An crafty as our Christmas got

Christmas 2010 was filled with a number of handmade Christmas gifts, but 2011 was a bit different.  I was sewing up until the last moment, but with blessing outfits, bow ties for church, and a little something for myself as well (which I am really excited to share with you).  Handmade Christmas gifts were in short supply.  

 I did manage to pull off a cute little wrap around apron for my Mother in Law.  I really like how the apron turned out, but unfortunately the pictures just don't do it justice. I had a small window of time to take pictures, and unfortunately it was a very dark day.

 The apron features a box pleated skirt, with slightly fitted bodice.  You can tell that I didn't sew darts into the bodice, this because I wanted the bodice to be fitted, but forgiving.  My Mother In Law and I don't have exactly the same proportions, so I wanted it to give if need be.

Do you ever find that you give gifts that you really want, but never take the time to sit down and make. I need a full length apron, but do I ever get around to making one for  Maybe next year.
