The Quilt Club at Ben Franklin issued a summer challenge. Our challenge was to find an antique apron, whether from our mother, grandmother or aunt, and to make a new apron. Everyone that joined in the challenge would be eligible for a gift certificate to the Ben Franklin. The aprons would then be used as a display in September in the store.
My mother no longer has any of her aprons. She gave up baking a few years back. My mother-in-law only had one apron at the cottage, so I didn't want to take hers. :)
I found this rather funky one at the local antique mall. I was liking the glove material and the dish towel sewn into the waistband. I'm not sure if it is an antique, but I really *grooving to* it! :)
For the current apron I used the Four Corners Apron by Vanilla House Designs.
Here is the apron I made using red and green chili print. I used black yo-yo's as the embellishments as I didn't have any black buttons in my stash. I figure that I can use this apron as a Christmas gift! One gift completed, not sure ?! how many more Christmas gifts to make! :)
