BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma -

A Broken Arrow woman has created a business out of something sweet that she enjoys doing. She made a few aprons for friends, then some for their friends.

Now she's had to enlist help to keep up with the demand.

"I have an order right now for a mom, three girls and three American Girls," said Broken Arrow businesswoman Linda Billey.

Aprons are back in a big way. Her niece Inga and her daughters Makenna and Mequell - along with a couple of American Girl dolls whose names I don't know - are modeling matching and coordinated aprons.

"It's gotten so busy, I taught my daughter how to sew so she can make aprons; my mom is on board," Billey said.

Sounds like a business: Two Hoots Crafts.

Linda Billey has been doing crafty things all her life, in and out of craft shows. She made some aprons for friends for fun, then the word got out. Now she has orders from all over.

She also has a consignment space she has in a Cherry Street salon.

Rick Wells: "Still fun?"
Linda Billey: "It's still fun, sometimes crazy, but still fun."

Makenna, 7, likes that she and her doll have matching headbands and aprons. When they cook together they make hamburgers.

Linda says the hardest part is picking the fabric. She focuses on color rather than pattern.

Upstairs is where the business gets done. That's where she cuts and sews. She says her daughter is her IT person, and she's got her on Facebook.

"We've only been up a week on Facebook, and I've got orders from other states," Billey said.

She's finishing this off with a little rick-rack, some zigzag trim.

"A little rickrack - RickWells get it? Linda asked.

A little rickrack, you've got an apron. A little Rick Wells, you got a story.
