So, I recently made this adorable little set for the kitchen.. a cute little apron with an embroidered patch and an embroidered tea towel.  The apron's patch is actually embroidered with the sugar and creamer set.. so more sweet than hot.. but the tea towel is sprinkled with steaming pots and pans and their cute little expressions.  Don't you just love the retro images of inanimate objects suddenly being animated with cute little faces and arms and legs?  They're definetly a vice of mine.  Anywhow.. I didn't use a pattern for the apron.. I just sort of winged it.  So, I hope ya'll like this little set.  I really am proud of how it turned out.




















That's about it.  Sorry for the immense amount of pictures.  As you can see I got a little camera happy lol.

Thanks guys!  I really appreciate all the comments!  I was actually feeling doubts about the quality of my stitches on this set.  So, it's nice to get positive feedback lol.  And Sewsew, it is a deal.  I'm claiming you, too.  You always make the most awesome things!  And Rickrack and gingham are definetly two of my favorite things, too!  They always make everything cute lol

Thanks guys for even more sweet comments!  I actually got the pattern from Hobby Lobby believe it or not.  It was a good year ago when I found them.  I didn't even know how to embroider at the time!  I just thought they were so cute I had to get them. lol
