Well, here is my newest project: The Virtuous Apron Collection! These will be my first women patterns. I have so enjoyed putting on an apron in the kitchen and having that magical feeling of going back in time. I even think my food tastes better when cooking with an apron and my husband has surely liked it ;) But most importantly, I want to be "that woman." I want to be virtuous, I want to feel divine and gracious. Through day to day disciplining and falling short of those titles, I still desire to be a virtuous woman that builds up and takes the awesome position of wife and Mom God has blessed me with. This apron just helps me feel a little more like her :).
I am in the process of making a few corrections the testers pointed out. And many thanks to the testers! You are a blessing and your words about the aprons were kind, sweet, and some funny! Just to let you readers know, some of us felt a little sexier in the kitchen with our apron on! A little lipstick, a great looking apron and a little jump in our step had some of us giggling for sure! This is an easy sewing project with a no-handsewing technique for making it reversible which makes for a great gift for Christmas parties and get togethers!
Check out Miss "B" in her Miss Divine apron!! Her mom was one of my testers and her daughter tried it on!! "I must say Miss "B" you look Divine!!!!! ;)"
At this time, these will be downloadable patterns. The first is Miss Divine. She is reversible and charming! (pictured above.) This design may look familiar to you. Not only is this more of a classic apron style but I took my women's dress top that I made this summer and made it into this apron. I still hope to make the dress top a pattern one day.
The second one is Miss Gracious. She has a hint of being sweetly pure and a 1950's feel! I can't wait to show her to you! She can also be a half apron.
These will be some of my newest downloadable patterns and look for several more children's boutique sewing patterns as well in 2010!
