The ugliest apron ever

Okay, here's the ugliest apron ever. Ignore the grumpy looking old goat. He was ironing and I interrupted him. He wouldn't let me tie the apron so he's holding the strings in the back. This fabric has little snowmen all over it.

















Wait! Where did the grumpy guy go? I tripped over a cat and nearly fell. That's why he's smiling. Again, he wouldn't let me tie the strings. Men!

















I thought about sending a really pretty apron for the white elephant exchange and then decided that after 12 years of receiving half-burned candles and 20-year-old boxes of candy as gifts, an ugly apron was appropriate.

What's so ugly about it??? You should see the one I made out of a bedsheet. Should I add that I had no pattern? That I wanted to make it big enough to wrap all the way 'round since I like to dust my hands on my rear? And it's gathered?

Ewwwww.

Annie, I'd love to see it. This one just didn't do it for me. I think it's the poinsettias or something.

Sue, what pattern did you get?

Yes, my hubby is a good sport.
