|The apron was made using a Martha Stewart template I found online here and then added my own twist. I made a few changes to the original. I made the apron skinnier, shorter and added the ruffles and a lining on the back. I also changed the way the top ties were attached and made the pocket smaller. Overall, I love the way the apron turned out.|
I used some basic plain white tea towels and backstitched a tulip design on them.
Here is a closer look at the detail on the towels. I did them both the same so that she would have a matching set.
The recipe book was actually one of my favorite projects. I used CTMH Life's Delight paper packet to make the cover and the divider pages. The actual recipes are actually just written on 4x6 index cards. After all the pages were finished I bound it using my YourStory binding machine.
