A while back during our 100+ degree days it was pretty much a necessity to spend time inside unless you got up at the crack of dawn. I am not a crack of dawn person, but I do admit to trying it for a few days. While it was nice, I prefer my leisurely, retired person mode of getting up when I feel like it and beginning my day!
I have had fabric and patterns for two aprons for some time now and though this was the perfect time to make them. This bright little number is the Four Corners Apron from Vanilla House Designs. The reverse side is the darker blue print. I used vintage buttons given to me by a dear friend!
This is also a reversible apron by Whimsicals called My Little Apron. I used a new fabric line called Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille. The pattern calls for rick rack around the pockets and bottom, but the print I used looks so much like rick rack that I thought I would let it speak for itself.
Here is the reverse folded over. I love garment sewing! It gives me a chance to practice all the skills my Lithuanian grandmother who was a men's tailor taught me.
We had a lovely Fourth of July - hope you did as well! We walk a block and a half to the big park in town, wander around the booths, listen to music from the 100 year old bandstand and enjoy people watching!
This time I thought to bring our Picnic Quilt - Barefoot in the Park (one of my most favorite Supreme sewing gigs) - so we could have a nice spot in the shade to eat and relax!
