My oh my, I am loving how this apron turned out for my parnter in the Crafty Cooks Apron Swap over on Flickr.
I was lucky enough to pick up some gorgeous Joel Dewberry Fabric on a recent trip to the Twin Cities, and not only that its Sateen fabric in other words decorator weight fabric, it’s a little bit more expensive than normal quilting fabric but its got a beautiful feel to it and it’s a little bit more sturdier, so it’s the perfect apron fabric. I also think I might have enough to make myself a bag, would be the perfect weight for bag making too.
The fabric I chose is a pretty bright strong patterned fabric, so I made this apron reversible, so when my partner is in the mood for not being so bright she can wear it the other way round!
And here is a closeup , I lined the pocket, to make it extra sturdy and also added some pink ric rac.
I am absolutely loving this apron and to be honest I really want to keep it for myself, maybe I will if she doesn’t notice it! But I am sure she will. I don’t think she has any idea that I am her partner, but then again, I have no idea who my partner is either! I will be equally happy to receive a handmade apron by someone else, just knowing that someone has taken the time to think about me and put some effort into sewing something just for me, makes me happy.
So what do you think partner?
