Finished! Martching aprons for Diane (Craftypod) and me!

The minute Kathryn (the Pickled Herring) posted her tutorial for the adorable apron she shared as part of the Dala Horse Craftalong, I pinned on the pattern, cut out two aprons and began sewing!

Second week of the Dala Craftalong and here are a few little guys I have made using my very simple (and free) pattern for a Dala ornament!

Most of you who know me, know that I am big time into celebrating traditions, but often in untraditional ways! The three Dalas I am sharing are definitely not traditional! But I am hoping you will enjoy them and their stories.

Tell Me What YOU Think! Can what is old be new again!

Added after post date:  This subject is so close to my heart that I believe I might not have been as clear as I wished.  So I am adding a note!
