Finished for Friday...or...Oh Look, More Aprons!

I know, I know...I posted about aprons for Vintage Thingies Thursday. But these aren't vintage aprons, these are aprons that I whipped up just this week! Now that I'm back to blogging, I wanted to start participating in Finished for Friday once again. I figure it'll keep me on my toes w/crafting and whatnot.

These two aprons are the firsts of my summer sewing projects.

This one I finished up on Sunday night for my Sister's Mom in Law, Debbie. I thought it would go nicely with her blue kitchen. These aren't my normal style of prints, but I think it turned out nicely. The fabrics really grew on me as I worked with them...the rose print has an almost cottage feel, dontcha think?I was in a blue mood(har har har) this week with my fabric choices... This fabric, however, I did love right away. I finished this apron up on Thursday. It has been a while since I used bias tape on anything. Dear Lord! I forgot that stuff can be the devil to work with! Here's a close up of the print...and my experiment with the neckstrap...
OK, I finished this one a looooong time ago, but I love it. So I'm gonna show it off too...I hope you will indulge me. I love how fabulous fabric can make the simplest of apron styles into something special. This one will eventually hit the Etsy shop...when I have enough stuff to restock it.
And one more thing...we get to bring Mya (Claire) home on Saturday! We are so excited about this furry little addition to our family!

Love the aprons! And yes, bias tape is not my friend.

I have to say, I really love your mannequin too! What fun. Thanks for joining in on Finished for Friday.

Can't wait to see pictures of the new addition.

Why is bias tape so hard to work with? I find making my own is time consuming, but so much easier to work with. And I can use fabrics that coordinate much better than the premade tape. Cute aprons. Love the owls.

I agree, Kellie, awesome fabrics make or break any sewing project. You make wonderful choices!
