Cooking Up Some Love

February 14th

napkin aprons for Valentine's day

I whipped up a few cloth napkin aprons this weekend and gave them out today as Valentine’s gifts.

A friend gave me this embroidered heart last week. She made it on some fancy sewing machine and had attached a ribbon so it could be used as a bookmark. I said adios to the ribbon and used it for a bit of embellishment.

My mom included these metal “hand made” tags in my stocking this year. I found them in my sewing tackle box and thought they’d be perfect on the back of the aprons. Voila — a sweetheart apron for cooking up a yummy meal loved ones on Valentine’s Day.

    Those heart tags are super cute. Are those dishtowels you use to make the aprons?

    I love how you just “whip” stuff up. I had to hem a pair of pants this week (ruined them – SO pissed) and just about had a melt-down in the process. I’m so out of sewing practice.

    (For some reason my comments haven’t been posting on your blog so hopefully this will work this time!)
