The Cut and Sew Apron

I love aprons.  When I bake I think slipping on an apron adds an extra special ingredient to any recipe.  I made this John Deere apron for a cupcake themed birthday present.  The entire apron pattern purchased at JoAnne's, pre-printed, and only rquired cutting and sewing for assembly.  I added a little extra dazzle with rhinestones randomly bedezzaled and a piece of lace sewn at the bottom.  And why did I choose a John Deere apron?  Well in college we both took a tractor driving class together at UC Davis and yes we actually drove a tractor and learned how to change a tractor driver.  A significant skill to know in the wilds of Los Angeles. 
The apron started with this...
No pattern needed!  Just cut and sew!  And yes, it was that easy!
. . . .and ended as this!
 I completed the birthday gift with the addition of fun cupcake liners, sprinkles, and a cupcake recipe book.  I highly recommend Karen Tack and Alan Richardson's whimsical cupcake recipe books, Hello, Cupcake!: Irresistibly Playful Creations Anyone Can Make and What's New, Cupcake?: Ingeniously Simple Designs for Every OccasionThe photographs are wonderful and the ideas so creative.
