I have a job! Okay, well, sort of. Tina's sister is getting married and Tina has hired me to make "The Most Beautiful Apron Ever" and some napkins for a wedding gift. So I thought I'd share what I'm going to make.
First the apron. I made this apron from some fabric I bought from Marie.
It's a really beautiful pattern. The original I cannot find online anymore but I was smart and saved the pattern to a Word document when I found it a few years ago. This is the picture from the original pattern. I'm sorry I cannot credit the picture taker.
It's Moda Aster Manor by Three Sisters. It's fully lined. I'm so jealous. I might not be able to actually send it to Tina to give to her sister. She may have to fly out here and wrench it from my hands.
The napkins. This is the china Tina's sister has registered for.
Isn't it pretty? Fortunately I found this fabric at Joann's, on sale even!
They only had three yards of it and she's registered for 16 settings, so I'm not sure I can get sixteen 17 inch napkins out of it, so I will have to get creative. I am going to use a white broadcloth for the contrast color.
And that's what I am sewing right now.
