Allspice Apron


A few weeks ago my husband's mom sent us a package that had this gorgeous apron in it that she made for me. I LOVE it! I think it's maybe the prettiest apron I've ever seen, so pretty I'm a little afraid to actually cook in it! Who wants to splatter grease all over that gorgeous fabric? I think I can use it for baking and be safe though. It's made with Moda's Allspice Tapestry fabric, just like my pinwheel quilt (all the blocks are done on that btw, just need to sew 'em all together). She is an amazing seamstress, I only wish I had half of her skills. I also really wish we weren't so far away so she could help me with my sewing projects. The irony is that I lived by her for several years, but didn't sew a stitch during that whole time!

Here it is a little more close up:

Here you can see the detail at the top and the pocket, with little flower button:

What a nice surprise!

Hi Elisabeth!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I posted back to you there, but just in case you miss it: the color is Raw Silk by Ralph Lauren.

Take care,
D.
