I'd rather be stitchin' than in the kitchen.
But if I have to be in the kitchen, then I really love to wear a fun apron -- that I stitched. And I love to share fun aprons too. I've finished three more aprons and am creeping ever closer to 100 aprons since I started making them in July of 2008.
This set of aprons is for Iris, my fun Twilight Quilters Coven friend and her two girls. Her birthday was at the beginning of the month, only I had in my head that it was closer to the middle, so I was totally late getting them to her. I bought the apples and pears fabric at JoAnn's last fall and some pink for the ruffle and pocket. But as I was cutting the aprons, I remembered that Iris isn't really a pink kind of girl. Her favorite color is green. So, I found a really great green to bring out the apples in the fabrics and love the result.
Iris got the aprons in the mail yesterday and already snapped a photo with her girls. Aren't they beautiful (the girls, I mean, not the aprons)? She said (about the aprons), Couldn't have been prettier if I'd gone and shopped for the fabric myself! They are so perfect! And they fit great!
This apples and pears fabric is so awesome. I put a pink ruffle with it in an apron for another friend. I can't decide which combination I like best because I love pink, but the green is so beautiful too. And I'm still having visions of ironing board covers made from the apples and pears fabric -- but I'm resisting because I have about a hundred other projects I'm in the middle of.
I've linked up over at Sew & Tell Fridays and Lit & Laundry's Finished for Friday. It is a fun way to share your finishes and see lots of other neat projects. Check it out!
