I signed up to take part in Shawnee's Alhoa Apron Swap. We had to make an apron with an island theme. I had the blue and green floral fabric in my stash, but I only had a yard of it, so I needed to choose a pattern that would allow me to use it as an accent fabric .... I found just the right pattern in my pattern collection. It is McCalls 5997.
I did change the way the ties were made. Instead of sewing them in as part of the bib, I added rings - I just thought it added a nice detail. I'm very happy with the way it turned out, I hope my partner likes it as much as I do:-D
Did you noticed Molly ..... she's my model:-D She was a late birthday present from my sweet hubby. I have wanted one forever, but they've always been way out of our price range. We saw 2 of these at Hobby Lobby on sale, but by the time he and Girl Child went back to buy it, they were all gone:-( Then a week ago, I popped in there for a spool of thread, and there was another one tucked in a corner .... I called hubby, he said get it, so she came home with me!!! They'd found her tucked in at the back of the storage room ....... some things are just meant to be!!!


  1. The fabric is great and adds just the right amount of aloha spirit. I love your new model. Like you I've wanted one for a while but I haven't been willing to spend the money. I've just discovered Hobby Lobby so I'll have to keep an eye out for a model for myself.

  2. oh I love that apron and you model is perfect! Don't you just love it when good things happen...
