No tricks.. just treats

When my mom and dad left on their mission I made them a pair of pillowcases for them to use while away (so they would have sweet dreams of their favorite daughter) They tell me they use them everyday and love them. I was afraid they might get worn out and they would need a replacement so I came up with an idea...

Recently I decided to send them a little care package and inside was a fun Halloween and Thanksgiving surprise....
Pillowcases! A set to use for October and a set to use for November.
But the surprises didn't stop there... I also found a panel for this adorable Halloween apron.
I just couldn't resist the cute skeleton on the front.
I wanted to jazz it up a bit from just the plain panel, so I backed it with orange fabric, added the ric-rac and then decided to try something I've never done before... I made yo yo flowersThese little guys were so much fun to make and I loved using the Halloween colors.Miranda even caught the yo yo bug and made several for herself.
Mom just loved the pillowcases and apron and can't wait to wear it when she hosts FHE in October.

Ok, how stinkin' cute is that apron! I need you to help me with my sewing skills, and I'll help with some digi tips. Love them, and so mom.

That is a VERY cute and fun idea. I didn't know you could also sew! Where did you find the pattern for the apron?
