GALLERY OF APRONS!



Hey all you crafty sewists, what’s in your pocket?  Scissors, tape measure, pencil, notepad, a snack—whatever you need when you’re busy crafting—will be close at hand when you are wearing this awesome crafter’s apron!

The body of the apron is made from either home-decor-weight fabric or lightweight canvas, with quilting cotton fabric for the five pockets.  I can imagine a lot of different interpretations of this pattern—this one relies on the fun fabrics for its appeal, but it could be embellished with embroidery, paint, applique, decorative trims...you get the idea.

The original tutorial for this apron is here:  Creative Little Daisy

I made my own tutorial; I changed the way the pockets are made.  It can be found here: Leslie's Art and Sew

In addition to crafting an apron to suit your partner’s  tastes,  you will also make one small item for your partner (if it fits into one of the apron's pockets, all the better!)

This apron is easy to make and will take you less than 2 hours.  Anyone with a sewing machine and an iron should be able to make one.  I think it would be a great holiday gift—after you have made one for this swap, you will be experienced enough to whip up a few more in no time!

We would love to have you join this swap!  Sign-ups will close on Monday, Aug. 15th.  Then you will have about 2 weeks to craft, with send-outs on Tuesday, August 30th.  It took me a little over an hour to make the apron in the picture, but I had everything in my sewing room already--I didn't spend any time shopping for just the right fabrics!  And of course there is the additional one small item that you send with the apron that will take some time.  Two weeks should be plenty.

Communication is vital!  Please post to the thread at least once a week; we don’t want to have to write “poor communication” in your feedback when the swap is over.  Be sure to pm your group organizer and your partner when you send and receive.

Susanab and I (Leslieshappyheart) are coorganizing this swap.  My name comes first because I have more time to devote to Craftster, but she is the brains behind this team!  Please pm both of us when signing up.

I need one of these for work, but I don't think I'd be able to sew one.
