I’ve come across several adorable aprons over the past year. Are cutesy retro aprons coming back in style? But would I dare get food on these?
This one is from the Heritage House in the Heritage Village in Crystal River.
I’ve also seen several versions at craft shows. And if they are being sold at craft shows, why am I not busy making them???
But I usually have to have a reason to make something–so I decided that I needed an apron for a special photo shoot.
Picked up this pattern and some gingham at Jo-anne’s. They didn’t have the shade of blue that I wanted but I didn’t have time to order the fabric online so just went with it. The pattern was really easy.
I wanted to embellish this apron with yo-yos. (If you don’t know how to make yo-yos, click here for directions.) I love Moda fabrics and had picked up a charm pack of 5″ quilt squares at our local quilt shop, Tomorrow’s Treasures, sometime last year. I picked out some coordinating squares from the charm pack to use for the yo-yos.
Ready for the photo shoot!
This was what we originally envisioned the photos for.
But we liked the pictures so much and I took about 100–we turned several of the photos into the guest book!
And, last but not least, it’s actually an apron–not just a photo shoot prop!
