calling to me constantly.

Maria said...

Pleased you had enough bias to finish the beautiful apron.
Love your giveaway fabrics Kris.

SoozeM said...

Love the apron, the scallops really set it off nicely!! I have a bit of a liking for figtree too :)

Carol said...

It sure is cute! Your MIL is going to flip!

such a cute apron it turned out so well.

Very cute apron Kris. I'm sure your MIL will love it and use it!

Kelly said...

What a cute apron. I don't think I would have the patience to tackle those scalloped edges at Christmas time - just too much to do to fuss with them!

Needled Mom said...

Oh yes....scallops are a challenge, but it looks fabulous.

Peggy said...

I like scallops but don't like making them. Your apron turned out really nice. I'd love to win.

FML Crochet said...

Your apron came out great. I'm intimidated by scallops. Maybe I'll just have to try them.

Kelly@ Charming Chatter said...

You're too funny - I'm so with you on the hips thing LOL! Love your apron Kris - scared of scallops and haven't tried them yet - but yours look great!

Jen W said...

The apron is beautiful! I have a collection of over 100 - and I would
gladly add it to my collection!
And I've had too many Christmas cookies to count - luckily my boys haven't caught on yet to how many come out of the oven and how many they actually get. Shameful - I know.

I don't know if you have already given away your fabric or not. You are a dear to give away some fabric at any time. I just happened across your blog today. I love the apron. I've been looking for a pattern for an apron for my daughter. I thought I'd make a table runner for her birthday back in August, but she said she'd much rather have an apron. Now she's pregnant with her second son. It'll be a nice surprise to get an apron in with a baby package from mom and have a nice new apron or two or three when she has the new baby. It's always nice to get something new for mommy when the new baby comes. She knows that the older son certainly will not be left out. As a matter of fact, since he doesn't know his alphabet yet, I'm planning look alike aphabet blankets for the boys with their names on the back (as soon as they decide on a name for the new son). Again, I'm sure the right person won (wins) the fabric and most of all thanks for the idea.

The apron is beautiful! I've never tried anything with a scalloped binding. An apron might be a good item for me to start with.
