I can sew!!!!

I'm so excited! My mommy took some time this week and taught me how to sew! I didn't want to get Jess just a bunch of stuff off of her registry, so as part of my wedding gift to her, I made my very first apron :) I also got her some baking stuff from her registry that I thought went together nicely. She got the apron part of it a little bit late, but it was handmade by me with love, so it was worth it, hehehe.

It all started with a trip to Joann's to pick out a pattern and fabric. I fell in love with this pattern,

but of course, they were out of it. So instead, Mom helped me improvise using pieces from two different patterns. We even found similar fabric, but in colors that were a little bit more "Jess". I cut it all out, and sewed it together using the sewing machine for the very first time!!!! I dont think it came out too bad for my first time... what do you think?
And here is Mrs. P modeling her new present :)
(I expect lots of baked goods Jessica!!!)
I would say I had a really good teacher. Mom says it's in the genes ;-)
