Another Apron

My Mexican SIL loved the apron I made for a friend at Christmas from the Pretty Ditty pattern and also the sugar skulls embroidery from Sublime Stitching in Embroidered Effects.

So... I made her an apron with the sugar skulls embroidery. She loved it. And as you can see from the meat juice on it in the next picture, it got plenty of use at her birthday bbq.

Of course I don't have a better full length shot of it because I only finished it as I was supposed to be arriving at the party, as usual it was finish the item, take a couple of close ups and jump in the shower! And if the scale of the finished item doesn't look right, I made the small size and it is not being modeled by the recipient, rather a much taller in stature person.

I made the non-reversible option this time and got my base material from a linen skirt from the op-shop.

I'm still hoping to make myself one of these aprons some day.


  1. Oooh, lovely stitchery. I've bought the gorgeous Pretty Ditty pattern as well... but I haven't made an apron from it as yet. Soon, I hope. I'm having trouble deciding on materials.

  2. Lovely stitch work! I'm addicted to thrift shop linen skirts. They are so soft and cheap!
