I'll just start this off by saying I very rarely cook, but that doesn't mean I can't look cute trying.  I made this apron to rock the retro domestic goddess style, and classed it up for Christmas.



I added a cute little pocket, all though I don't know what I'd use it for. I just liked the little birdie I embroidered on it.  I also applique'd a littl retro reindeer on the top, along with some hand made applique holly.



Now I can try making christmas cookies, and at least I'll look cute.

I ADORE it Smiley  I always swear I'm going to make stuff like this but never get around to it. 

Do you have something that pushes you to or am I just lazy?

Although you may think pockets are unnecessary on aprons or a useless fribble, they are particularly handy for keeping up with timers, writing utensils, all the odds and ends that need "a place" while you're up to your elbows in food prep. Even if it's just for the paper towel that I don't want to throw away because it's still clean, pockets are a "Must Have" on my aprons (and I cook  a lot!)
