Happy Holidays!

I wasn't planning on making anything Christmasy for the home this year, but then I found this beautiful sparkly poinsettia fabric and Joanne's and changed my mind.  I decided to make placemats and matching napkins.  I used McCall's 5439 for the placemats (which is really just a circle) and followed these instructions for the napkins.

With the leftover fabric, I decided to make an apron for a coworker's mom...she bakes something delicious for us almost weekly so I figured she'd appreciate an apron.  (My mom is modeling it below.)


I used Butterick 5747 view C again.  I've made many aprons now using diff patterns, and this one is my favorite.

Merry Christmas!!
