The perfect apron

During one of our late night "3 Of Us" get togethers, we got to talking about aprons (as you do, LOL). Tracey, Linda and I all love aprons, but the style of our Label Crew apron that we had planned to make just wasn't quite the style that we were looking for.

Linda declared that she had the perfect apron hanging in her pantry...she had bought it at some markets many years earlier, and it had been her favourite ever since!

The style was just your normal, tie-around-the-waist type, but the addition of a hand towel was the much time to you spend looking for your tea towel while cooking? Either that, or you have it draped over your shoulder? We all had to agree...Linda's was the perfect apron!

So I took it home, and set about making a proto-type....with a Susan twist :)

I chose some of my favourite Flower Sugar fabric, added some polkadots and a cute little mushroom label (thanks Lisa!)and created the cutest apron I've ever seen :)

Now all we have to do is catch up on our Label Crew projects (wow, they mount up fast!) and then we can make aprons together :) I've done my bit!

Have a fantastic Monday

Adorable Susan - what a cleaver design. Love the sugar flower fabric - looks too pretty to actually use.

Linda said...

OH Yes thats it ..THE PERFECT looks amazing. Seeing as you have made yours and know exactly what you are doing surely it wouldn't be too much trouble to whip up two more :)

That really is the perfect apron, clearly invented by a woman! LOL
Love the colours too!

What a great idea....its perfect! I'm always wiping my hand over myself because I can't find a towel. Its so pretty too!
