Polka Dot Apron
Another weekend spent with the sewing machine out. Nothing entirely new... another apron! This one for a different co-worker. She asked for brown, turquoise, and brick red... and let me come up with the rest. I got as close to her color request as possible. I was super tempted to Rit dye white ric rac to get it more "turquoisey" but reason interferred, thank goodness.
This apron was spread out over 3 days, although the actual construction was pretty quick. I just kept hitting road blocks... like realizing at 10pm that I didn't have brown thread, or running out to plant carrots at 8am. I did somehow manage to detail the leaves while simultaneously carrying a conversation with Scott.
I like the polka dots because they are very happy... and the apron was for quite possibly one of the most cheerful ladies I know.
