Aprons- Day 3

Today I'm posting about the last two aprons listed for this series.  As you can see, I mixed the yellow fringed blanket with the natural ivory linen floral material to create the first apron. I love using pattern on pattern!  Because neither of the prints are too busy, they have a nice vibe when put together.  The yellows of each fabric pair up well with each other while the natural ivory color and white of the pattern blanket look sharp side by side.  The second apron is a little more daring!  I used the yellow and olive fringed multicolored floral print linen and made sure to incorporate the fringe this time.  Who doesn't like fringe!?!  Keeping it at the pocket opening was a good way to make sure it's not "too much."  As great as fringe is, it's even better in small doses so as to not overwhelm a piece.  I hope you've enjoyed this little installment of aprons.  Be sure to check them out in the shop!

Aprons- Day 2

Today I'll be showing you a second batch of aprons I created.  I just love these things.  As you can see, all of the fabric being used for projects like this has been used in previous pieces I've posted.  You can't find this fabric anywhere else, so I figured I might as well use up as much as possible before the lot runs out!  These pieces are made from the natural linen material with a yellow, mustard, and green floral pattern and then the yellow fringed blanket with a white diamond pattern.  There isn't any fringe left though; that was all used for my  yoga bags!  These two new aprons are up today and ready for purchase.  Check them out in the shop and come back tomorrow to see what else pops up!
