|The lovely apron that Sanchia made for me|
My apron making wasn't without its dramas...
It took me a while to decide what fabric I should use...and also what style of apron I should make would be partly influenced by the fabric. Eventually I found the fabric...it had been in my stash for many years and I guess it could definitely be classed as vintage. It was a remnant which I had bought from David Jones, (and how long is it since DJs sold fabrics???) and had had plans to sew it up into something for years...but never had. I decided that I should give this remnant a bit of a wash...silly me! I soaked it and forgot about it
:-(....and some of the colours ran, especially the orange. I used the Dylon product that takes colour runs out but I wasn't happy with the result.
|The remnant I bought at least 20 years ago! lol|
|look at that price!|
So my next choice was a piece of fabric from one of Kaffe Fasset's ranges. And I worked on the apron over the weekend and it was ready to post this morning, with the timeframe for the swap finishing this Wednesday. Phew! made it!
