It's Getting Hot in Herre!

I hope there's a fireman around here, because you are smokin'!

OK, that was lame. I know. The above picture is a close-up of the fabric I used to make a gift for a good friend of mine. She sorta has a thing for firemen. So I when I found the above fabric, I KNEW I I wasn't quite sure what I was going to make with it but, come on, check out that 'stache!

But then I found this pattern from Vanilla House Designs for the Friday Night Apron:

Perfect! After much consideration over what type of coordinating fabric to use, this is what I came up:

For the life of me, I could not get a good picture. I keep blaming my poor photography on bad lighting, but I'm thinking it's my camera. Yep, definitely my camera. Not me. So here are a few of the random shots I took. They're not all that great but it will give you an idea of how it turned out.

I think it turned out pretty good and it was a HUGE hit! You gotta love a cheesy, beefcake fireman!


  1. Why didn't you have Big Daddy model it?? It looks FABULOUS!

  2. what a fun gift, you did great and I'm sure it was a huge hit!

  3. Nan - I tried to have Big Daddy model it. I guess there are some things he just won't do.
    Sherry - Thanks! I think it was a huge hit.....10 minutes of laughing hysterically is a good thing, right?
