Cotton candy coloured apron

Just a little sneaky-peek of some of the sewing details from the second "thank-you" apron I have just finished making :

Fabric-covered buttons
The best part about making your own fabric covered buttons is picking out which part of the print to use.
This latest apron is a bit OTT pink and hopefully it's intended recipient wont mind it's "pinkness". As Danni makes and decorates cakes I wanted to use a cupcake themed fabric for the main body of the apron and then I had the pink Eiffel tower fabric lying around handy at the time....

Not quite enough main fabric to squeeze out four full length apron ties, so the two neck ties are made up of two fabrics.


































Top stitched all the edges to reduce post wash ironing :)
The pattern for this apron is the same OOP McCalls 5643 that I also used here and here.

Will post more pics shortly of the finished product.

Meanwhile if you live in my part of the world and want to give Danni's creations a go you can find her via the Dannis Cake Wonderland Facebook page.

Thanks Judith :) Pink can be such a love it or hate it colour that sewing an item for someone else out of these fabrics was a little nerve-wracking. Luckily it was very well received - pics to follow soon !
