To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

« on: October 25, 2009 11:07:09 PM »

This apron is a combination of the McCall’s Vintage Apron 3979 and the waistband directions from the apron in In Stitches.

The fabric was one I have had in my stash for sometime.  I loved it and wanted to make it into a skirt, but with just a little over a yard I knew that I was never going to fly.  So I waited for the inspiration to strike and my CathrineHolm pots and their combination of blue, green, and orange finally made me decide that my future fancy kitchen would need a fancy apron to don while making my culinary masterpieces.

Oooh, I am in so much love with that apron!  That fabric is so gorgeous, and the lines of the apron just compliment it so beautifully.  Wonderful!  I'm jealous, I want one!  Cheesy

This is indeed a beautiful apron!  I love that pattern--the hem is so lovely--you did a great job and showed off the limited fabric you had in the best way!

Absolutely adorable! Great pictures as well!

That's beautiful fabric. I love the way that the pattern goes with the cut of the apron and the way you centered the pattern. It also goes nicely with the dish you're holding. Good job.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

I have to agree. the apron and the cookware are pretty awesome.

What a cool idea and how pretty.  I agree it's a great use of the fabric.
