This was one of the easiest things I’ve made all year. The apron is designed by Pinkytoast and as a favor, I sewed up the first two. It is printed on a yard of Spoonflower’s quilting cotton, with all the pieces included. I love the the graphic design, two charming banana-head girls wondering what happened. Wait, little girls shouldn’t play with knives, but isn’t it ok for bananas to be cut up? Many of her art themes are really outside the box. This is one of my favorites, but there are so many that are just incredible! She has over 1500 Pinkytoast images on Flickr. Pinkytoast sells exclusively on Etsy at the moment, but bigger prospects for selling her art are looming in the future.
Leah was a doll to help me with the modeling. I had a bit of a Tempest moment, and did not want to do any photos this week. It was a lot more rewarding to just be on the other side of the camera for a change.
However, you see all the little wrinkles, shadows, and distracting background objects from that side. I had a hard time just stepping back and not fussing with every little thing. Happy sewing everyone. I can’t wait to see all of the aprons!
