In The Kitchen With Ribbon!

Apron with ribbon

Last week I posted how to make a reversible table runner.  Keeping with the kitchen theme, today I am showing an apron and a pot holder with the same color scheme.   Back in June, in a post about embroidery on ribbon, I mentioned my really bad Jr. High Home Ec apron.  Wanting to give it another go and still being a sewing newbie, I called in an expert, my Mother-in-law.  Dorothy, a former Home Economics teacher (now known as Family and Consumer Sciences) whipped up this hand towel apron in no time at all.  If you are not a sewist, find a friend with a machine to help and give it a try!  Can’t hurt & might be fun.  With so many amazing fabrics out there needing some May Arts embellishing…you have to give it a go!

APRON

For the apron, Tipnut.com has about 152 free patterns on-line!   The apron shown is one adapted from a few of these towel apron patterns.

POT HOLDER

Materials:

  • 8 strips of 2.5 x8” rectangle fabric scraps (I used the scraps from the table runner)
  • Coordinating thread
  • Jumbo Ric Rac in yellow 330-27.
  • Scraps of Batting  (I doubled my regular or use heat-proof batting)

.

Directions:

  • Sew 4 strips of fabric together, add Ric Rac and sew in place
  • Repeat step one
  • Create a quilt “sandwich”: one piece of fabric wrong side up, batting doubled over, other fabric right side up. Pin in place.
  • Bind the edges together with quarter inch seam
  • Place near stove and order carry out!!!
