Apron № 100: Honey Bees Giveaway Finish

You can never have too many aprons or too many memories.
-EllynAnne Geisel

Apron № 100 is finished {and it should be half-way to Pago Pago by now}.
I've spent a lot of time blogging about it -– almost more than I spent making it :lol:. First I posted about giving it away and then I posted about who I gave it to. I hope you don't mind hearing about it so much because it was really fun for me to do a giveaway with it.

I did the pocket a little bit different on this one than I have been doing. The adult pattern calls for a flat pocket with rick-rack all the way around it. I did about 17 or 18 aprons that way. When I got the children's pattern, the pocket was a little different, with a cuff across the top and a contrasting gathered pocket bottom, with rick-rack across the bottom of the cuff/top of the gathers. It was totally adorable, so I enlarged it to fit the adult patterns as well. But I saw somewhere in my blog travels {sorry I can't remember where -- I need to start bookmarking these things so I can give credit} that someone had done the pocket in all contrasting fabric, which made sense, because then pocket top didn't disappear into the apron. I thought I'd give it a try. I'm not sure what I think -- I could go either way. What is your opinion.

Barb, you know the rules :wink:. I want a picture of you in your apron when you get it. Hopefully, the issues you've been having with your mail lately have been resolved.

I think I just adore this fabric so much you could hack it up with a knife and superglue it together and I'd still tell you thats one of the prettiest aprons I've ever seen.

I love the bee fabric! I can't wait to see Barb either. Did you make the pattern up or did you buy a pattern? Love it, love it.
