Cutting the Apron Strings.....


no really, I'm cutting apron strings! I made an apron about a year ago when some friends and I got together for a crafting day and I've always wanted to make more. So, with a little encouragement from a friend I decided to make a few to sell at our upcoming open houses. I tried to choose a variety of prints to make it interesting although 'vintage' was my original goal.
I'm making two of the half aprons and 3 full size ones. The paisley and polk-a-dot prints are for the half aprons and the cherries, pears/apples, and sushi prints are for the full size aprons. I have a long ways to go yet but I thought I'd show you my progress so far....I tried to get the mundane parts done first.....so, here's the waist ties and the neck ties for the full size aprons. I'm not planning on adding the lovely bow that's shown on the pattern....just a little too 'flouffy' for my taste:) Hope you're having a great day...thanks for checkin' in!

  3. You're only making 5!!!! By the time I get to your show they're all gonna be sold out, not fair. The material is awesome and I love the pattern as well. Can we special order them?

  4. Yes, hopefully they will be all sold out..but, lucky for you, you have an inside scoop with the 'andster' and she can work something out for you!

  5. I'm up for an apron too. The material you choose is a step up from grandma's regular old apron. I have to put your show on my calendar, don't want to miss it.
