Apron Crazy!

I have gone apron crazy! Certifiably! My workspace is covered in fabrics, linens & trims. The sewing machine is humming at all hours. And I'm having so much fun.

Here is my latest apron creation. It is crafted from the "Harvest Apron" pattern in MaryJane's Ideabook using Mary Engelbreit fabric.



The large panel on the front is actually one big pocket. It is perfect for gathering eggs or vegetables from the garden. Or for wearing around the house and picking up stray items as I tidy my home. I thought it was a bit too short for most people, but then I realized that its size was intentionally created so that you can gather items in the pockets without them knocking against your knees! That MaryJane sure knows her business!

Here is another apron that I made for my blogging buddy ~ Katy at The Country Blossom.



I hope to have some more lovely "Harvest Aprons" in my FarmhouseBlessings etsy shop soon!

Blessings,
Lea

I love that apron with the big pocket - what a great idea! (I'd have never figured out the length part of that, either - good thing somebody thinks ahead!)

Hey.... I forgot to answer your question, about how I got that flower-in-a-pot cursor on my site....

This is the code you have to paste in the layout-HTML (paste it where it says 'main wrapper' or 'outer wrapper'

cursor:url("yourimage.cur");

Then, of course, you should look for any cursor images (*.cur or *.ani) online. - And then change 'yourimage.cur' to the url of that file.

If you'd like to use mine, the URL will be:

http://www.amarese.com/recipes/happyflower1.ani

I hope you can figure out my chaotic explanation.. *lol*
