Amber's Apron












Engineer daughter wanted an apron! yeah!, maybe that means she'll be engineering in the kitchen soon! We found the perfect apron in Simple Sewing by Lotta Jansdotter. (We were able to get the book through the library system.) Amber picked the fabrics, designed and hand stitched the embroidery motif, and cut out the apron pieces. I sewed it up. It's reversible. (It appears gray, BUT really it is a very pretty Amy Butler green solid.) This apron has a bit of a mod look to it and a very pleasing fit. Hooray, it's done!

Take Care~~

Hooray! So excited to finally get it. Also, Tanner, my husband deserves some credit for his help on the stiching design.

Very pretty! I love that apron pattern -- I won an apron made from that pattern in a giveaway and it's yummy!

So I guess it's already been said, but this is a darling apron. I like the fabric choices, very Amber.

Nancy, Her name is "Engineer daughter," and I think you are "Dietician daughter."

Oh, I am sorry Karen, I will in the future work on using the appropriate names for those being discussed. Which reminds me- what should I call you?
