Another Fruity Apron

Hello friends. It's a lovely (albeit a little windy) day here in sunny Brisbane. How is it where you are?

I am feeling somewhat satisfied with myself for FINALLY finishing an apron that I started making for my sister's birthday months ago. That is, I started making it months ago, but her birthday was about three weeks ago. It is nice to have completed it to my own satisfaction.

Now that it is finished, I wonder why it took me so long. I made the skirt part basically the same as this one, but just had to figure out how I wanted the bib part to look. Every time I had time to work on it, I had no energy, or no inspiration, or some other excuse...well, now it is DONE! I just hope it fits my sister, or I will be making some alterations.

(Oh, by the way, the apron is hiding my new Modcloth dress! Super excited about finally finding one on sale that suits my body shape and my size!! )

My mind is now whirring with ideas for the ruffly, super-girly child's apron order that I get to make next. I LOVE making up my own patterns, but it takes me a while to work it out from initial sketch through to final product. Since this next order is due by mid-July, I'd better get on it, right?


  1. Hey Candy, your apron is really cute! I also love how you've done your blog- it looks different to last time I visited, looks really nice! (not trying to say it didn't look nice before though!)
    Keep up the great crafty stuff! xx

    1. Thanks, Simone! Yeah, I made some changes a little while ago. Thanks for your kind words :)

  2. Candy, i love your apron. It is way cute. Great model wearing it! I am so proud to have such a talented and inspiring friend. Di x

    1. Thanks Di! I am so excited to get started on the little girl's one next!
