My Mothers favorite flowers are daisies, so I made this apron for her thinking she would pick it for her birthday out of all the ones I had made. To my surprise she picked a Cheshire cat inspired apron that I had made on a whim, ( no photos of, at least yet). She really liked this one but the bright fuchsia and purple of the other made her happy. This was my first time working with cream Cluny Lace, I was nervous but learned how to deal with it. I really recommend this type of lace now it feels nice and soft on a finished project.
So these are my yellow and blue rose aprons I used these same fabrics to make my nifty fifties apron from an earlier entry; but have taken it a lot farther . This first one with the blue background, I tried a dual-compartment pocket with an electric and baby blue striped fabric. The straps are baby yellow rose buds. I used yellow and electric blue lace; I love this lace combination. Like all my aprons They are both fully lined and with a comfy enclosed elastic waistband .
I really love how these look, similar but with there own unique qualities.
I am really into yellow lately, its never really been my favorite color, but there is something so friendly about it. I found this primrose yellow fabric with subtle lemon scroll work of it, it goes so nicely with the tiny little yellow rosebud straps and pockets added yellow and white lace on the top, bottom and pocket. It really reminds me of the Lemon meringue pie my Grandmother used to make. She passed away in August, so this one kinda makes me a little sad, yellow was her favorite color,and yellow roses her favorite flower, I Know she would of loved this one
last year I had seen this yellow lace, and thought, what would Iever use that for , and walked away, so when I found this fabric I really kicked myself, and of course I couldn’t find that yellow lace at that point, but after a while I found it ( and I have used is several projects) I would recommend buying odd colors of lace, they are hard to find and really add a lot to certain projects
I originally bought this fabric for a quilt, but as soon as I had found the bright green lace, I knew this apron was meant to be. it doesn’t show real well in photos but there is silver metallic highlighting the pattern on every piece of fabric used.
Here you can see a little more detail. and like all my apron I have added a comfy elastic waistband , and is fully lined. (I’m amazed at how many $50.00 aprons I have found on line to be just one layer of fabric thick, with that said, I hope to sell this at an upcoming apron party for $29.00)
I apologize how long it has taken me to get back to here. I have been incredibly busy; and have many thing to share. starting with my Pirate map apron with a black and white harlequin fabric. i absolutely love pirate everything so i was thrilled when i found this fabric at hancocks,
its fully lined and has an elastic waistband. I am proud to say that this is my first sold apron, it is to be a Christmas present for a pirate fan so i am very proud to share this one with you
P.S I love how one of the island on the map is called doubloon lagoon so catchy.
I love these fabric pieces I bought Stax bundles and added the green paisley and the middle piece left over from a beer garden skirt I made, its kinda hard to tell but there is a silver metallic running through the Stax bundle. I am planing a rather large square quilt, to showcase the top right corner paisley.
I have been unable to do much for a few months thanks to a back injury, I have spent this time collecting fat quarters on sale, and organizing my craft room ( ill share a photo of that one day ) and practicing my embroidery and knitting from the safety of my bed. I have many many plans now and hope to belt out a number of projects in the near future.
