Leaning toward the Lightside
« on: April 28, 2021, 09:05:18 AM »
So last week I started leaning ... or should that be lurching .. toward the Lightside.

Years ago I had some fabulous fishy fabric and I made Aprons for the women in my family at that time; if you were even distantly related to me you got an apron that Christmas ... Mil, Sil x2 and most importantly my Auntie Gell.

Now I dont know whether his lot used them or not ... I think one of the SIL did .... but I do know my Auntie Gell uses hers alllllllll the time and last time I spied it, it was looking distinctly worse for wear.

Years ago again I had bought some FAB Ikea fabric specifically for the making of more aprons, put it away and there it languished until earlier last week when the memory of AGells apron and a desire for a lil light relief from Quilting Quilting Quilting the AA steered me towards the almost Lightside area of making Aprons as gifts again ...

You wanted a pics, well here they are ....

THREE Finished (Yes @Lowena, Three count em and weep) and One that just needs the binding finished PLUS A Brucie Bonus (Drum Roll) of my very First Oven Glove.

Is that a banana in your Oven Glove or are you just pleased to see me (Sorry couldnt resist!!!)

I was going to make matching OG's for all the aprons but (thankfully) ran out of fabric ... so this Prototipo (as they say in Milan) is mine, alllllll mine (My Precious) !

They are beeeyooootiful - and a very good way of transitioning over to the light side!
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

They are gorgeous @Iminei. I haven't made an apron for years, still use the first one I ever made.

They are lovely @Iminei!

The oven glove looks just the right size for my small hands! Most shop bought ones are way too big and too stiff for me and are more of a hindrance that a help!

@Iminei has finished a project (almost )  :faints:
They are gorgeous, truly a work of art...clever girl. I have never worn an apron in my life but they are too nice to wear anyway and need to be displayed  <3
I must make some oven gloves, are they straightforward to make?

Once that toe goes in then the feet will follow.

I think many of us Lightsiders can learn plenty from you Darksiders about applying binding neatly around curves. I am really envious of those skills.
