Meet My New Apron

Remember when I mentioned over here that I planned to sew an apron to Tie-One-On for the Black & White theme? Well, here's my submission. I know, it's a little sparse on the black and white, but after staring and staring at the fabric, looking for a little inspiration, I was getting a little dizzy. I decided to use the b&w as an accent, rather than as the focus. Amazingly, I found this adorable Honeybee & Hexagon fabric almost immediately after arriving at Fabric Depot. Usually I wander around that place for hours trying to find just the right thing.


Here's a closer shot of the bee fabric. It's a new print by Michael Miller. Don't you just love it?

Spring green and aqua have become one of my go-to color combinations recently. Not sure why. Maybe because it always feels hopeful and serene. Actually, I don't even usually realize that I've picked it out. Weird, huh? Anyway, back to the apron. The pattern I used is from Amy Butler's In Stitches, and it was really easy to do. I whipped out the whole thing in just a couple of hours.

The next apron theme is Alice In Wonderland, in honor of the upcoming movie, with the idea being that everyone would submit their version of Alice's classic white pinafore. I think there's real possibility for a beautiful apron there, but I prefer to make aprons I would actually wear either in the kitchen or out & about. Maybe I'll just sit this next one out.
