Sharing Another Handmade Crafter & A New Friend
It's that time of year again girls! We're off to the business of holiday baking and creating our menus for those wonderful family gatherings to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas! With that thought in mind for all you ladies big and small, I would like to introduce you to a lovely lady who creates the cutest and most festive aprons! Her name is Iris, and she has an online Etsy shop called Mimi's Needle and Thread.
Iris creates many other things too, like crocheted beverage cozies, crocheted or knitted hats for women and little girls, hand made accessories for babies, dolls, plus a whole lot more. She has been sewing for over 30 years, loves to do custom orders to give you something no one else has, and she is just the sweetest funniest lady. I just love her and I'm so glad to now call her my friend.
She recently had this apron listed and I loved it! (shown below). I love chickens and roosters and when I saw this, it just had to be mine. She also did one for my lil granddaughter Emma which I just gave her on her birthday. Now her mommy wants one, so Iris is making that up for her and we are going to start our baking together for the holidays come this week. Emma and I love our aprons! They are superbly made, and from 100% cotton, so we can just throw them in the washer and dryer, and get back to more days of having kitchen fun!
Here's my Emma in hers.
Cute Print Isn't It!?

I love Iris's combinations of fabric prints.
Well now I want to share her aprons especially her holiday ones. Iris creates aprons for moms, little girls, and even for your little one's dolly, and they can all be matching too!
When visiting her site, Look for her Dolly, Mommy, and Me sets.
Here are a few for you to view! (hehe I sound like a poet!)
If you like the design and style in one of the sets and just want one not the set,
...Just ask Iris! Or, if you like the fabric and want a different style...Just ask Iris!
She's easy peasy and willing to pleasy! (lol I'm on a roll!!!),
Geesh wondering what the HECK was in my milk today!
