tooled up and ready for action!

well....here it is...the apron i started before Christmas as a gift to my sister...but then decided it just wasn't *her* has had a little makeover courtesy of Leigh~Ann's toolbelt apron project in Style School!
i had already made the basic apron with the pockets and the appliqued flowers...
but now i've added three bookrings suspended from ribbon loops attached with gromlets to hang tools like DSST and my rotary cutter...
****hint****
if you decide to have a go at this...see how i've made the ribbon lengths different to allow tools to hang more comfortably?

on the other side i've added a lush velvet ribbon loop to stash my scissors...and just to finish it off i have embroidered my signature too...dotting the i with a cute flower shaped eyelet!
now...i must go and created something...i am ready for anything! lol
