Make a Polka Dot Apron
Friday, February 22, 2008
Grab those polka dot fabrics that are just WAITING for you on the shelf and make a fresh spring apron. I'm thinking of using Michael Miller's Aqua Eiffel Tower fabric paired with Robert Kaufman's black and white polka dots fabric. Which fabrics will you choose?
Find yards of polka dot fabric on Etsy (many of these shops are owned by crafty moms - just check their profile).
The fresh and vintage stack of polka dot fabrics pictured above is from Down Shadow Lane, run by two moms who really love fabric. They have an amazing selection of designer fabrics!
Now for the apron tutorial. This one is from a very crafty and successful mom in business, jcaroline creative! Here is the link to her top-notch free apron pattern. Her How-To section is filled to the brim with cool crafts you can make with her products too.
I need to make my apron for an Apron Swap. This is a first for me! (I sure hope my swap-buddy likes polka dots). If I like the design, I may make a few more to add to upcoming bridal shower gift baskets. Or, you can buy this adorable orange dots apron from the Spring Chick moms:
Do you have a favorite apron pattern or apron shop? We'd love to hear more.
