Mother's Day Apron

I saved this post for today, so the apron we gave my mom would be a surprise.  My sister got a pattern, some fabric, and then left on a study abroad. She hid it under her bed until I could get it.
The one problem was, I didn't catch that it was for my mom's birthday (at the end of the month) and not Mother's Day. I didn't know that until we were skyping with my sister, and my mom was opening the gift.
 Oops! She'll just get to enjoy it earlier in the month.
 My sister chose great fabric and a really cute pattern. I added edgestitching everywhere and doublestitching on the top of the pocket.
Here I am being  very domestic. My mom loves the apron. I also made an apron for my mother-in-law last year which has great fabric too.
