Newest Creation

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

This purple ruffled apron was inspired by a duvet cover of my grandmothers.  The purple small floral fabric (duvet cover) was in a box of old linens that were stored at my mothers.

I knew I had to incorporate it into an apron somehow…………

After throwing some fabrics together…………voila! this sweet apron came to life…and is looking for a home on etsy.

 

Inspirations

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

It all starts with one little piece of fabric.  This one happened to be a piece of vintage turquoise and brown with designs that took me back to the 50’s ………..when kitchen stoves and refrigerators were acually turquoise!

 

Then of course we have to throw in some brown.

 

Let’s put some stars into the equasion…………..just because.  Well, actually just because I love stars!

These three fabrics were going to become a fabric postcard.  But, I thought I would try my hand at a half apron.  Of course, I have no pattern for a half apron.  No problem, hey! I’ll just make one up……………so out comes the graph paper……….
scissors………
ruler…….
tape measure………….
swearing………..

And a new pattern has been accomplished, and the cutest chic little apron has been born.

As many of you know I love creating.  My passion is fabric.  I love to mix fabrics, never knowing where the disign will take me.  I am never sure if it will end up a postcard, purse, or a piece of wall art.

I am sooo in love with my newest creations.  Aprons.  Yes, the woman that does not cook anymore, is absolutely head over heels in love with aprons. 

So, of course I have to design some (many).  The full aprons were based on a pattern, but the half aprons with the sassy ruffles are my pattern.  

If you don’t hear from me for awhile, just look under the piles of fabric………(or on etsy

I’m there somewhere……………
