It's a Birthday!

Last weekend I made a whirlwind trip to see my Sister. It was a quick one. I flew in Friday afternoon and left Sunday evening. But it was perfect! It was short enough that I could keep her to myself, mostly, and not make her family feel left out. Altho we did go out to dinner with them once because it was her birthday! I even made her a present.


It's this cute Hedgehog apron. I spent a lot of time making the bias tape. And afterwards I found out about this nifty little contraption that speeds up the process tremendously! Lesson learned, I now own the aforementioned contraption in several sizes. It was fun to make this apron and now I'm going to make my own. But the best thing? Spending a whole weekend with my Sister! Happy Birthday Sis!

It sounds like it was a great trip. I think the apron turned out really cute, can't wait to see yours.

What a fun weekend. Yea!! The cute apron looks like it has a scalloped, bottom edge with the bias tape. Does it?? That is such a cute pic of the two of you.

What a perfect comment from your dad...their picture behind you is one of the first things I noticed as well when I saw this!
Gorgeous apron, I am going to buy a sewing machine this summer. There are just too many cute little girl bloomers and vintage jumpers I want to make and refuse to spend $60 on....
I might be calling you in tears (of frustration) once that happens!
