I was recently given a $25 gift certificate to shop for apron fabrics at a new-to-me online shop called OnlineFabricStore… not only did this give me the opportunity to combine my love of material and apron sewing, but I also discovered a new fabric resource! Not only do they have your ‘traditional’ quilting, home decor, and apparel fabrics, but they have a HUGE selection of more unusualhard to find materials: vinyl and leathers, foam and pillow forms (there’s a huge variety of shapes, sizes, and styles. I had no idea you could even get some shapes like this), and coffee bags! I really couldn’t resist putting a couple of these in my cart because I’ve been itching to make a bagtote with them.
Last night all my supplies arrived so I’m now ready to get stitching! I’ve settled on two apron designs: a short and sweet half apron in gingham (I’m also mulling around the idea of adding a few appliques) and a rose printedfull apron with gingham accents. I’m excited to started, but can’t decide which to start first!
