New Fabric but all thrift purchased bias and trim. The Bias is two shades of yellow, turquoise and white with light blue crochet edge. The ric-rac is light green and turquoise.

Sassy Apron Swap

Here is what I sent to my partner, along with two dish towels and two spatulas.

Above is the finished apron.

We were to include an embellishment. So, I made a Yo-yo pin.

I also made two identical Strawberry Shortcake aprons for my partner's girls.
Myra modeled one for me.
I traced an existing printed panel of a child size apron to make these. I used the same self made bias tape to finish the edges and made the ties using the pattern pieces from another apron.

The ear

The story behind the Ear. I had seen a few ears on Ravelry that were done as a Challenge. And having once a few years ago played Diablo Online with my friends, I wanted to make an ear. In the Game In Player vs. Player mode, when you killed your opponent and Ear with their name was left on the ground for you to pick up. (Yes it is just a little disturbing.) So the ear is sort of a Gaming memento. Plus I just enjoyed the challenge of crocheting a somewhat realistic looking ear.

Bias and more bias

Bias and more bias
Originally uploaded by flibbertigibbetbunny

The bias seems never ending. Maybe it was because I kept sewing it to the wrong side. I sewed the bias on the the front so I could top stitch it from the back without worry of not getting all the edges caught. But at first I kept sewing the bias to the back. *sigh* I finally got my brain on the right track and finished up my apron.
