What can I say about aprons?
1. Repurposed fabric. Most of them started life as linen table runners used for a wine event. A wash and dry and those red wine stains have gone forever.
2. Copied the proportions of an apron made by one of my sister-in-laws. Thanks Terry and Janet!
3. The pockets and patches were the fun part.
This photo shows the join down the centre. Two table runners make one apron.
Production is on-going. The next batch will have pop art animals as pockets.
Today these aprons caused several serendipitous events, most of them sewing related.
I went into Spotlight in my lunch break because I need more tape for straps and they were having a sale on all patterns (Vogues for $5!! Never before in Australia! Thanks to Thornberry for alerting me to this). There I met a lovely lady who reads my blog! I was recognised! How lovely!
The pattern sale meant most of the patterns I wanted were sold out. Of course. But one of the one I really really wanted had been put back on top of the drawers! Yeah! Glad someone else decided against this one!
I also picked up this delightful Vintage Vogue
On the walk back to work, a stylish lady walking towards me was pulling a suitcase covered in novelty fabric featuring tape measures.
Ahh, so much sewing goodness in one day!
