Mothers Day Apron

Mother's Day is just around the corner!!

Here is the cute apron I told you about last week.
It's made with a large Tea Towel (28x20).
I won the original that was made by my friend at Bernina.
She added ruffles to the top and bottom and large rickrack.

On this one, she used matching material for the neck, arm, and waist ties.
Others I have used double fold bias tape.

I think that the flower adds the final touch to the apron.
I've used fabric colors that match the material of the ruffles.
Then I use my ruffler and my Bernina 830 to make the flower.
My thanks to Maxine for showing me how to do these cute flowers!
The ruffler also made the ruffles on the top and bottom.
Saves so much time! To think I used to do it with basting stitches!

These flowers (and many other patterns) would be darling on headbands
or hats for old OR young people. So many possibilities!!!

This last one is the apron I am working on right now. It will be finished tonight.
It will maybe have a 'double diamond' band across the top and bottom.
Maxine showed me how to do that also! Oh what fun!!

It's darling and definitely relays my feeling for 'CHOCOLATE'!

Tomorrow I am making one for my sister that says:
My Sister - - - My Friend (on different lines).
Or: Sisters Make the Best Friends.
It is on a red and white towel and will have a red rose spray across the top
with green leaves and stems flowing through it.
It will also have pockets. Pockets are easy to add and add to
the overall effect.
If anyone would like to buy any of the things that I have put on the blog,
just send me a message to our email address:
