An apron creation!
With the danger of completely overdoing it, I made this apron utterly and wholly for ME! It’s my lucky day!
I made it with my booth design in mind because I plan to wear it for my summer shows.
As I was working on this, I thought of how my grandmothers possibly made their aprons; taking a piece of fabric and making it work. This linen, aqua polka dot wasn’t quite enough for two aprons (& I wanted two; 1 for submission & 1 just for me ~ although, I’m so in love with this polka dot that I’ll be keeping them both), …anyway, as I was laying another apron across the fabric to use as a pattern, I decided that I could make this work for two aprons if I pieced some of the contrasting fabric along each side.
I also added a left-over piece of one of the shears that I used in my booth to the under-side of the apron.
I love everything about this apron – it is most certainly my favorite one yet. I did a few things out of necessity & even accidentally that I will now incorporate into others.
