So here is my first apron and at that pattern on my own, attempt at applique, and embroidery on fabric. I was able to get some wonderful ideas from Jofulabode and the tutorial she had on her web site. Thank you much! i do have to give credit to my bro for thinking of the fish as the "o" in mom. My mom was so stoked to get it.
