What a fun hop with such talent and goodies! Laura Kelly's new fabric line available at Joann's!

Since I also run a B&B I am wearing aprons everyday. I have been making them for all occasions and have been upcycling men's shirts into full length aprons called "Shirt Tails!" I had the perfect blue shirt for this hop and will now have a wonderful apron to wear for my USA visiting guests! I decided to try and use all of the fabric and extra shirt pieces to create a collection for the B&B to entertain with a USA theme!

                                    

 

 

 


(oops, looks like I used the Italian spelling of my name! Mama Mia!)

 

Now for the fun part finishing the apron! I added some buttons, a ruffled flower to the collar! Check out all the wonderful designs below! Laura Kelly and Jen Goode hosted a fun energetic hop, loved the goodies, so sweet (candy was too!)

I LOVE this apron! I am not an apron kind of girl but this apron has changed that! I am thinking of which shirt I am going to use to make this! I can see a Salvation Army trip in my very near future so I can buy some shirts and try this out! What a great gift idea! Must make some to keep on hand for last minute gift giving!!! TFS!
