WIP Wednesday ~ aprons and fairies and pinkness

Along with all the handmade valentines waiting in Sparrow Post, including many, many doll valentines, the girls found new aprons waiting for them.

A bit wrinkled already, they are being worn often, but not for cooking, because they are afraid to get them dirty. So I guess we still need some new kitchen aprons. Sounds like fun sewing to me.

I have had this fabric since last spring, really love it, happy I have more of it.

I also really love french seams.

I'm working on another special apron project already, but it's a bit of secret... I will share a little more soon though.

(and yes, I know it's not really wednesday yet...)

that is lovely fabric - it's the ... oh no, I've forgotten the name - something sprites - um! We have it in purple and I have made a couple of bags from it so far but have metres left to make a kimono for my girl - which has also been in the pipeline for almost a year!

A girl can never have too many aprons; especially if they are so pretty! I made Hana a skirt from that same fairy fabric which we both love! The fabric you set with it is just perfect...

Well I am in love with aprons, and yours is gorgeous! So lovely to hear you have a sparrow post at your house, we read a seasonal celebration book of Tasha's last night and I sat with it a bit longer wanting to jump into each scene : ) It is so fun when we can bring her inspiration to life!

Hi Renee! I just wanted to stop by and wish you Happy Thursday.
That fabric would have me never deciding what to do with it, it's so pretty. I would just want to stare and dream into it.

i adore that apron! and i adore french seams too. i still remember my grandmother teaching me how to do them. how cute that they don't want to get them dirty. you'll have to make them some plain old boring ones now. but that isn't possible is it? aprons just aren't boring. ever. i'm going to put one on now.

Love the apron! I bought that fabric a while ago too! I have 2 boys, so I guess I bought it to make myself something ( I never can resist fairy fabric!)
