|New Version of my Harlequin Apron and Rosie enjoying a nap on a warm March weekend, I may join her soon!|
I was recently contacted by a magazine about some of my patterns, which is exciting, but also led me to upgrade the only pattern I have produced for sale, the Harlequin Apron Pattern. The magazine wanted a project that used pre-cuts so I had to also adjust the pattern to use pre-cuts, which was not difficult, the original pattern used 5" squares that you cut yourself.
Bonnie and Camille fabrics. So far I have just made the one using a Vintage Modern charm pack and 1/2 yard of the coordinating fabric but I have Marmalade waiting in the wings.
Some history about this apron. I love to scour thrift and antique shops for vintage aprons. I found this one a few years ago and loved the way it was made with patchwork. Sadly these are the only photos I took and I no longer have the apron!
|My original pattern instructs you to cut your own squares by color for each row, as show in the original vintage version.|
|LOVE big bows and this rick rack trim, also yummy vintage fabrics!|
Look how some of the squares had to be pieced just to make a 5 inch square,
we are so spoiled today buying oodles of fabric whenever we want.
|I made the bow long enough to wrap around and tie in front OR|
|You can also tie in the back.|
|This shows you what the apron looks like laid out.|
|The finished "Vintage Modern" charm pack version.|
|I line my aprons and the pattern has full instructions for lining.|
The new pattern is available in my Etsy shop and on Craftsy.
The original pattern is for sale in my Etsy shop.
Next project: I'm writing a pattern for this apron.
