I am in California right now...visiting my parents. My mom and I have very similar taste (the apple didn't fall very far from the tree here) especially when it comes to decorating, crafting and color schemes. My mom used to be a professional seamstress... so you can only imagine the remnants of fabric that she has accumulated over the years. I am like a kid in a candy store when I stay at her house. :)
I have been wanting to make a ruffle apron for a few weeks now. I had never seen one before; I thought I had made up a new idea... the likes of which no one has ever seen before...something that would revolutionize the apron industry! Yeah. I was losing my marbles over this idea... I even confided in my sister this top secret apron idea. And then my sister rained on my apron parade, informing me that Anthropologie already makes one. They stole my idea! ;) Ok, maybe great minds think alike... that's what I have convinced myself of anyway.
Nevertheless, I went ahead and made my ruffle apron anyway. The possibilities are endless... so many fabrics to choose from...patterns, colors...it is a mix and match heaven! :) Without further ado...(drum roll please)...I present to you... My Ruffle Apron!!
I am always attracted to bright and cheery colors... and of course RED! I love to pair red with yellow and green...and you really can't go wrong with polka dots, gingham and floral prints. ;)
There it is... in all of it's ruffly glory. ;) Yeah... that bust is on a broomstick. haha you have to do what you have to do. ;)
I had so much fun making this... that I will surely be making many more technicolored aprons. ;)
Isn't cooking, baking and cleaning so much more fun in a frilly apron? Well...cooking and baking is more fun... it simply makes cleaning bearable. ;)
