my holiday apron
pattern: hip hugger groovy café wrap by apa
hand-dyed batik. circles. azalea pink
batik. totally tropical. apricot
date completed: 21November2008
edit: oops! it's reversible, too.
with a fabulous thanksgiving menu planned, i had to have an apron for cooking in. and so this festive café wrap. you didn't really think i'd go turkeys & pumpkins, did you? :D you haven't seen the menu!
i avoid hand stitching as much as i can. so to hem this apron, i topstitched & embroidered for embellishment with one of the decorative stitches on my sewing machine.
i love it! and i did the same on the waistband. super cute.
can't wait for next thursday. and to all a good weekend!
p.s., i promise i wiped that mirror down before i took the picture. darn flash!
