Cute, vintage style half apron, named after my grandmother. It is self drafted. I had so much fun making this one up. Seeing as I had so much fabric, I knew if I made a mistake, I could just cut a new piece. The main fabric is a dresden plates ‘cheater’ quilting cotton. It has the quilting lines faintly printed on it. When I saw it in the store, I knew immediately that I would make it into an apron.
Wearing this apron to photograph it was really really nice. I sure wish I could have kept it but I am trying to earn some money so I don’t have to go out of my house to get a job. So, off it went to a friends store to be sold :( Ah well, I do have more fabric….
A few more photos on my blog:

Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
