Last time I made one of these novelty aprons I swore never to make another one! But how irresistable are the hearts? And it seemed like the perfect use of this Cherry Print fabric that has a quite a clichéd vintage look to my eyes now, but that I adored when I bought it a couple of years ago. It was good to use up some pink Ric-Rac in the stash, and the Rose Print and that was left over from my “Coming Up Roses” Gypsy Blouse, which is still one of my favourite items of clothing.
This was a nice fun project, not difficult to get the Ric-Rac sandwiched between two layers of fabric – just slow work.
I think if I made this again I would add some interfacing to the big heart at the top – it’s a little floppy.
This week I learn how to airbrush and spraytan my legs on Pic Monkey (photo editing software) – I might get them out again for you!
