Secret Stitching

With all my furniture being moved about and some plastering going on it's surprising that I've managed to get anything done this week....but I did manage some secret stitching that I haven't been able to share with you straight away.... you never know who might be snooping about my blog!

My dear friend Jo is having a birthday today..... and I know she just adores old-fashioned aprons so this is what I've made for her:
Modelled by my Miss 11
Reverse view
The fabric I used was from the Hunky Dory range by Chei Moi.

I knew exactly what sort of apron I wanted to make her, but do you think I could find a tutorial to suit.... after wasting two hours surfing the net (in which time I could have had the apron made) I decided to wing it and make my own. I did take some ideas from a childs apron tutorial I had and also the pocket came from a different tutorial again.... I'm really happy with the result!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JO!


Until next time....
