A couple weeks ago, I ordered the book In Stitches by Amy Butler. I love, love, love it! Since we were traveling to Georgia the weekend of Billy’s birthday, I decided it was perfect timing to try out one of the patterns in my new book. So, off to the fabric store I went. I got these great fabrics in Georgia Bulldog colors (Jeremy is a huge fan) and made this apron. I must admit, I was a little jealous. I really wanted to keep it. But I had made it for Billy, so I reluctantly let it go.
I know it is camouflaged in the pretty well, but this apron features a towel hook. (It is like an Eye Spy book trying to find it. I’ll give you a hint. It is in the top left of the photo.) It also has a nice sized pocket. (I know you can at least see the top of the pocket.) Next time I might try to do the entire pocket and towel loop in the contrast color. Although, I do quite like the camo thing going on with this one.
Then, I quickly whipped up this little gift bag with my fabric scraps from the apron project. It was super easy. It has one longer strap on the back and a shorter loop on the front. So, you pull the long strap through the short loop and your bag is closed! I stuck a little “Happy Birthday!” note in the front pocket before giving it to her.
