Hot Drinks for Hot Mommas

Here is the apron I made for the Hot Drinks' for Hot Mommas Apron swap. The pattern is called "The Sassy Apron" designed by Lucy Byrd.

It is a 2 sided apron for when you are working hard in the house and the door bell rings. You can just whip off your dirty apron and turn it over and you have on a nice clean apron for company. (That is unless you’ve already turned it over once.)

Here is a close up of the fabrics I used. The theme was hot drinks. So I have cocoa cups and mugs on one side, and the other side is dots that can be the foam on top. Then the ruffle looks like the steam rising warmly off it.

Of course I couldn't send it off without 2 of my favorite cocoas, raspberry and amaretto, and a hand made cocoa mug.

I love the brown steamy fabric. And also the foamy fabric. It's fabulous!

The dotted fabric makes me think of mini marshmallows in differing stages of meltedness.

I am kind of excited now about amaretto. I thought it was another name for a type of coffee and thus taboo. But I just looked it up and found that it is not. It is a type of Liquor but that a non-alcoholic powder is sometimes added to coffee and hot chocolate. I love almonds! I'm going to look for this and try it.
