Disney/Pixar Blog hop

Welcome to our Disney/Pixar Blog hop if you are stopping by after viewing Lori's blog Scrappin' My Stress Away, Thank you for hopping along.

For my blog I created a Minnie Mouse Apron. This is a pink apron with Minnie Mouse all over it. I used a red pipping around the edges. I used a red with white polka dots to accent this apron(match her bow).
This Apron just slips over your head and ties in the back waist area. You can make a Big bow to match Minnie's. I ruffled all around the bottom border. I also put a solid pink backing material behind the Minnie Mouse print to make it more sturdy.

Please Leave a comment to enter and win this beautiful apron. I will announce the winner on April 10th. Good Luck!!

Thank you for stopping by, now hop on over and visit Marlo Scrap'n Tote Blog

International Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to our blog hop about international family traditions. I grew up in Arizona. I am of the Navajo tribe. I grew up speaking Navajo, and English is my second language. We have many ceremonies in our culture for different stages in our lives. My family members make jewelry, rugs, baskets and dolls, as well as other items used in ceremonies.

Since moving off the reservation and away from my family. I do not have the same opportunities to participate in our traditional ceremonies. What I like to do is sew and scrapbook. I have found that, I really enjoy making aprons. I make aprons for my family for all occasions, mostly birthdays and Christmas. I also sew other items and hope you all take a look at it.

This apron that, I have created for this blog hop is a coffee theme. I have sewn piping around the edges, made little pockets, and ruffles at the bottom.  This fabric is by Debbie Mumm.  I really like the browns, pinks and blues. I accented it with a pink material with polka dots also by Debbie Mumm.

I  hope you enjoyed my apron that I created for this blog hop, and the insight into my culture.

Leave me a comment and become a follower of my blog.  I will enter all comments from this blog post into a give away for this apron that I will announce on Sunday April 3 2011 @ 12pm!!!
