Christmas Apron

I had a friend contact me about making a Christmas Apron for her Mother-in-law. I had a lot of fun with this one!

She wanted it really elegant and classy! When I saw these fabrics, I knew they were perfect! I love the Damask with the Stripes! It also has some gold accents in there! I love it!

I added a little ribbon up top, just to give it a little Sass! My friend had an apron that she wanted it patterned after and it had ric rac, but I thought the velvety ribbon made a better statement!

Every apron needs a little pocket!
What a fun project...once I got started last night I couldn't stop, it didn't take too long though! ;)

Simplistic Nativity Set

I just recently finished this nativity set. My friends and I decided it was time to start our Christmas craft projects and this was our first one! I still didn't have a nativity and saw this post and decided I needed to make a set!

After we finished this set of Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus....I wanted an entire set! We decided to make 3 WiseMen,

One Angel,

and 2 Shepherds with a Sheep,

We decided to incorporate twine into each item, so there was a common thread throughout the Nativity! I absolutely LOVE how this set turned out!
If you are interested in purchasing a set you can get it here at my etsy shop! Let me know if you are interested for a special discount! ;) Also, if you want to paint a set, I am selling the raw sets, so if you are interested in that, let me know as well! :)
