Red Rose/White Dot Apron

red rose apron with white

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.

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.

Green dot and Pink Rose Apron

dgdggdI completed my first full apron, I am very happy with it. I originally bought this pink rose on green to make curtains in my kitchen but decided it would look great with this dotted fabric. every part of this, including the floral half apron part,  is fully lined.011

I used a cream brocade for the waistband that is elastic so you can comfortably move around in it. The top straps are partially elastic, but then ties in back, it really helps for busty girls.

Paris rose sachet

My sister in laws birthday is next week  I made her this sachet that is lace edged and stuffed with  a small amount of batting, dried lemon geraniums that I grew myself,I added some Bulgarian Rose oil that I received as a gift, it smells delightful. I absolutely love this fabric and bought 10 yards of it on a whim, ( really funny when a friend dropped by and witnessed me trying to fold 30 ft of fabric) Hope you guys like the new photos trying to step up my photography. Image

I love this oil smells so good, and I really like the wooden container the vial came in.

Daisy on Aqua Apron

DSCN0205My 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.

DSCN0207 I loved the little pink flowers on the pocket, and I think goes well with the yellow straps that feature tiny little pink flower buds.

Blue and Yellow Roses Aprons

DSCN0198So 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 .

DSCN0201Now my white background, yellow and blue rose apron has just been sold, I ship it out tomorrow,  along with my pirate apron, my first sales very excited.

DSCN0187I added baby blue lace along with the yellow lace to this one.DSCN0189

I really love how these look, similar but with there own unique qualities.
