Christmas Challenge

Kia-ora, Today Sunday 22nd Fudge and  I made the apron for our Christmas challenge.The rules were it has to be able to be worn and must use Christmas fabric -- I used the same pattern as the BBQ ones I made the other day but fussy cut and did a little applique on this one-- Just enough to make it pretty--I hope.

Kia-ora, Today I spent time with Fudge--my Janome machine and
with my serger--- and made this BBQ apron --Its a Christmas gift for-----!!
Have enough fabric left to make a second one but wont use the NZ fabric as trim.
Will use something different.

I also have a ladies apron to make for the Christmas challenge at my Quilting club--Pinestream Quilters --we have to make a apron that can be worn and use Christmas fabric. Wont put up a picture of that until after our meeting next week tho.
