New Crafting Apron

As most of you know, once a month I hold a Crafty Girls workshop where 18 of us get together and craft, scrapbook, eat and laugh. The workshops are a lot of fun, and I truly enjoy hosting. I am often running around to everyone that is attending, helping them, or just checking out what they are crafting. I tell myself each month that I need an apron with pockets to hold the miscellaneous things that I need to host.

Well, tonight was the night to make that apron. This is the fabric that I wanted to use:
These are four of my favorite fabrics.  
But, out of the four fabrics, this is my favorite. I love the sewing and crafting theme. My girlfriend found this fabric for me and I love the colors of the fabric. Such fun. 
I originally was going to use the red fabric for the pocket, but I felt that it covered up the main fabric too much, so I used the same fabric as the base of the apron, and I love it! 
So, here is my new apron on Ms. M. Here I go, I am going to sound like a broken record...I love how it turned out! 
I think that the ruffle along the bottom of the apron adds a "girly" feel! 
I also love the contrast of the waist band to the main fabric. I also did a double top stitch on the pocket. 
LOVE IT! 
I can't wait until April's workshop to wear my new apron!
