Pink Lemonade Ladies Apron

This one was requested to be "pink and funky" ~ this is what I came up with.
 I actually bought a sundress, then upcycled it into this apron, that's why it looks a little more dressy.
 Wrap around yellow ties

 Little bow on the waistline

Cookies 'n' Creme Mother Daughter Aprons

A friend had given me some material to use for an apron for her daughter in law.  It was in black/cream tones and the sizes dictated the look of the apron.  I was very pleased with it and oh my, there was enough to make a little girls apron as well!

Mother Daughter Aprons like Cookies'n'Creme

Mom's apron with 2 pockets and wrap around waist
 I had just just enough eyelet to make a hem, it was fun to use up some of my sewing bits and pieces
Daughter's apron
 Daughter's apron has 2 little tucks/pleats in the bib and adjustable neck strap as well.  Hopefully she will grow into it and get a little use out of it.
 Mom's pocket has a lace trim
 Girls apron with a little bow, this could be taken apart to lengthen the strap if need be.
Silly me modelling the Mom's apron

The "pillow" Tote Bag

This tote bag was made from material that a cousin sent over to me.  She had bought it for something else that never materialized, so she thought it would go nicely as a tote. I added the contrast brown lining and I think she could even make it reversible if she wants.

Fulled lined/reversible sling tote with 4 pockets

 I've been taking a break from my sewing in order to enjoy a family vacation (the girls first time to the ocean!) and also now to pack up to move three provinces.

Sure felt good to sew again!  Now I'm onto my next apron order and trying to get the last 6 done quickly before we move!
