There are so many cute aprons out there. And so much cute fabric. Heck! I should just make some.
So I did.
First I bought some lightweight canvas. Because quilting cotton makes great aprons, but the canvas was on sale and it had just the most pretty or adorable prints. This tropical flower print is easily my favorite of the lot.
Next, I drafted me up a pattern that looked like it would work. I tend to be a visual pattern drafter so I eyeball a lot of what I draw. The first draft wasn't perfect, but the second was pretty good, and the third even better. Then I added a pocket or three on the front. Because I love pockets, and I'm always looking for places to put things down. I even made some with contrasting binding around the edges. Extra work, but I think it looks really cool.
I've got aprons on there, of course. But also tea towels and pot holders that match, because I do like it when the things in my kitchen match. So I figured other people might like that, too.
I've also popped up some hand braided jewelry as well. Because it's fun to make, but some folks just don't have the time, or the patience, or they just don't consider themselves crafty enough to make things like that.
Take a look, if you're so inclined. I'd love to have your feedback, sewing and crafting friends. I always love good feedback.
