New Aprons

Cross another thing off my crafty to do list. I finished this red apron for the Summer Fun Apron Swap. Red is my favorite color so I love this one. I've checked out my partner's blog and I think she likes red too. A few weeks ago I saw a clothespin apron that Tracey had made over at Itching 2 B Stitching. I liked the shape and the idea of the pockets. I wanted to make something a bit bigger so this is what I came up with. I used fabrics I already had for both of my aprons. With the price of gas a trip to the fabric store is costly!

I also made one for the Apron Angels that Lucy is coordinating. Nature Girl didn't want to be left out so she got in on the photo too.

I laid out the aprons to give another view of them. They are 28 inches wide and 20 inches long. Each apron was stitched to create two deep pockets. I made the ties extra long since I like to tie them in the front. Now I need to make one for me. Of course that's not on my crafty to do list, I should be crossing things off not adding them!!!
