Description

Here is my interpretation of the two tone apron for the Sew Republic contest. I have changed the center to a kick pleat and have top stitched the pleats to keep them sharp and crisp. I used my serger to do a roll hem on the edges, omitted the pocket as I didn’t want to cover up the pretty fabric, and changed the belt to an obi type- for some extra style! The unique thing about my apron is that it is reversible and a mirror image on either side. I used one of my favorite fabrics for this, the collection is called Deer Valley by Joel Dewberry, he made several color combos in each print so I was able to find a red background for one side and a blue background for the other side- this way you can wear whatever color suits your mood, and if you happen to get one side dirty you could always flip it around and still remain stylish while entertaining. I love reversible aprons and making this mirror image one was a fun challenge.

      thanks so much! they are for sale on my website atomicaprons.com if you know of anyone who would want to buy one… right now it is listed as a reversible apron, (it looks like two, but is actually one:) but I am also going to list single sided versions too…for half price. Thanks again!

    I love the fabric you used. I have been looking all over for a vintage looking fabric with birds on it. Where did you find it? Your apron is great. I bet you will win the challange! I entered too.

      Thanks I really love the fabric too, it is Joel Dewberry fabric and the collection is called Deer Valley, I think the Deer/bird print is called Antler Damask. It was my favorite fabric of last year and I got it from The Quilting Loft when I was in Seattle last summer, as well as some of it came as a christmas present from my Sister in law who remembered me buying it the previous summer…. I am glad you like my apron, yours is lovely too, supposedly the voting ended at midnight last night… so I guess we will find out who the official winner is soon.. fingers crossed!!

    Absolutely beautiful. Love the color choice, the kick pleat, and the fact that it is reversible. Wear it in the kichen while cooking and then reverse it before serving dinner! Cheerful, crisp looking, and creatively executed. Well done!

    P.S. I wanted to rate your apron as 5 out of 5 but when I clicked on the stars it stayed at 4 out of 5! I don’t know how to change it. :(
