European apron: strawberry pink

Here it is!
I love the dots on the inside of the pocket. Love them. So fun. And it makes the inside of the pocket lighter, so you can find the things you would otherwise lose. Because I find that things have a tendency to "hide" in the bottom of my apron pockets. Things like hair-ties and grocery lists. So the big dots are to brighten it up, making the pocket less dark, and to make you smile. Because big dots do that. :D



cotton twill, with accent colors - preliminary pics

These are "based on a classic apron popular in European kitchens, our apron is smartly designed for a good fit. Made of a sturdy cotton twill. Neck and waist ties made of complementing broadcloth. Apron has a double front pocket (in the broadcloth material) with contrasting lining. This plain apron is a necessity in any busy kitchen. Great gift idea for brides, college grads, moms and all the special cooks in your life. Machine-wash. 27" wide, 32" long."
Oh, they are pretty! They look so cheery lined up on the hooks in our laundry room. :)


We were sewing up a storm yesterday, and will post more this afternoon!


the Cottage Rose apron

Shades of red and blue, beige and gray. An afternoon's worth of work. Or, to describe it better:

"Full-Knee length apron in a sturdy cotton blend with denim accents. Designed with couture details including triple sewn French seams for non-fraying durability and a lined pocket. This apron is elegant in its simplicity and is equally suited for the kitchen, garden activities, and hostessing occasions. Sure to become a true favorite with all who experience its simple beauty."

I had so much fun making this one! It was my first attempt at French seams, and they turned out so well I kind of wonder why I haven't been doing them all along. If you would like to purchase one of these aprons, please visit: the Path Less Traveled Market.
