I still miss my Granny, and always will. I attribute my apron affinity to her, but I only own two at the moment. The one I made in 8th grade Home Ec class - my very first sewing project. Granny had kept up with it for me. She returned it to me after I had long forgotten about it. She must have known that the sewing bug would really hit me one day. My other apron is one I made last summer that I've actually gotten lots of use from.
As a tribute to her I've decided to feed that affinity every now and again by adding to the collection. So if you come over and happen to find me in the kitchen, I'll have one for you to wear too! I've even got a special hanger on the kitchen door ready to house the collection. Here's a picture of #3:
It's McCall's 6132 that I've done in two shades of polka dots and black. The apron is fully faced or lined but not really reversible. Guess I should have faced the hem in black as an after thought, but oh well. I might go back and add a row black rick rack. The pattern is easy, but the instructions for the straps were far more detailed for what I wanted to put into an apron. So I took sewer's liberty and made up my own.
So tell me, what is your sewing or crafting affinity, and why????
