I finished a reversible apron for my friend’s custom order and finally managed to get some shots in before the sun went down today.
The light blue fabric has tiny chocolate brown polka dots on it, which I think is a beautiful color combination.
The other side is a busier pattern with greens and blues.
I like to make my aprons with extremely long ties so that the wearer can tie it in the front if she wishes.
This apron is the final item for this custom order. My next project is two bibs for another friend’s order. I’ve only recently made my first bib, but I really enjoy working on such a small scale.
Last week, I got to rummage through boxes filled with craft supplies that my coworker’s grandmother has been collecting for the last 40 years. There were crochet supplies, beads, old patterns, craft magazines, unfinished projects, quilt squares and lots and lots of fabric. I ended up only taking a very small box of fabric remnants and several packages of bias binding.
I opened one package and saw on the label that they’re from 1971. The packaging is in perfect condition, and the binding fabric looks brand new. It’s hard to believe these are older than I am.
I love knowing that an avid crafter’s supplies are not going to waste.
