Polka dot apron

*Warning – lots of photos ahead!*

Becs said to me a few months ago “I want you to make me this for Christmas, but with cupcakes as well”, and showed me this:

And so the challenge was made! After days of sewing and hand-embroidering, here’s the final result:

One red polka dot apron, complete with cupcakes AND red trimmed lace!

The hand embroidery came in with the applique cupcakes on the bib and pockets

Not bad for my first from-scratch apron, and without a pattern!  I just used an existing apron that I liked to get the right length for the bib and skirt and followed my nose from there.

The happy recipient 🙂

Stay tuned for more crafty goodness!
