The Red Apron

Some days you feel especially lucky and all is good. Woke up peacefully this morning without an alarm clock at 6:00am. Started on my orange marmalade prepped the day before. Watched the sun rise through glowing clouds while the scent of orange filled the house. Fabric store opened early at 8am today. 40% off regular price item, check. 10% off total purchase, check. Perfect selections from the scrap bin. By noon, eight jars of marmalade were canned and I finished my first apron project! No pattern, just a lot of thinking, prepping, re-prepping, and trial and error. Who doesn't love a red apron? Next one, brown and pink polka dots with peeks of floral? Or pear print with vintage blue and yellow buttons? I think yes and yes.

  1. Adorable! I love it! I totally have a red apron with big pockets. They are best and have protected many a shirt from tomato splatters. You need to start stelling these (or do you already?)

  4. Ok, so I think after my third one I'll be ready to talk shop. If you have a particular color scheme in mind, let me know and I'll see what swatches come together.
