OMG I just love it!! It is way gorgeous and fabulous and fun and perfect, just as it is! My last comment was really a cheeky one as I wouldn't want to put you thru that again. But you must be thrilled with the result.
Oddly enough, I am thrilled with the result. With each mistake made and corrected, the apron became more quirky and gained more character. There are still bits that could use attention, but it works. Of course, now I don't want to get it dirty. Ha!
wowee --- I want one!
That is divine!
Thank you Lynn! Not too bad for a studio apron.
Very cool! A great use for all those rusty fabric scraps. I'm going have to get back to some machine sewing...though my fingers have been particularly itchy for hand sewing esp while reading India's book.
Thanks Julie! It was fun to use the rusty cottons in a different way. Making the apron also provided more "what ifs" for future play. All in all, not a bad way to spend my week.
Hi Calamity Jane (aka Jennifer) - not only a work of art but seriously serviceable as well - talk about wearable art. B
Hadn't thought of it as wearable art, but it is, isn't it? Wow! Thank you Barry!
Oh... it is GREAT! And the Calamity Jane thing - I was reminded of my youth when I used to play with these little dolls called Kiddles. My favorites were Calamity Jane and Bunson Burnie (random thought..) She had a little rocking horse and he was a fire man with a yellow slicker and fire hat. Your apron is so cool, I want one TOO! I'm hopeless at the sewing machine, so maybe I'll get a cotton chef's apron and do some dyeing, thanks for the idea!!
Too funny...you reminded me that at point in my childhood, I wanted to be Calamity Jane. She sounded like an awesome girl. That was probably before I decided to be Cat Girl (too young for Cat Woman). I like your idea of dyeing a chef's apron. It'll be far easier and much quicker! If you do, please post photos. Enjoy!
Thank you India!
Fabulous! I It looks so good!
OKI am going to do this too. very inspiring and you look great in it!
Oh...you'll create the grandest apron of all! Can't wait to see it. And thank you for the lovely comment.
I think I need a bit of Calamity Jane in my life. This looks like something I could get behind. . . or inside!
Have I started a Calamity Jane revolution? Well...not me really, rather Christine with her leather and pinstripe apron. Of course, hers was of the well done variety rather than the calamity. Enjoy!
Thank you Elizabeth!
Thank you Robyn!
Sorry it took me so long to see this. LOVE!!!!!!!!
Glad you my rusty apron...after all, yours was the inspiration.
This is simply wonderful - full of personality and character, which will no doubt continue to develop as its worn (if you find the courage to risk its getting 'dirty', that is!). A wonderful tribute to your artist self...
I've worn it to cook in, but not to work in in the studio yet. I truly am loathe to get it dirty...although it's been in the wash about 5 times now to soften it up a bit.
