Birthday apron and card

This was my first reversible apron. I know it's not an incredible feat, but it took me some time to accomplish it anyhow. Aside from the fact that I have little craft time to myself when I can actually concentrate on what I am doing, I've only ever made single sided aprons before this. I made this one from a pattern, but decided to alter the pattern to accommodate being lined. Then since I was lining it, why not pick a pretty fabric for the lining? And if I'm picking a pretty fabric for the lining, shouldn't it also be visible? So I went ahead and made it reversible. I'm still a novice seamstress, so there are plenty of errors here, but thankfully the kind that you only notice if you look closely. Very closely I hope. Or maybe it's the kind of apron only a mother could love, but since I gave it my mom for her birthday, it's all good.

And, of course, a birthday card as well, only that took just a short amount of time, and was done with the help of a little guy (because he's like that).
