Welcome to the first day of the Wicked Blog hop 2013 edition. This is such a fun and creepy time of year and there is no end to the crafts and sewing you can do, in addition to making costumes for your kids. The reason for the title of my post today is this; last fall I won a bundle of cute Halloween themed fabric from a hop on Sew We Quilt. Now, I had no idea what to do with this. I do not really go in for Halloween quilts, though there are many cute ones. I don't decorate for Halloween any more since the kids all grew up and left. But my daughter had a great idea when she saw the bundle...she wanted an apron to wear while handing out treats. She liked the idea of being holiday festive without an actual costume. Further, she reasoned, I should make aprons for her two sisters as well. And so when this hop came around, I put two and two together and this is the result:
For each apron, I used 6 fat quarters. I designed the apron pattern myself. The only thing different is the colors of the fabrics. It was fun to make three similar, yet different.
And they had to have pockets.
And of course, a ruffle on the bottom.
Joann helped us to find buttons for each of the apron pockets. Headstones for the purple...
...metal skulls for the black...
...and some adorable pumpkins for the orange...
...as well as one cute spider web that was perfect for the bib.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Wicked aprons today. Now, go forth and visit all of my lovely wicked sisters and see what they have conjured up for you. And I don't want to forget to thank Wicked Wendy for being such a wonderfully wicked cheerleader and of course, Madame Samm who continues to find wonderful themes for these super fun hops.
