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!

Love the apron - and the decorative stitch - do you have a Bernina - mine has the same stitch! I think I need to make myself an apron for Thanksgiving - thanks for the reminder!
