Sew Crafty Friday - apron and bag

This was a busy week, but I still fit in some sewing, because two of my dear friends were having a birthday, and I wanted to give them something special.

Sandy decorates her kitchen with strawberries, so I wanted to make her a strawberry apron. I copied an apron that I have and came up with this pretty apron. I was happy with how the red bias tape accented the center panel and the pockets, which I made deeper and roomier then the ones in the original apron. It only took one yard of fabric.

Sunny loves her kitties. One of her kitties was recently laid to rest due disease. It was very heartbreaking to see him sick. I wanted to make her a special kitty bag. I have been reading a blog by Tiny Happy, who makes wonderful hand crafted items. I got the idea for the design of the bag from her.
I lined the inside of the bag with another fabric and sewed in a deep pocket to hold treasures.

If you have been sewing or crafting this week, be sure to include some photos in your blog. Then go to Shereen's blog and include your name on the list of those who are participating in Sew Crafty Friday this week.

Both projects are adorable! I love that apron! My kitchen is black/white/red and green, so you know I like the colors!
And I have 2 kitty cats, so of course I love the bag, too! You did beautiful work on both.
