Apron In An Hour

This past Christmas, Jona gave her blog readers a Christmas present: her "Apron In An Hour" tutorial. In case you missed it, you can find it on her sidebar under "tutorials".

I made this one for a wedding present. Haley (the bride to be) is getting married in June and today is her wedding shower. The theme is "kitchen". I knew right away that I wanted to make her an apron from Jona's tutorial.

Haley's kitchen colors are black and a 1950's turquoise. While I was in Paducah the past 2 days (shopping till I almost dropped) I found this cute fork and spoon fabric and I love this turquoise and black polka dot. I knew that Jona's "Apron in an Hour" would be perfect (especially since I got the invitation a month ago), and it was. It really did take an hour to make.

While you're visiting Jona's blog, check out her online quilt shop, Fabritopia. I drool every time I visit her store! And, if you click on "kits", you'll find kits to make your own "apron in an hour"!

Have a great Sunday!

    Question: how did you get your bow to look so nice? Each time I put my apron on I fiddle with the bow but it never looks right and eventually I just get on with cooking but I'd love to have such a crisp looking bow! :)

  17. I love the apron! I've seen Jona's post about it and have been wanting to make one. OF COURSE it's you that has me wanting to make one RIGHT NOW.

    Oh, and I talked smack about you on Vanessa blog. It involved spray paint.
