The Feathered Nest Apron Swap

This is the apron I made for Kellie in Arizona. I used a pattern from Butterick. Since I haven't made any clothing in years I had forgotten how complicated Butterick likes to make their instructions. The ruffle along the bottom made an appearance after I could not understand their directions for attaching a straight border that came to a point at the center. I think the ruffle looks so much better, don't you?

And this is the apron I received from Kelli in Utah. Look familiar? That's because she used the same pattern, just a different view. It's the prettiest aqua, brown & white fabric with birds and flowers. Thank you Kelli, it's the cutest and I received several comments when I wore it during Bunco at my house last week. Unfortunately, it didn't help me win anything but everyone loved my brownies.
