Yay kids back to school today which means as a childminder my10 hour shifts of last week are long gone.Today I had before school and after school sessions only.So the question was.........What should I do? Paperwork?...............................................................

No way!!! I decided to look for another project to complete, so into my stash I went and came across this
I am a very reluctant sewer.My lovely friend Lindsay encourages me frequently to try new things.This kit was brought home from a trip to America.It would be a shame for it to sit in my basket any longer.So I unwrapped it,cut out the printed pieces and got to work.First came the pockets.

Then I had to sew them into place, one on the front and the other on the back.

I sewed the 2 bits of apron together.I was seriously impressed at how good it was looking.

Then came the ric rac.I've never done ric rac before so pinned it onto the front of the apron and just went for it!

and the finished item.This is the front.

and this is the back.

What do you think.I love it and I'm so proud that I actually finished it.I think my sister would love it as a christmas present don't you?
