Five on Friday

Last week I didn't have time to join Amy's blog hop because of a crazy week.  I did a lot of working in the yard.  I was having computer issues and just decided to ditch the computer instead of get angry about it.

I was digging around in my craft room and realized I have a ton of fabric stashed!   Much of it is in 1-2 yard increments because I used to host a bunch of apron swaps.  Part of me wants to make a bunch to sell on etsy and part of me wants to make a buch to wear and use as gifts.

Anyway, I made some aprons and thought I'd share them with you this week! 

The first one was from a challenge I hosted in June. (Channeling June Cleaver) 

It has the CUTEST kitchen fabric that I adore. I love how it turned out but sadly, it doesn't fit me.   I used a pattern from the book "A is for Apron."  
Instead of tearing this one apart and cutting it down, I sent it to a friend.  I've made notes on the pattern for future use though.  The pattern is cut on the bias and super easy to make.

The second one is a little half apron I made copying an apron I currently use and love.  It is Day of the Dead and polka dot fabric.

These two aprons are my favorite "work horse" apron.  I made these for one of my best friends from school and her mom.  They both do serious canning in the summer and I thought they'd like to wear something fun.  I love the cherry fabric in the first one, very retro.  I used the DOTD and polka dot fabric on the second one.  I adore sugar skulls and thought my friend would like it.  She was always such a BAD influence on me!  hahahaha!

These two are made from the same fabrics, just put together differently to use up all I had left.  I love the show "Mad Men" and one day I want to host a themed party. (Behind the times, I know....but better busy than bored, right?)

 I'm not sure WHICH apron I want to keep for that....both are so cute.  I tend to lean toward bistro styles so I'll probably keep the one on the left for myself. Plus, I used a reversible ribbon for the waistband that I just LOVE.
 The one on the right is equally precious, it has rickrack on the bottom edge that ends in the back with medium black buttons.  I added a little canted pocket for fun.

There you have it!  My 6 for Friday!  Lol!  Please blog hop to the other participants by clicking HERE

Happy Friday everyone!
