In the Shop Tonight


Recently I was in the mood to create something, so I decided to come up with an apron pattern! Which, of course, had to be immediately made up in several fabrics, just to see the effect...

Chocolate Truffle



Blue Country Roses



The design for the ties was inspired by one of my sister's ideas -- I don't like tying aprons around my neck, but it can be hard to get shoulder straps to stay on. But if the shoulder strap feeds through a loop to become the waist tie, voila! The apron automatically adjust itself!

Both of them are in the shop tonight -- but my mother is begging for one, so she gets the next one!

  2. Oh, those are so sweet! I love looking at aprons, although I remiss in not using them!

    I like the Chocolate Truffle one best, but they are both adorable.

    Have a very bright, very cheerful day!

  3. Thank you!

    Miss Eyebright, I have to remind myself to use an apron, too! :-) Fortunately I'm not TOO messy when I'm cooking, but there are those splatters...

  4. Oh, how cute! I love how you scalloped the hem! And The pockets! I too really dislike the ties of the apron around my neck.

    I love wearing my apron! I wore one of mine everyday at work this summer and its now really worn, fadded and stained.It has some lovely deep pockets and things like jumpping into them. =D

  7. Oh, I love that style! What a clever way to adjust the shoulder length and waist in one step. Your chocolate truffle apron is too sweet!

  8. Ooo! Another new apron design! If I had enough money (I'm a penniless-violinist right now after returning from a violin technique workshop) I'd snatch one of those up!

  9. Ashley, thanks for adding me to your bloglist!

    Cheri, I know the feeling -- my weekly violin lessons last year left me as a penniless-violinist, too! ;-)

    Love in Christ,
