A few months ago, a lovely lady emailed me and asked if I can make aprons for the baristas of her cafe. I said yes because a) I've always wanted to experiment on aprons, b) she was just so sweet and even mentioned that we went to the same university, and c) her cafe is in my province and it tickles me to think that my little part of the country now has a cafe with Wi-Fi.

I am a little bit sad that I will not be able to see them being used. I shipped them just this afternoon and they will arrive at Coffee Hub this Friday. I hope they will serve the cafe well. May they measure their worth by counting the coffee stains they have wiped. May they relish the sound of a coffee grinder in the middle of a quiet summer afternoon. May they be properly addicted to cookie crumbs and leftover cake icings.

Note: My passport was the only thing I could grab to show you how big the pocket is.

What a cool idea to put the coffee cups on it, it looks really cool! Much better than the boring black they usually wear Smiley

These are my footprints, so perfect and so small. These tiny footprints, never touched the ground at all.
Not one tiny footprint, for now I have my wings. These tiny footprints were meant for other things.

That's adorable!  It's lovely fabric and I agree about the pocket-- fantastic idea!

Awesome that these are going to be used in a coffee shop! Imagine that a lot of people are going to see them and think "oh nice aprons they are wearing".
I think they look very nice   Smiley
