... the one in the current Scrapbooking Memories. Here's a few pictures of it:
A bit of background to the apron. I was asked to make an apron for the Mother's Day feature in Scrapbooking Memories. That was fine, I love making these types of projects, a real break from "layout" scrapbooking, and it also incorporates one of my other crafty loves, sewing.
Then I started thinking about it... an apron (to me) means cooking. The last thing I want to be doing on MY mother's day is trying to think what to cook AND actually cooking it... no way, I want to be pampered on MY mother's day (hope you are reading this, my lovely family).
Anyway, I got to thinking, this could actually be a scrapbooking apron. The one I wear when I get totally absorbed in my scrapbooking, that I forget to cook dinner (and possibly even forget to buy any raw materials that could be whipped up into a quick meal).
And then I started remembering, sometimes the girls have come hunting for food at dinner time (the dinner I some how forgot to cook), and I quite often say, "you want dinner? pass me the take away menu!"
And there you have it (if you've read this far) the inspiration behind the apron. By making this apron I was having a bit of fun and I certainly wasn't implying to mother's everywhere they should be wearing the apron and popping into the kitchen. The last thing I would want everyone to think is that I will be cooking on my mother's day. NO WAY!!!!
A few materials details:
- the apron is made from cotton drill (in hot pink) from Spotlight (my own pattern);
- the ties (which you can't see in the pictures above, but you can in the magazine) are chocolate cotton twill tape;
- white fuzzy letters are Heidi Swapp iron on letters;
- the big "dinner?" is my own lettering in brown cotton drill attached with visafix (spelling?);
- rick rack and polka dot ribbon from Ribbons Galore;
- iron on transfer paper for the photos on the pocket is by Celcast.
Have a good weekend everyone!
