I am happy to report there are a few new aprons around the Cupcake household!
I was recently pleasantly surprised to be asked to test the new Lola/Lolita pattern from Sew Liberated (formerly Montessori by Hand), the designer of the now-famous Emmeline Apron pattern. It is such a sweet pattern and has mother/daughter sizes, so there's now one for me and one for littlest T. Check it out:
Then, I received my swap from the Apronista Summer Swap -- ric-rac (or is it rick-rack) was the only required element. Look at what wonderful gift I've received! Don't you think Lorrie hit a home run? It's a ruffled and flirty half-apron made in gorgeously whimsical fabrics with loads of rick-rack, a tapered waistband and she tucked little goodies into the pocket. Aren't I spoiled? Thank you so much, Lorrie!! Even with all my aprons, I have nothing like it! I'm really going to enjoy this apron.
