Zoe's Hot Mama ...

I sent my partner's apron out last week and she got it so now I can share what I made her. I never imagined someone would ask for me to be their partner.
The funny thing is that I bought some really cute fabric with a coffee and bistro type print on it......thinking that as the host, I could just go through and pick someone who would FIT the fabric I had bought. HAH!
So when Zoe asked me to be her partner, I had to rethink a bit as HER favorite hot beverage is HOT CHOCOLATE!
I couldn't find any fabric locally so I came up with this for her:



Here is a close up of the appliqued cup.........

Here is a full view, thanks to April, the apron wearing dressform!
I wanted it to have a sort of bistro look to it but wasn't sure how Zoe felt about a short apron. This one is a bit longer but still has that feel to it. And yes, I tried it on.........to be sure.......... :-)


I didn't take a photo of the lining but it is a brown with pink polka dot cotton. You can sort of see it in the first photo on the bottom right, I tried to flip the edge up a wee bit.
Overall, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.......

That's so cute! What a great way to customize! I just picked up a vintage apron for a wee girl with crayon slots in the front. So smart!

Val, I had to laugh when I read this post. I signed up for this swap thinking the exact thing! I bet we both bought the same "coffee" fabric at Hobby Lobby. I also have the fabrics you used for your apron. :) My partner is a hot chocolate lover too, so I had to go fabric hunting myself. :) Guess I'll save the coffee fabric for a future project. Thanks for hosting such a fun swap.
