First of the Mother's Day gifties

Still in keeping with the Handmade Pledge, I've been busily making Mother's Day gifts for all the various moms and grandmoms out there. This one should get to Baba Lena today or tomorrow, since it's meant to be a combined Mother's Day and Birthday present, so I decided to post it a little early.

Apron with baby clothes patches

An apron featuring applique pieces of Lara's old baby clothes. Made with fabric left over from the quilt, fully lined, and with interfacing between the front and back to give it a little sturdiness. I really like how it came out.

I've been lurking on your blog almost every day for a couple of months now, and just wanted to say how much I love reading about Lara and your lives. I've got three girls of my own, and I'm particularly inspired by your sewing projects. I haven't quite "made the pledge", but I'm almost making all of my gifts now and clothing for myself and kids.

Thanks for the inspiration!
