Fruity Apron with Strawberry Appliques

Here is the simple butcher style apron
I made for my daughter, Stephanie.
She received it today in Spain.
She wanted one with strawberries, which I
couldn't find, but did find material 
that had strawberries in the mix . . .

She loves red and green, so I thought this contrasting
green/white material worked well.
I cut the strawberries from craft felt, 
and threaded short white stitches for the "pits"
and left over green material for the leaves.
I machine stitched the strawberries down
with a short zigzag stitch.
Stephanie loved it! 
She even Skyped me to model if for me: )

Happy Sewing, Y'all!
