cookie time apron newest finished

Can you believe there is less than a month till Christmas...

REALLY...

Where has the time gone?

Well, let's get a “jump” on the upcoming holidays by making a Super Cute Apron that's just PERFECT for all those fun Christmas Cookie baking traditions...

Whether you make those yummy slice and bake cookies or spend hours in the kitchen replicating your Grandmothers famous Sugar Cookies...

a FUN Holiday Apron using this Super adorable Gingerbread Man Applique will be sure to make your Baking traditions EXTRA Special!

Let's get started...

I found this really nice Lime Green and White striped adult sized full body apron, that has an adjustable strap around the neck...it even has a couple pockets below the waistline.  Believe it or not...it was at my local Home Goods Store!  Be sure to check out this fabulous place!

For this special Holiday Apron I used the Gingerbread Man Applique Design in combination with the Smiley Monster Font and the Sunny Beach Font.  Be sure to check out the Tools of the Trade at the bottom of the blog post to view all the details of what was used, including the sizes of the designs, for this cute project!

Here she goes...

As you can see, I used my 8X12 Full Fast Frame that was prepped with sticky stabilizer.  I also fused a piece of No Show Mesh to the backside of the apron for permanent hold during those repeated washing's...YEP, I'm a MESSY baker!

And...you guessed it...

I threw a piece of WSS on top!

My sweet little Red Wonder Clips give my apron that EXTRA hold in place...so nothing is moving that isn't suppose to!  LOL! 

Be sure to check out the extra outline stitch that Teresa used around the eyes and the buttons on the Gingerbread Man...this little detail makes them POP off your garment!

My finished design size is approximately 6.75” Tall X 8.75” wide and has 17,062 stitches in it...

All this cuteness with only ONE Fabric Panel for the Applique...how sweet is that?

Now...

Who's ready for some Holiday Baking?
