Sisters-in-Law on a mission to spread craftiness around the world.

The other day at WalMart (the one in York still sells fabric), my Mom and saw an adorable Christmas apron on display, and we discovered that it was from an easy-to-sew, pre-printed pattern. That means that the pattern was printed directly on the fabric, like this:
It even came with instructions printed on the fabric:
I have been coveting those super cute, frilly aprons that are popular --and expensive -- right now (I love this website), so I decided to take the opportunity to make a second apron at the same time. All in all I think I spent about $10 for both aprons. I picked some cute pink and green fabric, laid the Christmas pattern on top of it, and cut them both out at the same time so I ended up with two of everything:
Then I just followed the instructions on the pattern and got it all sewed together. Now, I do not have much experience with a sewing machine, so my Mom gave me lots of help and instruction! It was a bit of a slow process (everything had to be pressed, hemmed, pinned, etc), but the finished product turned out really cute! I have not finished the pink one yet, but I will post pictures of it as soon as I get it done.
