And one of our family's favorite thing about camping is camp food. (Well, maybe not the kids favorite but it is mine for sure :) And when we camp we go all out on the cooking. We have even made dutch oven pies before, yummy!!
One of the big reasons I love camp cooking (besides the fact that it is delicious!) is that I am not the cook! I do a lot of the preparation but this guy is the cook. And so what could be better than making a project for the guy I love to use while camp cooking with the family we love.
So I pulled out one of Jacob's flannel camp shirts (I bet when he sees this I will be buying him a new one :) and whipped it up into this super fun Shirt Tales Apron. Isn't it so fun!!! It was super easy to make. I think I spent more time ironing out the wrinkles before starting then I actually did making the apron :)
The original Shirt Tales Apron was designed and made by Linda Turner Griepentrog and can be found in Kitchen Stitches. What a great design!!
Oh, and one last little surprise. Jacob isn't much for embellishments on his clothing so I didn't add the ric rac under the buttons, but I couldn't help but add a little hidden heart lining in the pocket. It will be so much fun when he finally finds it ;) I love that guy!!
And before I sign off, I believe I mentioned a giveaway!!! I have a copy of Kitchen Stitches up for grabs. Just leave a comment here telling me what your family loves to do together and you will be entered to win. One comment per person please and all comments are welcome :)
