a flower pocket apron

apron

The month's Tie One On theme, the pocket, was too irresistible. So here we have a pocket. I love patchwork so much. Of course, it's terribly cute and traditionally the way to use up scraps. But in sewing in modern times, it's also the way to make favorite fabrics stretch out and last. I'm guessing buying fabric for no reason and hoarding it is a fairly modern thing, right?

My mom is visiting this week, and we are busy having fun. It's totally possible that we'll be a little crafty, but who knows. I'll be back before too long.

That's a great apron Dorie! I really like the fabric choices for the flower! And it being on a solid grey ground makes it so modern and chic.

It is gorgeous and so sophisticated looking with the little red shoes and black pants!

Sofi's got the swap item done. It may end up getting mailed from Maryland. I haven't packed yet and we leave tomorrow first thing!

I love the whole outfit! The apron is gorgeous but with the black pants and those darling red shoes it is just perfect. Nice work as usual!

Love the colors, love fabric, love the apron! Wish I had made the deadline. Had the best of intentions, but the yard had other ideas.
I'm enjoying everyone else's interpretation of the theme, though.

The detail of your cross stitch on the waistband is stunning! Just the absolute perfect finish to your design. I love traditional blocks with contemporary fabrics, what a beautiful version your pocket is. The whole apron really sings.
