Aprons Galore

I went to my store Christmas party this afternoon with all the fabulous girls from work. Instead of buying/making each other presents, our manager Suzy gave us 1/2 metre of herringbone calico & a name of a recipient. We were to create an apron for our Secret Apron Swap partner. We gave out the aprons today and they all looked fabulous!

They are going to be displayed in-store at Midland Textile Traders till Christmas Eve if you want to take a closer look. Here are a few close ups of some of the aprons.

Kay and I will be at the Inglewood Artisan Markets again this Saturday 12th December from 9am-1pm. If you’re in the area, please drop by and say Hi.

With Love

What a fabulous range of aprons! It is amazing how you all started with the same fabric and have created such fantastic designs. Such a fun idea for a Christmas party. I am sure it will make a great display in store.
