Custom Kitty-Kitty

I'm making a custom apron for the sister in-law of a woman I work with named Tracey. Tracey liked my Kitty-Kitty apron but she wondered if I could customize the pockets to look like her sister in-law's cats. I made simple appliques of the cats orange splotches and then embroidered the faces. Next I lined the pockets with an extra piece of creamed colored fabric because I wanted to face them with black and white gingham. I'm pretty pleased with my progress so far. The red fabric will be the body of the apron, and it will have a black waistband with red topstitching. Tracey and I will collaborate on the name and the story of the apron - that's always part of the fun, and a big part of what makes a custom apron special.

What a wonderful gift, and you're doing a beautiful job! I stopped by to tell you how often I use your change purse tutorial -- I made many little bags as Christmas gifts and am working on one last one today as a gift for my son's teacher. Your method is terrific and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for going to the trouble of posting it!

Merry merry!

Thanks so much! I am really having fun with this one.

Jennifer I have gotten such nice feedback on that tutorial - I'm always so happy to hear that someone has made use of it!
