I was in Lucy's apron swap again. This time, the theme is Fall and Pies.
My partner is Tracey and she preferred to have an apron she could wear anytime of the year. The one thing she stated on her 'list of likes' is that her favorite color is red.
I happen to know she LOVES the 50's and the whole "Atomic Housewife" thing.
I can show the apron because Tracey got it...and LOVES it!
Isn't is precious? I almost couldn't part with it! I'm seriously tempted to go back and buy more fabric to make me one just like it.
I found this fabric at Hancock's. It is one of those fabrics that has a double border. I cut the 2 borders off, used one to make the pockets and one to make the ties. As you can see, I made the ties extra long so she can tie it in front or back.
The pattern is the "Loreli" from the book "A is for Apron."
We had to include a potholder and recipe which I did. I also sent her a bunch of pretty scrap fabrics that she can use for her latest obsession....making fabric covered buttons.
