I decided the other night to make myself a new apron. I like the smock type of aprons so I went for that. This one is modified a bit from my original purple smock that I love. This fabric was my Grandmothers/Nannie Red’s. I only had a smallish remnant and sadly the smock is a bit too short for me. I am considering what I want to do with it now… try and sell it in my Etsy or possibly wait and see if I can refashion it to make it work somehow.
I LOVE how it turned out… the colors are wonderful and vibrant and I adore the fabrics.
I finished the edges with bias tape and made 2 pockets on the front… perfect for clothes pins on wash day or running out to the garden to pick a few peppers. The rick rack was a tribute to a dear friend of mine and I just love it.
I hope to find the time to get back in the sewing room again soon… to make one equally as cute that I can wear. I LOVE my aprons, I love wearing them… I actually do wear them. Putting one on helps me feel ready to get to work.
Here is a little something a friend sent me about aprons, I was reminded of it when I saw it on a message board that I frequent…
