Christmas Sassy Apron swap

This is the apron I made for the winter Sassy Apron Swap.
I wanted to make sure my swap partner, Christy, received the apron before I posted about it, and I got a very sweet thank you from her yesterday.

The theme was "cookies," so I went with gingerbread, y'all know how I am about gingerbread! The pattern is the Emmeline apron from Sew Liberated. It's my new favorite apron pattern.

The fabric on the front of the apron is a really cute Christmas cookie print.

And the back is that cute gingham check that I just love. I figured that she could wear it with this side showing after Christmas, and be able to use it a little longer.

This is the gingerbread man card I made to go with the apron.

I also included some gingerbread man cookies, the recipe for them, and a gingerbread man cookie cutter, as well as a little snow globe and a gingerbread scented candle (that I of course forgot to take pictures of).

My next several posts will be of the Christmas gifts I made for my family. I've really enjoyed making all of the gifts this year, even though it was stressful at times. I'm going to start working on next year's gifts around June!

I hope you all have a fun New Year's Eve!
