Pretty Pink Apron and a Lovely Little Win

This is the second apron that I've made and I'm very proud of how it turned out. 
A few people have told me that the pocket should've been on the right side, 
but in my defense when I cook I stir with my right hand, therefore my free hand goes into the pocket on the left. Makes sense to me.
The pocket and hem are trimmed with a gorgeous piece of lace and it's even lined.
It looks fabulous on my Niece!
 I didn't have enough fabric to make a tie so used ribbon instead. I think it adds to the prettiness of it.
 I've nearly completed another apron, I just need to add a pocket. And as it's for my little sister I'll put the pocket on the right side or maybe a big one in the middle.

It would be lovely if you could visit and if you like it please 'like' it.

A Little Win!
Last month I entered a competition to win a beautiful copy of Meet Me at Mike's Crafty Journal and I won!!!

There are loads of  lined, dotted and gridded pages for you to doodle down your ideas or create inspiration boards. It also includes a How-to crochet and make granny squares for beginners like me. I love it! 
It is absolutely gorgeous and I just can't bring myself to scribble in it yet, but I will one day, promise!
Thank you Emily for the lovely giveaway! 
Handmade by Emily is a lovely Crafty Lifestyle Blog, so why not pop on over and have a look.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. The apron is gorgeous, I set aside some fabric once to make an apron, but never got round to doing it. This has inspired me to give it another try xxx
