Garden Apron


I've seen a few of these made and I think they are so adorable. I wanted to give it a shot, but couldn't find a template. I drew mine freehand and I don't love the way it turned out, but I wasn't about to waste this awesome Four Seasons d.p. I did faux stitching around the apron. I added eyelets and ribbon for the ties. And my favorite part is the pocket I made with the tag punch. I just turned it upside down when I attatched it to the apron. I stuck a few seed packets inside and there you have it. My boys have been begging me to let them start a garden and I wasn't anxious to do it, but this card was a little bit of a push to get me going.
