Aprons made for family

Above is a photograph of my sister and her husband wearing the aprons that I made for them.

I think it can be hard to find a design that men can wear, and when they do barbecues they do need an apron!  Making a football (soccer) themed apron seemed an appropriate choice as most men like the game, especially UK men! I made his personalised to add that personalised touch. The football pocket was made from the spare fabric I had left over when I made my son's football themed room. Here is a link to that project: Football Room

My sisters apron was one that was upcycled from a dress. If you read my blog often you will know that I love making aprons from dresses.  Here is a link for a dress to apron tutorial: apron from dress tutorial

I have been busy lately making some curtains for my sister to put in the nursery room. She wanted them made with a blackout lining so to help her baby sleep. My sister and her family are here in the UK for a short visit so she wanted to take the curtains back home with her. I have a post on my other BLOG where I have some photos of her baby daughter meeting her extended family for the first time! What has everybody been upto lately, please share with me.
