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!
