Spring Aprons, Cherries and Hydrangeas!

I have so much fun fabric shopping for aprons.  I love picking out coordinating fabrics and then watching them transform as I craft them together.  I have a hard time waiting for them to get finished so I can see the final product.

But I enjoy the process as well.  Seeing as each step brings the fabric that much closer to being a beautiful, useful apron.  I enjoy thinking of who will wear that apron and hope they get as much enjoyment wearing it as I do crafting it.

This week I've been thinking Spring and it reflected in the fabrics I chose to work with this week.

I think this is my favorite one.  These cherries are just too cute and the cherry on white accent just sets off the main fabric perfectly.

When I bought this fabric, I thought the pink and purple hydrangeas were so pretty and the pink lattice accent was perfect as a coordinate.

This fabric is a patchwork of purple hydrandeas and green butterflies.  There are some blues thrown in and some lattice patchwork also.  I picked a green lattice for the accents.


All these aprons have been added to my store.  Click the button on my sidebar or HERE to go to my store.  You can also click on the apron picture to go directly to that particular listing.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

  3. Hi Colletta,

    You show a "NEW Spring Purse Pink, Blue and Green with Tie Closure" on eBay. Can you use these colors to make an apron, using cotton material?
