Hold'em Up Apron

Hold me up apron 101

Hold em up 202

    I have been sewing a lot lately. I made this apron for Chloe. It was so much fun because I just let it happen bit by bit. I took an old canvas money sack, opened it up and added tucks to the top. (yes there is a hole in the canvas at this point I have just left them there). I had to add fabric to the side and made the apron so it ties in the back. Sort of like a smock. I think she could just wear it out and about with her jeans if it were a bit shorter. I actually did a pieced square for pocket. This will probably be the closest I will ever get to quilting :-) I do not know how you quilt ladies do it. Chloe is thrilled with her apron. Now it is Aubern'es turn, well after I make four huge burlap drapes for my kitchen.

PS. thank you for all the kinds notes. My finger is getting better and my family took very good care of me. Thank you Aubern'e for all the cleaning and cooking you did. Also thank you Chloe for helping me and the peanut-butter chocolate piexoxoxoxoxo

Clarice, that is amazing!! I do love it, everything about it ~ that you recycled the canvas money bag, the patchwork pocket, the smock-tie-in-the-back style, and the tucks! They all add up to a darling apron. You and your sewing machine must be getting along a bit better now?

I have to tell you, I made the Susan Branch apron and tucked it into a wedding gift. I didn't even take a photo, but it was adorable! Thanks for sharing your great ideas with us.

I really love this apron! What a clever idea, to use the old money sack. It's very cool, and has character. I think you have done a fine job on the patchwork, and it's a really nice touch.
I'm happy to hear that your finger is improving.
Take care.
