The apron made it!

This was the starting point for Stacey's new apron....... 3 different fabrics and a piece of jumbo ric rac (I've never seen ric rac that big)!

.....and this is the finished product - front side....

.....and it's reversible too (please excuse the horrible un-model-like poses....I hate having my photo taken, even when I know that I'm going to photoshop my head out)!


I also added a very large detachable flower brooch to the front, just for a bit of extra girlie glamour in the kitchen.....

.....and there was enough leftover to make a little potholder. I used every last scrappy bit of the retro ric rac fabric to make the binding.....there was just enough with about 5cm left!

This turned out fantastic. The fabrics look great and the flower adds that special something... I'd want to wear that out with some matching red shoes!!

I'd like to make an apron but don't quite have the skills for it yet... something to work towards! Yours is great!

This apron looks fabulous, I love the outragous ricrac - and that brooch I am telling you - you need to share with all of us.

That ric-rac is gi-normous. What a fab apron and I love the matching potholder.

I'm in an apron swap at the moment - I hope the one I make looks as half as nice as this!

How nice of you to take on a challenge like that for someone. I love the pockets that aren't even... nice touch and the pot holder!!!

I have that fabric too, it is so happy! Great job, and loving the reversibility. Noice potholder. She'll cook up a storm in that number!

Love it! Super glam!

He He. I love your "modelling" pose. That's why I had to get Trace to model that knitted denim thingy.

The apron looks great. Job well done.

What a fabulous, fun apron!! I'm loving that giant ric-rac, too.

...and it's always nice to see efficient use of fabric. The potholder with bias binding is the perfect accessory!!

Wow - that is beautiful. I love it all - you are so clever. How glam is she going to look in the kitchen- and I love that it's reversible. The potholder - well that's just awesome! Sooo cool.
