I a teaching a beginner sewing class at Quilting Adventures in a few weeks (and again in April) and I wanted to make some new samples. I cut them out last night in about an hour and a half and made them all tonight in about 3 and a half hours! They are all from Retro Aprons by Cindy Taylor Oates. They are all really cute patterns and terrific for a beginner sewer. I made the first one from some stash fabrics that I've had for about 4 years. I also have a 3rd fabric of cups in this same group. I think they are really cute fabrics and great for an apron.
This purple and green one is made from fabric that I bought this week. It's a new line at Quilting Adventures called Floragraphix 2. The whole line is beautiful and I wanted to make one of the samples in something not vintage or retro looking. It's quite a classy apron don't you think? I'm pretty proud of myself for not buying more than enough fabric for this apron.
These were a lot of fun to make. I think they would be great gifts and they are a great use of stash because most of them use 1 yard or less pieces and offer lots of opportunities for mixing prints.
Now I can just hope that some people sign up for the class!
