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.
Happy Friday everyone!
