Apron Prize is Home

Quite a few months ago, because my wedding got in the way, I had an apron giveaway.  My aunt won the drawing for her own custom retro half-apron.  Consequently, she asked me to make the apron as a surprise for her soon-to-be daughter-in-law.  I always love sewing surprise gifts!  I was told the bride's favorite colors and I went to work.  What came out of it was a very bright fun piece with an added heirloom. I used one of my grandmother's (and her soon-to-be grandmother's) tea towels as the detachable towel on the front.  I'm told she loves it, so I'm very glad.  Here are pictures of it before it was sent and then a picture of Hannah modeling her new apron.  I hope it sees lots of cookery and baking in the years to come as sweet Hannah marries my dear cousin. Congratulations you two!

If you'd like your own custom apron leave a comment or message me and I'd love to talk to you about it!
