This year has been a HUGE year of stitching for me, but I am sure that by reading my blog you might wonder what I have actually been stitching. Well wonder no longer. I am finally able to share a few more of the projects that I have stitched throughout this year with you. I am SO excited.
Rewind back to May, when I felt like all I was was doing was a whole lot of stitching! One of the stitched projects I worked on was for Homespun magazine. I had to package and send away my project without being able to show you. So imagine my excitement when this morning I picked up a familiar brown package from the Post Office, and inside was the newest issue of Homespun magazine Vol 12.11 - The Food Glorious Food Issue. AND I was even more excited to see that I am a cover girl - yay!!
Over on the right hand side of the cover, you can see part of my project called 'Apron Strings'. I was given the brief to design an apron with a food theme - so by looking at my apron, you might wonder 'what is food themed about your apron?'. Well keep reading and I will explain all...
Here is a photo of me wearing my 'Apron Strings' apron, just before I sent it away, way back in May.
Yes, this looks different to the one on the cover, but I can assure you they are both photos of the same apron.
Here is another photo of my apron, showing the apple pockets on the sides. Every apron needs a pocket I think - and mine has two!
My apron features some of my favourite fabrics, two gorgeous big pleats at the front, and a cute green check fabric finishes it all off perfectly.
So there you have my 'Apron Strings' apron - which is really two aprons in one. I love that it is reversible, giving you lots of different options when wearing it. Here is my apron in the pages of Homespun too.
I didn't stop there either. I have also given full instructions to make another apron, this one without the bib part and made with Christmas in mind. Sadly I didn't get to take any photos before I sent it away, so here are some quick snapshots of my Christmas version of 'Apron Strings' in Homespun magazine (being modelled by the Homespun model, not me).
I have a BRAND NEW pattern to reveal to you too - more of my stitching from this year, so pop back tomorrow for my 'What I wore Wednesday' post and the NEW pattern reveal. xx Janelle
