Apron 'n Paris!

oh, i know i'm a bit silly
but when i was taking pics of the apron i made yesterday
i was thinking of the movie
'april in paris'
and just had to tweak it a bit for my title...hehe!

i made this for a friends birthday...which is today.

i finished it just as the sun was setting
of course the light was diminishing fast in my dining room.

'friends' tag..came from a packet of scrapbooking tags
that were on special a couple of months ago at big w...
they are printed on canvas but i don't know how washable they are.
nevermind, if they disintegrate, the rest of the stitching can just be pulled out.

i always like to make the ties
just a bit longer than the pattern specifies...
plenty of length to make a lovely big bow at the back
or to bring around the front and tie up.

i've folded the apron up,
gift wrapped it,
tied the package with a bow,
personalised the card...

now i'm off to party!

enjoy your friends today...
