I made these two apple themed projects to go with my overwhelmingly apple-y kitchen.  I made a plastic grocery bag holder that I embroidered my name on and three little apples:

(Pardon the massive amount of Pop-Tarts)
and a dish soap apron:

This always makes me giggle!

Here is how you make the apron.  I probably made the drawing WAY more complicated than it needs to be! 
materials needed:
scrap of fabric (leftover kitchen curtains work great needs to be about 10 inches square)
scrap of lace (approx. 1/2 yard) (optional)
1 yard double fold bias binding

Cut pattern as directed.  Attach lace to long curved side of fabric or just hem.  Sew bias to neckand trim.  Start sewing bias binding for 10 inches then attach to one arm hole and sew around to the neck, leaving 5 inches of bias to slip over the bottle.  Continue sewing the bias across the other arm hole and finish with 10 inches of bias hanging off the other end.  Slip over neck of bottle and tie apron in the back.  Voila! Now giggle away!
Print this out on 8 1/2" X 11" paper

wow someone that has as many poptarts as me... I have them almost every morning. Cheesy I like the reduced brownsugar and s'mores the best. Have you ever made a pop tart sandwich? two warm poptarts with honey in the middle mmmm. I also eat them out of the fridge.   The apron is sooo cute. hehe!  Grin Grin

You came in from the darkness and held the door open wide
You stood there like a vision before my unbelieving eyes
I believe in what I see and also what I hear
But did the night play tricks on me or were you really there.

OOOOH that sounds heavenly!  I like freezing pop tarts, they taste like ice cream.  The sandwich sounds wonderful might have to try that tomorrow morning!  Thanks for the compliments on the apron, I laugh every time I go in the kitchen!

What a brilliant idea RamenQueen!! I love the idea of dressing a bottle - actually my mum bought these bizarre teeshirt things for wine bottles the other christmas which totally cracked me up!

The apron is so cute! I don't have a kitchen so I don't really clean dishes that often, but I want one Smiley I think I might try to make an artsy canvas apron to go on one of my glue bottles that I keep in studio at school. It would be so goofy  Grin

Cute apron and bag holder. I had to ban Pop tarts in my house ( and I adore the cherry ones ) my Son at 6 would have one and then drive his teacher insane fidgeting and sometimes running around in circles, now hes 16 and snooty about refined sugars hehe.

Oh my gosh I totally forgot to post how to make the plastic bag holder.  Here goes:
1- 24 inch by 9 inch piece of fabric (for the main bag)
2- 1 inch by 6 inch pieces of fabric (for the ties)
2- 5 inch pieces of 1/4 inch elastic

Fold short edge of main bag fabic down two inches on each side, wrong sides facing and press.  Sew close to raw edge and again about 1/2 in towards outer edge to make casing for elastic.  Thread elastic through the casing and secure down at each edge (it will make the fabric pucker, that's okay)  Then put the fabric right sides together and sew along long edge catching elastic in stitching.  This is your main bag. 
To make the ties to hang it from, fold the 1X6 inch pieces of fabric in half then again to center fold and top stitch along long edge on each piece.  These are your ties.  Hand stitch them to the inside of the main bag behind where the elastic is in the casing so the stitches aren't visible from the outside and VOILA!  One plastic bag holder.  I have one in my pantry, one in my garage and one in my sewing room.  I made on for my friend and she puts her hair scrunchies in it and hung it in her bathroom.  They are so easy to make you can coordinate your kitchen with the soap apron and plastic baggie holder.
Happy sewing!
