Limelight Design Team theme challenge

Hello, friends:}

On the 6th of each month, Limelight's DT has a themed challenge. This month, Mandy asked us to make a project incorporating fabric. This theme is called "Fabulous Fabric". I love to sew...."sew" this was a fun project! I made two aprons. 
My first apron is called the "dingbat apron". I wish I could take credit for this idea--but I saw it on a TV show about a year ago. And I've wanted to make one since! It is for "dingbats" who don't know how to cook. **NOTE:: I don't think I'm a dingbat in the kitchen...but when I was making my matching card...I accidentally put the wrong conversion on it!! You can't see it since it is covered up! Eh. This apron has several cooking measurements and conversions on the front. They are written upside down because the cook needs to read them while cooking! The apron also should look like ledger paper. My paper that I used on my card was yellow with lime green lines. The sewn green lines are hard to see far away--but if you are looking at the apron up close--it looks just like ledger paper. 
These are close-ups of the apron--not the greatest pics...those lime green lines are hard to see:{
The matching card uses real ledger paper--this DP would go well with Limelight's Cosmo Cricket~ The Boyfriend or October Afternoon~ Report Card. The stamps are Unity stamps--lots of Unity stamps available at Limelight!! The measuring cup has white flocking (also found at Limelight) for flour! Super cute!!
The flour flocking--not the greatest pic--but you get the idea:}
The second apron I made is called a belly apron. It is for expecting mothers. The cool thing for mothers-to-be is to wear normal shirts and cover your belly with an apron. The pic of this apron is down near the waist of the mannequin; however, if you were pregnant, you would wear it up near the top of your belly. This is double-sided. I made it for my friend, Court. She is due in June. 
The matching card uses the same fabric for the base and solid kraft, green, and yellow card stock (lots of solid card stock colors available at Limelight). I also used a Unity butterfly stamp (Limelight carries several butterfly stamps). The pink burlap string is also available at Limelight!! 

I really enjoyed this challenge! Please check out the other Limelight DT members to see what they created:
