This is a project that I saw on Sew Mama Sew a few weeks ago, and I decided that I needed to make a couple. One for myself, one for my mother. I think the blue and green one will have to be for my mother - she is a more avid gardener than I am, and I think the darker colors will hide dirt better. I don't garden as much, so the lighter color might stand a chance.
All of my fat quarters came from Sew to Speak, but I can't really say who the designers are. One is an Anna Maria Horner print. I absolutely love the ties - this is a Michael Miller bias tape. I have so many ideas for this notion. I'd like to have a messenger bag with this around the edges, and I'd like to have either a skirt or a top (maybe both) with this for trim. One thing at a time.
It's a really fun project, and the apron looks fantastic on my beautiful, skinny daughter who was kind enough to model for me. I think they'll be fine for my mother and myself, but if a person is too much bigger, they may need to use larger pieces of fabric so that the apron covers the entire front of their waist. But this is just a suggestion - I don't think you'd want it to look too narrow in the front.
The other day at Target, my daughter fell for a pretty floral summer dress - pinkish-purple with ruffles. My immediate response was "I can totally make that". So I plan to. Soon.
Have a great weekend!
