Apron Strings and Prayer

I discovered this amazing template and these digital papers through Anne-Marie who gave out a link for Paper Craft Inspirations freebies.  The moment I saw it I thought of my good friend who loves to cook and collects aprons! She also loves itty bitty things so I made these itty bitty size for her! I cut out the templates and paper pieced the fronts of the aprons; added faux stitching and cut out a little something for each pocket.  I also cut our all the little "tools" that are tucked into each of the pockets.  Inside of each I have added some more of the digi paper with another little something as well.  Please bear with me for this post, I'm going to show you all the individual cards closer and the insides. (I haven't figured out how to put them together so here they are individually)  I stamped in each one a letter and wrote a quote from Cherilyn Costella who compiles a children's periodical to help them grow in Jesus! It's called the Bright Spot and my children absolutely love it! My writing isn't beautiful, but my friend doesn't mind.  Hope you don't either.

 Hope you like all the little itty bitty details! I really had fun putting these together and I'm delighted that she loved them! I couldn't wait, I gave them to her the day they were finished!  Just a mini gift to show her that I cherish her friendship and do notice what she likes! Sorry this last one turned out a bit blurry, but it gives you an idea of how she got it.
Thank you so very much for dropping by!

I'm sure your friend loved these! You can tell you put alot of time into them because there are so many details and special touches. I think our personal handwriting always adds to the project and makes it more sentimental! Great set!
