Apron Plans

This is interesting. I saw this apron while entering the Apronpalooza contest tonight and thought it was really cute. The more I looked at it, the more I realized I was planning to make something very similar. I have a set of placemats that are made from some cute fabric with cherries on it and it's already trimmed with rickrack. I thought I could add a couple of embroidered pockets to one of the placemats and some ties, and I'd have an apron. I finished the embroidery on one pocket the other night and was about to start on the second one.

The doggy design is from a child's pinafore apron pattern where they show the puppy with ears made of yarn. They also included ears in the pattern so I cut two ears out of some white felt and sewed them the puppy's head.

I'm sure I'll stitch up the other pocket. I have another puppy transfer to use for that. But since I haven't touched a sewing machine in about 30 years, I may never get to actually finishing the apron. I guess I could always buy the Sprinkle one.
