Wedding Gift Apron

One of the girls at work is getting married next month and because I'm insanely cheap I wanted to give her something really special, I made an apron just for her.
She's far too young to be getting married, but as it happens, she hasn't even asked my opinion. Now that I think about it, she actually is young enough to be my daughter. You know, if I had started having kids when I was 13. *cough*

She's a tiny little thing (but packs quite a punch and seems to enjoy hitting me for some reason) so I tried to make this a little smaller than the pattern.

It's got 3 nice big pockets so after she pops out that third kid she'll have a pocket for pacifers, one for hot wheels, and one for Jonas Brothers tickets. (yeah, I know, they'll be old by then)

That's adorable! She'll love it. And how dare she not ask your opinion about whether or not she's too young to marry? :)

Oh wow! I love it! I have totally been looking for a cute apron for myself! of course....I don't need the pattern scaled down...heheh!
Oh...and as for not asking advice...I married when I was 20..didn't listen to anyone around me...5 years later I divorced because he was cheating on me...I'm now 27 and know I won't just settle! I hope it works out for her!

What a pretty apron - you are very talented, I don't do so well when it comes to sewing!

Julie said...

Thanks, I'm really quite the novice...can only do simple things. But I enjoy it, in small doses. I've got one cute out for me too but I think it will be a while before I finish it.

Very cute apron.

And...I think not taking vacations is an excellent way to save a buck.

Have a good day.
