i made a goal this year to make an apron for all of my sisters (born from the same wonderful mommy, and not from the same wonderful mommy...they are all sisters of mine) for their birthday. i did this for two reasons. 1- to practice my sewing skills. 2- because i thought it would be cheaper then purchasing a gift. i quickly learned that the money saving part wasn't going to be the case, but i had fun thinking of a different apron design for each person and testing various techniques. alli and larissa where the last out of the bunch and here are the results!
