That is the title I chose for my entry into my guild's ( Thimble Pleasures Quilt Guild ) Special Exhibit at our biennial show ~ March 13&14 2010 10-4. The SE this time is Embellished Aprons! The proceeds (from donations during the show) going towards Women's Heart Health.
I have a nice collection of blue and white fabric so it seemed simple to use it up for this and it matches my kitchen. I am keeping my apron (because I need one and it took me all day to make) but some are auctioning theirs off at the show.
I used Mistyfuse to apply the tea cups. It was the perfect material to help keep the soft lines of the bodice. I used a wide (both ways) zig zag in a variegated thread.
This is the book I used. Every apron in it is adorable.
This is the style I made. It was difficult. I had 19 cut pieces to put together, that's a lot for an apron!
The results are worth it though. It is a flattering style and will be fun to wear.
I took the book to Staples and for a few bucks they blew it up 400% and gave it to me on one big sheet that I was able to cut up into very nice pattern pieces. This part was very easy:)
