I’ve been building up my stash of aprons to sell at Atomic Holiday Bazaar (21 days!).

Here’s that peach gingham fabric that I mentioned in a post a few days ago. The fabric that I, at first, had no clue how to use or what to match up with. The fabric that I now adore and wish I had more of. The fabric that apparently just made me end two sentences in prepositions. Don’t judge.

I lined this apron in pale green polka dots…

…and then turned right around and made another apron in the same colors.

I even lined it in the peach gingham.

I think I may have gone a little overboard with the ricrac on this one.

I also made this colorful little number:

That pink fabric is so rich and vibrant and cheerful.

I lined this one in my favorite Amy Butler.

Alex commented yesterday that it looks like a rainbow exploded in our apartment. He’s referring to the eight million colorful bags and aprons that fill our home. They’ll (hopefully!) be gone soon!

    Wow, these look so great! I love the lining fabrics – they’re such a nice surprise when you flip the up the corner!

    Those are adorable! You are so talented. I love each one. When I saw the top one, I was like oh that is cute and then I scrolled down and I changed my mind because I liked that one better and by the time I got to the bottom I couldn’t decide because I love them all!!! Great job!

    If you don’t sell the pink & black one on Sunday, I want it! It would be perfect for a friend of mine.
