Creating More Apron Memories

A while ago I showed you my grandmothers apron
Katherine saw the apron and asked if I would make one for her.
I've been reading about her life for a while on the farm. She wears aprons while working with the lavender, the sheep, the chickens, and the little donkeys. She has a big heart, helping people with her art and her other resources. Katherine makes pies. She takes one of her little donkeys, Pino and delivers the pies to someone in need of cheer. She is encouraging others to make pies, and give one to someone you see that needs encouragement.

In making the apron, I first laid it out to make a pattern. I just drew it onto an old newspaper.















Then cut it out.





















Sew. Finished!




















I like the scallops on the hem.

With the memory of my grandmother's apron, I pass this apron on to create new memories. Hopefully some of those memories will include pie.

That is so pretty! Love the lace and the color of the fabric. I really like that style of apron.

I am so so so greatful and HAPPY! Do you know, I love daisies? The lace edge is a perfect juxtaposition to my muddy farm boots = I can not wait to wear it, and of course will be sharing pictures of it. This is the sweetest thing...you have made my day brighter [and we just had lamb triplets today, so it's a pretty bright day]
