Apronista members are stitching away on the group’s first apron swap as the deadline is the end of the month. We’re to incorporate rick-rack into our project. My project is done and ready for its new owner. I’ve emailed a request for her mailing address but haven’t heard back yet—maybe she’s enjoying a lovely vacation.
I used Amy Butler’s pleated apron pattern from her book In Stitches. There is a pocket as well as a towel-loop. I bought a nice red dish towel for her to hang through the loop.
The fabric is fun (found at Jo-Ann’s Fabrics). The eaves on the little houses are scalloped and echo the rick-rack theme. Because of the busy print design, I used rick-rack only along the waistband and the pocket trim edgings.
