For Fiona

Today I’ve been working on the custom item that Fiona won in our giveaway. Fiona requested a cheerful apron for sewing in. I did a little bit of research and it would appear that Fiona is a fan of vintage style fabrics so I’m hoping that Happy Camper by American Jane and some pretty shaker style fabrics will do the trick.

Modelled by the gorgeous Jess!
A little close-up of the detail πŸ™‚
And as I can’t ever seem to post without photos of items on the washing line…
I’ve written up a pattern for this so you can have a go yourself if you fancy it πŸ™‚ I’m not claiming that this is an original idea, it’s just the process I used to make this apron. It’s the first pattern I’m unleashing on the world so it’s bound to have glitches. If anything needs clarifying just ask. If you do try it out I’d really appreciate any constructive feedback and a photo would be great. I promise not to cry too much if you think it’s rubbish πŸ˜‰

    I love love LOVE it! It is so happy and cheerful πŸ™‚ I love Happy Campers (it's one of the few American Jame lines I don't have any of, and wish I did)
    I saw a thumbnail of the apron over on Flickr and came zooming over here really hoping this might be an apron for me. Thankyou so much, the only problem I will have is deciding which side to wear because they are both Gorgeous!!!! You've put a big happy smile on my face πŸ™‚

    Lucky Fi! I always forget to put my apron on when cooking. How about we bring back house coats – I always remember my Granny wearing a horrible blue nylon one! Jxo
