I really thought I had lost the apron when we moved to our Hawthorn shop and warehouse three years ago. I had sent quite a few bags of my old made-up samples to the Op shop and just hoped that whoever found it would enjoy it.
Well, a tidy up of my craft room at home found it in the corner of the cupboard. So Happy.
Now it is part of our window display featuring aprons.
I didn't time how long it took to make but it would easily be 40 hours from the dyeing and painting of the big apron to the applique and making of each little apron. Techniques included machine embroidery, painting, dyeing, applique, printing on fabric using a bubble jet printer and heirloom sewing.
All Aprons used were from the book A is for Apron
