Halloween in July...

I was in Booming Aprons 'Halloween in July' apron swap. I couldn't post what I sent until I knew Jill had received it. Well, she did so here we go! It was the first full sized apron I've ever made and I used Lucy's Sassy Apron pattern. I was pleased with how it turned out.
Jill had asked for an apron she could wear for Halloween and Thanksgiving. I found this really cute Debbie Mum fabric on eBay and couldn't pass it up. It has everything she had listed as liking...scarecrows, pumpkins, crows....the works.

I made her daughter, Nature Girl, this little one with cute spooky faces on it! I appliqued the pocket on the INSIDE too for fun.

I included several other things..recipes, some table decor, place cards for a fun spooky dinner.
But I was most excited about the cupcake toppers I made for her to use. I have just started making them and was pleased with how well they turned out!
No more store bought toppers for me!
