My "reveal"

I was supposed to reveal all of the Christmas gifts I made this year for my sister-in-law's Sew and Tell celebration last week, but, shocker, I didn't get around to it in time.  Better one week late than never, right?

My brother-in-law, Logan, is an AMAZING chef (more on that to come . . . ) and a med student, so he always cooks in a shirt and tie.  I decided he needed an apron for Christmas.  So I hatched a plan to make him a "manly" apron (as manly as they come at least, which is not very), a "sassy" apron for Sarah, and a matching bib for Cal.  But when I couldn't find any patterns girly enough for Sarah, I decided to create my own.

What do you think?


 

I think she likes it!

I also made this for myself, but it isn't nearly as exciting. :) 

But it IS reversible.  So fun!

Your apron rocks! And your ability to create your own pattern on your 4th project is insane! You are awesome, bordering on the sickening. :)

You could just post a couple of cute pics of you and Cal and a couple of G and G or something (like Gran in your clothes with Sam saluting and modeling your sneakers). Your xmas stuff wouldn't have to be long like mine. I need to send you a pic CD, b/c there are some cuties from the beach of you and Cal! If you want to blog about our trip I can email you the best two or three. xo
