A Project for me... Isn't this wonderful????

I was surfing on the web when I came across this stunning apron.

I tell you its fabulous... I just have to have one of these lovely and functional aprons. There is no pattern to purchase, but with my sewing skills and my ability to design my own aprons.. I think I can make this one just by the snap of my fingers :)

Unless one of my sweet bloggie apron loving friends wants to come to my aid and make one for me :o) :o) :o)

I even have some vintage tape measures to use along the bottom edge of this wonderful sewers apron. Heck I just might make a pattern for it and sell it :) No that would not be fair... it was out of someone else's collection. Which if she was smart she would market it!!!!! But I do adore it.

Hummm thinking twice about making a pattern of it with a few changes.

Well for now I am going to copy it like it is and make one for me :) I just love how the scissors and pincushion, thread, and the possible little pouch for buttons are attached to it. ( I really can't tell what the 4th item is) The designer used what looks like bias strips... she added a button and button hole to hold the items in place.. It looks like it is a solid two fabric skirt..but wouldn't that pink be lovely as a huge pocket with different sections to add other sewing items??????

I am so excited I found this lovely little jewel :)

Enjoy this lovely apron my sweet apron lovers!!!!
In fact lets all make one :) I know I am!!!!!
If you make one please let us know here on this post so we can all go and look at your lovely creation!!!!
I will be reading all of the comments on this post.. I will even steal your photo of your apron and add it here too :)

That is just an adorable apron! I love the colors of it. The tape at the bottom could be made of tape measure ribbon. It wouldn't be as stiff.

I was trying to do something similar for my apron swap partner, but I didn't think of the measuring tape at the bottom.

How adorable.
