Cute wise ol' owl

My partner is iknit.ipurl and she loves Owls so I of course had to applique a owl on the bib of the apron, smile! I used a great fabric that to me is a bit retro inspired it looks like bubbles. I used a blue and white swirl fabric for the applique and pocket and I accented with some orange grosgrain ribbon and some yellow buttons for eyes. I used a blue and white stripe for the neck and waist ties. I noticed when I went lurking on her blog she likes owls and a bit of vintage so Ta Da!. I found some darling measuring spoons they are so tiny and they say; smidge, nip, dash and pinch I thought they were so funny. Sometimes you will get a recipe with those terms and I have always wondered what they mean't, smile. I ordered a cute flirty apron online from etsy because my sewing machine went on the fritz after I signed up for the swap so I was in a tizzy. But I was able to sew after all and so my my partner is getting two, because I bought it with her in mind, smile! Enjoy partner. I was hestitant to post this because I am not sure how many people really loves owls and I was worried she'd read this post and not be surprised. I hope you enjoy your aprons my partner.   


  1. I can't see how your partner wouldn't enjoy this apron. Such talent in this group.

  2. those of us who are polka dot and owl lovers will be neat.
