Rick-Rack Houses Apron

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.

Oooh, that is sooo cute JunieMoon! I think your swap partner is going to be very happy! Red and white is so pretty (my old high school colors too, so they always bring back fond memories!) Your creations are always so lovely, you have a great eye for pattern and color.
Smiles, Karen

Such a great apron! The ric-rac adds just the right touch.

I love the toe-separators from yesterday, too. I hope you don't mind that I'll totally be "stealing" your gift idea; too cute! The only problem I'll have is digging up enough friends to actually make a dent in my leftover strip bonanza. :)

That is fabulous!!! I love the idea of a towel loop, do you mind if I borrow the idea for the apron I'm working on for my friend?

Cute, cute apron!!! I can't see the towel loop -- am I just missing it? Can you point it out for my blindnessness? I love being able to hang a towel from an apron and like seeing how others achieve that. And sorry my blog has confused you -- my account is being moved to new servers and in the meantime they have all my posts completely out of order -- their showing the original post first-up and that's the one you commented on! I hope they get it fixed soon -- it's driving me nuts!
