An Apron for M - or Why do I always end up making Pink things?

About a year ago, I made an apron for a swap, and several of my friends kind of fell in love with it. M finally bought some fabric and notions and asked me to make her one.

I think it came out pretty cute, though VERY pink. And I hope to never make anything with bias tape again.

A few weekends ago, I got together with M to help her make some earrings for her bridesmaids (you may remember this post about my earring experiment that went out of control). During our crafting day, M posed the idea that perhaps she could make bracelets to match the earrings, and true to form, I began experimenting.

Last night, I finished this:

Although I am happy with the results, it took much longer than I would like, but I have an idea which might help speed up the process. It's sad that I have to go to work now, instead of playing with my beads.
