Aprons, to and from...

First off, I wanted to thank Adrienne for the most flirtastic apron imaginable! It is adorable! Also thanks for the earth-friendly tablecloth/picnic blanket. So here is me in my new apron:

Next, I wanted to post some pictures of the apron that I sent to my partner. (Sorry for the delay--computer issues!) The weekend before I signed up for the swap, I found a one yard piece of vintage-y blue fabric with graduated stars in circles. Perfect! I found it hard to find a coordinating fabric. I wanted something with red pinstripes, but all the whites of those fabrics were just too bright. Eventually, I settled on some red and white gingham that was already in my fabric stash. I used a pattern made from a vintage apron I found at an antique street faire.
So here's the front:

And here's the back:
I hope she likes it!! Happy 4th!


  1. both aprons are lovely! I like the way the back is adjustable on the second one. Way out of my sewing league!

  2. Posting for Mary...
