This is an apron I designed for Stampington's Apronology magazine. They kept it for almost two years and finally returned it this week with a rejection notice. Now I'm posting it here and it soon will be added to my Etsy shop.
I designed the pattern and used this lovely floral fabric that I found at the thrift store. I just love the pink floral print on the blue background. When I saw it, I knew I could make something lovely with the fabric and the price was right. It survived the washing machine (the first thing I do to all thrift store purchases).
I also found the vintage linen piece with lovely lace edging and embroidery stitching at the thrift store (I believe it is part of a dresser set). The lace around the edges of the piece is so delicate and lovely. I believe it is tatting. I added a floral pocket to the vintage linen and then attached to the bib of the apron. I added vintage lace to the bottom of the apron. I thought it turned out really nice. This is only my second rejection letter from Stampington. I have been very lucky in having my designs published in Somerset magazines so I can't be too disappointed.
