Back in the Saddle

Well, I know it’s been a while, but trust me, you haven’t missed anything interesting.  Fall is in the air, I’m feeling all crafty and so I’m back!  To keep me from bailing on you again, I’ve gone ahead and signed up for Did You Make That?‘s Apronalong!  I even figured out how to put the little button up on my sidebar!  While I do have the apron pattern that Karen is using (Butterick 4087), I will instead be trying to complete an apron that I bought fabric for three years ago,  one of the many UFOs cluttering up the craft room these days.

So, yes, I have had this fabric for a few years now, picked up from Mill End here in town.  The stripe is a ticking, so it is kind of fuzzy looking, it’s not the picture.  The other two are cottons from Glenna Hailey and Maywood Studio’s Rise ‘N Shine.  They seemed perfect for a retro-inspired garden apron.  I did have some red bias tape somewhere that I was going to use for edging, but I might be brave and try to make my own out of the floral fabric with Karen’s help ;).

I’ll be working with My Byrd House‘s clothespin apron tutorial for a pattern starting point.  Since I want to use this apron for harvesting in the garden, there are some tweaks that will need to be made, so off to the sketchbook I go.  Wish me luck!
