Handmade Apron - Handmade Thursday

The gorgeous Tracy who blogs over at White Lily Green has a fabulous Handmade Thursday linky and I thought it was about time I joined in again.  I recently purchased some fairly decent quality sheets from a local charity shop and made plain white tote bags for my daughters to decorate.  I also made an apron as my daughters had been nagging me for a while to make them one each.  I will be making the other two over the coming weeks but thought I would show off the first of the three.

I used bias binding that I had in my sewing box and some fabric scraps to make the strawberries.  I enjoyed sewing the embroidery watching telly in the evenings.  My daughers friends all want one now so I may be making loads more.

Assisted by my 8yo daughter, here are the photos of the finished apron:






What have you made? Join the linky and show it off!
