Ah roses is there anything more simple while still being so elegant? I fell in love with this rose fabric and it took a long time for me to cut into it, I’m very pleased with how it came out. Like all my apron this is fully lined. The attached half apron is white dot on white very subtle but I think it adds a lot.
I added apple green topstitching to the rose fabric, and finished off with red and white lace. I have started to refer to this pattern that I have created as a “tartlett apron”
I am such a sucker for dots,I find them so sweet and simple. I made this baby blue with white dot apron, it, like all my aprons are fully lined. Its hard to tell but the fully lined attached half apron is white paisley. I added 2 layers of lace baby blue and white.
I am a huge fan of they color grey, I think its entirely under appreciated, I found this cream rose on grey fabric, I really loved it but was afraid it was too old-timey, I paired it with this grey geometric pattern and i think it complemented it a lot.
I added this white lace, I think the lace pattern ties the pattern from the two fabrics together.
My mom told me the other day that there was a nest just outside my sisters window, When I visited for my sisters birthday I was so excited to see this, I took this photo still inside the house through the front window. its hard to tell but there are 5 of them. I really thought that the nest was beautiful there are still dried flowers attached to the stalks that are weaved in.
A few weeks earlier I had went to my sisters rose bush to clean it up a bit after all the blooms died and I found this little guy just staring at me,he wasn’t scared so I took this quick photo
He seems to live at the very bottom of the bus,h in the center of where the canes branch out, He will climb to the top of the rose bush look around then snuggle back into his thorny lair.
I finally finished my first commissioned apron. This is a fully reversible, 6 aprons in 1, and triple thick ,this is a heavy duty apron.
here it is reversed
She really wanted an apple and rooster apron, after searching 6 fabric stores for the right apple I came across this gem.
I never really wanted an apple fabric until now. I am actually thinking of making my self a dress with it. The pockets are copper metallic dot, and the black has tiny black apple blossoms that don’t really show on here. This was a lot of firsts for me, first making ruffles for a project, first collars ( free formed them I don’t even own a pattern with a collar) and first triple lined, all my others are dual layers. Took my 5 days in total.
I am really pleased with this photo I took from my garden. Bachelors Buttons, also known as cornflower is the source of the color cornflower blue. This beautiful flower retains its color very well when dried and is even edible, tasting similar to a clove
