Chicken Loving Aprons

So this is a bit late but I had to share the fabulous chicken apron I received from Chrissy as part of the Chicken Loving Mamas apron swap. Chrissy sent me this beautiful apron in my favorite color scheme black/red/white. Just check out the fried egg and polka dot material on the ties and ruffle. It's hard to see but the top of the apron has smocking. Not only do I love the colors and prints on the fabric but I have to say that I think the cut and style makes me look skinnier so I love that too!

Chrissy sent some delicious looking recipes that I haven't tried yet and this beautiful red(my favorite color) chicken cookbook stand. Isn't it marvelous?!! The cute felt owl clips were included for Nature Girl. She loves them!

I started off with a totally different apron in mind but ended up making this whimsical chicken half apron for Chrissy. You know me, I love the make my aprons reversible so that you have choices for your apron wearing pleasure. You can't really see it in the picture but the chicken's wing sticks out.

The back of Chrissy's apron is a pink/brown/white polka dot print. Pink is Chrissy's favorite color so it seemed like a good choice for the reverse side of her chicken loving apron.

Chrissy has a beautiful little daughter named Regan. I had fun making a little apron, also pink polka dot on the reverse side, for Regan. I made a little stuffed chicken doll and included the book The Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza for Regan. You can see the little red hen doll nestled into the pocket on her apron.

I borrowed this photo of the chicken I made from Chrissy's blog. Stop by her blog to see more pictures of their aprons. I had a blast sewing the aprons and putting this package together for Chrissy and Regan. Thanks for a fabulous swap!
