The Next 6 Aprons

Ok, I've finished up my design work for the day a little bit early so I thought I'd share the next 6 aprons with you.

July - The American flag is made of ribbons sewn onto a foundation and then appliqued down.


August - This cute little sunshine is machine appliqued. My mom designed him. He reminds me of the sunshine on the Kellogg's Raisin Bran box. Maybe that's where she got the idea. I really like the fabric on the back!


September - Again, the schoolhouse is machine appliqued and the "abc - 123" are machine embroidered.


October - More machine applique for this little pumpkin.


November - This little harvest design is counted cross stitch. For my readers outside the US, our American Thanksgiving holiday is in November.


December - Last but not least in this series, is the December apron. Mom decided that since I was born in December, that she would use my Zodiac sign which is Capricorn instead of doing a Christmas design. She did make me a Christmas apron but it's not part of this series. I'll share that one tomorrow. The Capricorn is counted cross stitch.


That's all of the aprons in this series now. I have several more to share with you but I'll wait until tomorrow. I'm just about ready to stitch.

What a wonderderful, wonderful series. And all with that contrasting backing. So, I may have missed it, but are they reversible?????

Thank you so much for letting us see them, and the CS Apron.

Yes, they are all reversible Linda. My mom thought there would be times when I wouldn't want to get the fancy side dirty. LOL!! I dont' want to get any of them dirty! They're just too cute!

I typed a comment about your lovely aprons two days ago, Pam, but it has disappeared...or perhaps never even made it here! My computer has been acting up something awful lately. Anyway, I just adore these aprons; you are so lucky to have something like them made by your mum (mom). So many people chuck them out without a second thought of preserving their family heritage.
