creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

apron creations…

OK…I promise to move beyond aprons.  One of my goals for the weekend was to get a few made and between district playoffs for boy’s basketball I was able to get 5 made.

The apron pictured above is similar to the one in my last post.  I had just enough of the soft, vintage plaid to make two and the white piece is a table topper cut in half so I worked that into both as well.  The pocket has a few fun features on it so I’m hi-lighting that here.

This apron was an experiment that I love and will definitely make more.  I really wraps around well and feels good on.  I made it more for vendor use rather than kitchen use.  I think that it would actually wash OK, but because it’s burlap, I won’t guarantee that just yet.

My favorite finishing touch on each one of my aprons is a snippet of this T.V. ribbon from a turn of the century Belgium warehouse.

Both aprons are $35

  1. Those aprons are beautiful! I keep postponing making an apron and I’m not sure why … this inspires me to get moving!
