Sewing is such a stress reliever for me. The hum of the machine. Geometric seam lines. Control all my own. Making something from anything. I love it all. Fabric is my canvas. Thread is my paint.
With all of this in mind I had no problem saying yes to a friend when she asked me to make her mother an apron for Mother's Day.
These have been sitting on my desk for a few weeks itching to be stitched.
Last week I spent an hour or two going over old apron patterns. The geometric patterns on the skirts really caught my eye. Giving this one a bit of a change from the last few.
Now with the skirt in check and the bib in position...I have to figure out what to do with the waist band. I know that I will be doing it in the blue fabric. I am off to flickr, Etsy, and google image for ideas. (Loving those ruffles that round to the back.)
