Dish Towel Apron

I participated in the Craftaholics Anonymous Handmade Gift Exchange this year again.  It's so much fun to make someone a surprise gift and receive one in return!  I had emailed my partner a few times back and forth before deciding what to make her.

My partner was Tracy from Tennessee and she is super nice!  We became friends on Facebook and Pinterest.  So I decided to browse her Pinterest boards to get an idea of something to make her.  I figured if she had pinned it, she'd for sure like it.  Brilliant, no?  She had pinned a couple dish towel aprons.  I loved the idea of it and figured that was something I could do.

Here are my results.
 This was the tutorial I used.  I had to improvise at the end because I didn't understand the tutorial.  But I think it turned out well!

 And then I decided to model it for you all, lucky you!

 Pretty cute huh?

Made me want one for myself.  It's a pretty handy thing to have a dish towel as an apron if you ask me.

In fact, I may or may not have already started one for myself...

And this is what Tracy made me!

A darling memo board.  I just love the fabric she chose, it's perfect.

And I've already put it to good use. :)

Hanging right by my calendar- the perfect spot.

Thanks Tracy!

I'm linking this up to the Gift Exchange Linky Party and a few others too. :)
