S.E.A.S.O.N.S. Greetings!

Just finished packaging up my swap items. I had such a good time making the apron and picking out my tuck-ins. I hope that my partner likes everything. I chose the word SEASONS. I was having such a hard time coming up with a word to use that had 7 letters in it. I finally decided on my word since this is the holiday season.
The apron was a bit hard to photograph without modeling and had I modeled it then I wouldn't have had anyone to take the photo tonight since my husband is on shift till Wednesday. It's a reversable apron with a full back. This was my first time making an apron like this and it was a little tricky but after I figured it out it was so much fun. It also has three pockets on each side. I really hope my partner will model the apron and post photos so everyone can see the back side. I also added some very traditional looking embroidery to the front pocket on one side.

  1. Very nice! I love the embroidery that you added to the apron. I bought an embroidery machine but can't master the hooping process so my projects don't look nice and professional like yours does.

  2. I don't hoop most of my projects. I only hoop the stabilizer. I then use a temporary embroidery spray adhesive and sometimes pins and attach it to the stabilizer. Once you get part of the design done then it's tacked down really well and I haven't had any problems with bunching or shifting.

  3. Chrissy,
    Is there a certain brand of spray adhesive that you would recommend? I would like to give your way a try as the way I've done in the past has failed miserably! If you have any other hints please send me a email. Thanks!
