Lordy, I had been wanting to make aprons for the boys for so long.  It was truly years.....and such a simple thing, but yet I never got to it.  But this year, for Nate's handmade birthday gift, I finally tackled the fabric and rustled this out.  I asked him to choose the fabric, because I have learned one needs to include him in major decision making, esp. regarding all things wearable.  He chose this swirly fabric, which is repurposed from an Ikea cushion cover.  It literally took me 15 minutes to cut and sew.  I didn't even use an iron!  (what a cheater I am)  Happy to say that he likes it and wears it while cooking and crafting.
 Although I can take no credit for Milo's lovely apron.  His was a Christmas gift from Aunt Liz this year.  She did an excellent job.  This was the maiden voyage for Milo's apron.  The boys did spin art.  Milo had not a spot on him.  Nate, on the other hand is another story.  Ah, how wonderful it is to experience the difference between two brothers.

 (don't mind Nate's pained expression, that is the face he makes when you ask him to smile)
A bit of their creative endeavor....
