i wasn't joking

halter holiday apron

I really am holiday obsessed. Here's a halter apron that emerged from the sewing machine today. The fabric is from Reprodepot, but I bought it way back in July, when I stocked up on creative supplies on a visit home to the states.

Speaking of which ... my fabric supply is dwindling. Time to start ordering enough to get me through the next six months. My dear, sweet mummy will be hauling a duffel-full of fabric, books, and patterns when we meet up this Christmas in Roatan, Honduras. Ever been? While I'm partial to snowy holidays, I can't complain. Plus, the whole lot of us will be there - Patrick's parent's and three siblings (one of whom is a Peace Corps volunteer in Honduras,) and my mom and dad. Nothing like killing two families with one stone. Hmm ... perhaps that idiom doesn't quite fit the bill? We are loving children. Really. :)

Posts will be short and sweet this coming week due to my parent-teacher conferences, but you will most certainly be hearing from me by Wednesday with your swap partner info! Swap entries close at midnight tonight.

So adorable! I just love your colors and fabric choices.

That's one great apron!

Katie said...

i love that apron, you did a great job. We have been listening to christmas music here since haloween, and I think we will decorate for the holiday next week instead of after thanksgiving! I am glad to know someone else is in the same boat.
I hope you gets lots of good chocolate for christmas!

Jen said...

Wow, that is one flattering apron! Is there going to be a pattern for that too?

Ellen said...

love it. i think that you could easily adapt that pattern into a cute little dress too!

elleryolivia said...

Add to the pattern list, please! :)

jojoebi said...

macati said...

so beautiful! I waaaaant one just like this!

Nicki said...

Fabulous apron! I'd love one like that.

Stephanie said...

I would buy a pattern for that apron! It's fantastic.

I have friends who lived in Roatan, they still have their home there, but have since moved back to the states. Small world!

mountain-quiltist said...

I love that apron too! You did a great job and I hope you develop a pattern for it.

By the way, when I lived in Mexico I had a hard time getting fabric other than manta or cotton/poly blends which I wouldn't use. I was wondering if I could make a fabric donation to the load your mom is bringing to you? I'd love to send you some fabrics that I think you'd love.

picperfic said...

you clever girl...did you just make this by keep looking at the other design? (which incidentally is gorgeous too) I love your colours...very festive!

Bethany Hissong said...

Perfect Meg!!! This is a crazy week here too with parent/teacher conferences... small world ;)

littlegreen said...

cute cute cute apron! I love it! I have been wanting to make that one too! and fun fun fabric!

h. said...

Oh, I love that red and green together, and strangely I did not immediately think Christmas. My first thoughts were about how lovely and bright it was!

Natalie said...

So did you make it up from muse inspiration, because now you have me inspired too... is it lined? I love it... I wish you could hold my hand and walk me through your process, but it is so lovely and inspiring I am willing to take a creative leap... any tips will be most welcome!

Village Mama said...

que divino!!!

Adrienne said...

I have been wanting to make an apron but just couldn't find a pattern I LOVED...I hope you consider a tutorial or patter for sale for this beauty!

Little Bitsys said...

OH MY it is beautiful! Oddly enough I was looking at that same fabric at Reprodepot for an apron but I picked a Vintage Ornament fabric instead, waiting for it now.

ADORABLE pattern as well, wher is that? I usually make my own but that one is just way nicer than I could imagine. GREAT job!

The Wooden Spool said...!

Lisa said...

Great looking apron and the fabric is really cute. Great idea to stock up because you probably wouldn't be able to find it now.

Amber said...

That is fabulous! I must make one! Is there a pattern? I would love one.

Michelle said...

Please, please make that a pattern or a tutorial. That is one gorgeous apron! I love it!

vacuum queen said...

Hi I'm new to your site via Sew Mama Sew! Love it!!! I've been searching the net for cute aprons and this is the winner. Do you make tutorials?

I'll be back to see!

Anonymous said...

So, so, so cute! Please do a tutorial or put up a pattern for us to but so I can stop drooling & get to sewing!
