Personalized Aprons : :

I have been busy, busy, busy this week! The holiday orders are all getting done and still coming in and I am loving it! So much of it all I can't share here or here (and it's killing me), but many of the items are personalized and well now I don't want to ruin any surprises! I'll be saving those photos for here after the holidays...

What I can share --- are these new little girl aprons! This is my new design, with a fun little patchwork ruffle on the bottom. My new favorites! I've also been meaning to show you all my new wire form here for weeks now, so be sure to notice... It has a very tiny waste, making it the perfect place to display aprons made for little ones. Plus...it spins!!!
This apron, made for a little girl who prefers pinks, has lots of Anna Maria Horner's Good folks prints, a little Alexander Henry, and a few other fun, coordinating prints from my stash.
This apron, made for a little girl who doesn't prefer pink, has some of my very favorite fabrics  -- prints from Anna Maria Horner, as well as a little Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow and Amy Butler's Full Moon Polka Dot.
I added initials to the pockets on both to customize for the little girls who will be receiving them as Christmas gifts. If you haven't checked out the Sukie Iron on's book, you really should! I love it and am using it for so many things...see here, here, and here.
And, lastly, I finally cut into my new Innocent Crush! Definitely my very favorite fabric collection that I have purchased since nine months ago when I started sewing -- LOVE!!!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! ~ Maureen
