It seems a bit surreal, but I’ve been working on seasonal holiday projects since mid-July. First it was Halloween, then the winter holidays, and finally Valentine’s Day. It feels really weird to be working on springtime aprons that aren’t for any specific holiday. I’ll admit it’s been a nice change of pace*.
Here are some work-in-progress shots I took this morning. I wasn’t kidding, people, I’m firing up the sewing machine, and getting down to business with these spring aprons.
Here are all the pocket pieces. I love the way they look all lined up together. I’ve discovered over the past few years that I really love the way these aprons look when they’re made with gingham. I even wrote Spring 2010 is all about the gingham! in my sketchbook. I couldn’t leave out the dainty florals, though, because I love them too.
Last night I went through my rick-rack and bias tape collections, and made a list of what I have in stock. Today I’ll head over to the Knittn’ Kitten to pick up the last bits and pieces of what I need to get cracking on these aprons. Then it’ll be time to really get down to business, and start some serious sewing.
