Hello, all. I have again been absent. For the last 36 hours I have been either in a car or in front of a customer. It was great and productive.
My mom and stepdad own a wonderful bed and breakfast in the Pacific Northwest called The Quimper Inn. Clearly my mom cooks quite a bit and is always wearing aprons. I have wanted to make her one for quite a while. I decided to try it out using some fabric I had on hand.
This one is not intended for her, but to see how I could make it turn out.
What do you think?
What I found interesting about this piece of fabric was the bleeding. It looks like when this piece of hand loomed hemp linen was created it was folded over onto itself prematurely causing the color to offset onto itself. The stripes themselves are navy whereas the unintended color is more of a royal blue.
I realize that a lot of people may not like the fact that the fabric is not perfect. But that is precisely what I love about it.
I decided to sew it using navy thread and a serging stitch, using my new.....wonderful....machine! I thought it would make it more interesting.
I want to thank Kathleen of Faded Charm for featuring my blog and Etsy store on her lovely blog. Please do check it out if you are not already a follower. I really like her style.
So I think I will use this one as a template for my mom's apron. This one will go into the store for now.
I wish you all a wonderful week. Thank you for the very sweet comments on my kitchen and welcome to my new followers. I am happy to have you!
