Cupcake Apron

I thought I would show another one of the projects I did for my latest swap. I decided to make my partner an apron. She said she would wear one if she had one. And I love making aprons. An apron is a garment you can use all those fun novelty prints with and no one is going to laugh at you for wear something with huge cupcakes all over.

I had all the fabrics already in my stash. I used Aunt Emma's Apron Pattern from Indygo Junction. I liked the hanging pockets in this version. My partner collected vintage handkerchiefs so I thought she would like the half handkerchief I added to the bib. Mine is not really vintage but it does have a vintage feel to it. A while ago I found handkerchiefs at the Dollar Tree a package of 3 for $1.00. I picked up a few packages and have been looking for more ever since. I have never seen them again. They are perfect for craft projects. I usually don't like to cut up any of my vintage handkerchiefs. I used some others for some tea towels I made. For some reason my camera did not save the pictures I took of those. I will have to wait until my partner post her pictures in the gallery to show them here. I really loved the way the towels turned out so I do think I will make myself some. In fact I already have some started.
