Yep! I have now posted 100 blog entries!
AND................ I am working on my newest pattern!
And you, my dear friends, get to celebrate with me!
Oh, and there I go again with my wild overuse of exclamation points!!!!!
This is the prototype for my newest pattern. This is "Yaya's Apron".
I LOVE THIS APRON!
Since there was no pattern for this apron, I started playing around. This one was my prototype.
I fell in love with this style years ago when I found an apron that my mother-in-law had been keeping. This apron had been belonged to her mother, hand sewn from a flower sack during the depression. I have worn this apron for years, but alas, it is so worn and thin that I can no longer mend it. Hence the need for me to make one for myself. And since I loved this style so much, I figured that other woman may as well. I made my prototype from a Michael Miller fabric in my stash called "Pod Posey". Sadly I do not have enough left to make another one.
This apron uses nearly every scrap from 1 yard of fabric.
(Sorry for the ugly rear view of my adjustable dress form. I think I need to make a cool cover for it.)
I love this apron because it goes over the head, and does not need to be tied on to stay put.
It offers great coverage yet fits many body types.
Doesn't this one make you want to bake cupcakes?
You do know that I love cherries, right?
Easy vintage style, but with good coverage to protect your pretty clothes.
So........do you like it?
I will be asking for testers soon, as I hope to have this pattern available
for sale as quickly as possible.
But for now, and to celebrate my 100th post, I am offering a "Yaya's Apron" as a giveway!
Yes! Just in time for Holiday baking, one of you will receive a Yaya's Apron in the fabric of my choice, as my gift.
