"Show and Tell Friday"



Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!" Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!


My show and tell is an apron that I made this week, for my sister, Amy. She asked for something fun, so I found this polka dot and cherry fabric.


I added red rickrack to the top and bottom of the apron and also on the pocket.


My sister has a 14 month old little girl so I made her a matching apron from the leftover fabric. Grace's doll, Molly was nice enough to model it for us. :0) See how tiny it is?! You are never too young or old to learn how to cook!


Thank you for looking at my show and tell!

How sweet, this is just adorable!! I love the apron and the fabric you picked out is so festive. I really need to invest in a sewing machine, so many fun things to make.
