Yarni Gras Fiesta Apron Swap

I started a babysitting job on Monday with a 3 year old little girl. What a difference one more child can make! My whole schedule has been rearranged and I need to find time to blog now.

I received the cutest apron from CathyJean when we entered Val from Yarni Gras Fiesta Apron Swap. I love the fabric and the pattern CathyJean used. She made the cutest little yo-yo's and added them to the top straps and then added some super big purple ric rac across the front of the apron. CathyJean also sent me a cute jalapeno salt and pepper shaker set and a yummy recipe for a layered Mexican dip.

Here is my Mallory modeling the apron that CathyJean sent.

Here is the apron that I made for Jeanie. I noticed that Jeanie lines most of her aprons so I made this apron reversible. I also added a strap to the waistband so Jeanie could stick a towel in it. I hope it works out! I also made her a hot pad and crocheted her a couple of dishcloths.

This was a fun swap Val! Thanks for asking me to join!!

Now I need to get the apron made that I promised my sister way back in the fall.
Sorry Cathy! I haven't forgot!!

Is this a full time babysitting job?

Oh! And don't worry about the apron Sherry.....I will just wipe my hands on my poor clothes. :(

Really, don't worry. When you have time, fine.

Thanks, Sherry! I'm glad to see everything made it to you. I LOVE your sweet little "model", so cute!! :)

The apron you made for Jeanie is beautiful - really like your crocheted dishclothes.
