I saved this post for today, so the apron we gave my mom would be a surprise. My sister got a pattern, some fabric, and then left on a study abroad. She hid it under her bed until I could get it.
The one problem was, I didn’t catch that it was for my mom’s birthday (at the end of the month) and not Mother’s Day. I didn’t know that until we were skyping with my sister, and my mom was opening the gift.
Oops! She’ll just get to enjoy it earlier in the month.
Here I am being very domestic. My mom loves the apron. I also made an apron for my mother-in-law last year which has great fabric too.
