Aprons

Way back when I made a couple of aprons.  Recent events bumped their blog debut.  The first was purpose made for sewing – you heard it, a sewing apron.

20090224-debbiesapron2Debbie has been wanting one to wear to the guild sewing retreat (not until August – catches all the threads) so I made her one for her significant birthday back in January.

It is of course the lovely Emmeline Apron pattern by Sew Liberated.  I was really pleased with the fabric I found for the front and back (this lovely is reversable).  20090224-debbiesapron3Debbie and I share a love of paisley (the front) and the back features sewing themed fabric and a little applique heart.  Doesn’t Debbie look lovely in it.

The second apron was for a lovely little three year old called Elena, made with one of my favourite cherry blossom fabrics.

Have you made any aprons lately?

  1. Do you know, I haven’t made an apron since school – I never wear one at home – but that first one is so pretty, it almost looks like a dress! And you know I love the lavender colour of the second one! 🙂

  2. Yes Noah, she does look great in that apron, so young and thin…..you wouldn’t think she just had a significant birthday would you!!!!!!

  3. hmmm me thinks that someone is encouraging her fan club here 😀
