A Gift for a Friend

Once upon a time, a long time ago, the Lord allowed me the privilege of meeting a sweetheart of a girl, a beauty who I immediately called friend! Her smile is wide, her heart so big and her hugs tell you she cares about you. Lately, she has been going through a tough time and it makes me sad. I really wanted to let her know in a tangible way that she is loved and cared for in the midst of trying times. I wish I could just pop over for a hot cup of tea and show her I care in person but the distance prevents that. So, I made her a little gift. Something to brighten her day. Something pretty that she can wear and remember that, no matter what, there are those in the world that love her and think she is amazing.

I bought myself a hostess apron of this style (black and white in color) a few years ago at a Hobby Lobby. Ever since, I told myself I wanted to make a pattern from it and make some more aprons. This seemed like the perfect time. Then, when we went to Fargo a couple of weeks ago, the Hobby Lobby is where I turned for fabric! The choices they had were amazing and I am kicking myself for not buying more, seeing how wonderfully this apron turned out. It is SUPER easy to make and requires only 2 pattern pieces. Next time I have some more fabric picked out for this project, I will be sure to tell you how to make your own, with pictures as a guide. For now, you will just have to look at the outcome!
