The Paisley Pincushion Shopkeeper's Apron
A little while back the Crafty Mamas forum had a giveaway of an apron pattern for one lucky recipient. When Gilly didn't win, I made her a new one...because, well, she needed one! She made is easy for me because she was so easygoing. All she wanted was a big pocket on the front.
I used The Paisley Pincushion- Shopkeeper Apron pattern. Main and lining fabrics were vintage sheeting fabric with new cotton for the pocket. The back was meant to be fitted with buttons but as I didn't have Gilly here to try it on for size, I replaced the curved, buttoned back with straps so that it was not as fitted.
It is a simple, easy to put together pattern.
It showed up on her doorstep today- and thankfully she likes it and it fits. I am glad that it turned up now- Gilly and her family have been through the wars with illness so she needs some cheering up!
Hanging around the Crafty Mamas forum is good for me. It is such a generous, caring and warm community that it just makes you want to go out and be generous of spirit! And that can only be a great thing in this world, don't you think?
