Desperate house wife ?

Here it is my new apron design! I truly love it there is no other word.


The story behind the design .
I was as you guessed at Target and i saw this sweet dish towel set on sale and thought OK this could make 2 cute half aprons so i picked up 2 sets and did not give it another thought.

When i got home later that night I started playing around with the dish towels and thought Hmm could I make a full apron. I then placed the 2 dish towels on me like you would an apron and then Boom the idea hit me.

I got very giddy inside and very excited as my brain stated crating. I new this design would be great if I could just get it out of my head.

So this morning I took my scissors and started cutting I was just a little nervous but once I made the first cut I new it would all work out 15 mins later my apron was born. It was even better that I imagined.
I quickly tried it on and squealed with delight! I felt so spunky and put together and just darn cute in this apron just thrown over my sweats. I giggled again knowing that women every were would feel the same as they put this little apron on.

So what do you all think?

I love it! Springy and modern! My mom used to make aprons out of place mats for Christmas gifts, but I never thought about cute dishtowels! It might be my next project to try on my new sewing machine!

Good job! :)

Mona said...

Great design and very cute!! My only suggestion...I personally like a pocket on my aprons. Jen, does it have a pocket and I just can't see it?

What a great creation! It is super cute... Oh, how I wish I had a sewing machine. I wouldn't be as crafty, but I could play.

Jen, I love this! AWESOME! You are so talented. I love this because I like full aprons better than half aprons. I need my top covered because that's where I'm messy.

I think its adorable! very happy! I never thought to make my own apron but its a fab idea! I want to make one now!

Kerri said...

Wow! I love it! And sice it only took you 15 minutes, you can make a bunch in no time! Very cool. I'm thinking it would actually be a good apron to wear with nothing else when your hubbie comes in the door. Did I just say that out loud? Sorry.

THIS is adorable! I love how modern the print is, yet the design has a 70's vibe.
