Tuesday's Apron

Tuesday's Apron -Stitched Aprons and Towels

Some cute apron inspirations for today's Tuesday's Apron.

I love these aprons. Everything about them is a nod to homemade, handmade, and free form embroidery with the sewing machine. 

These aprons are from a little shop called Leo's Dry Goods.  The founder of Leo's is Shari, with a decorative painter background.  Her towels and aprons are now painted with thread. 

It's difficult to embroider, never mind embroider on a machine with no set pattern or control.  Looking at the fine lines of these drawings amazes me.  

Sewn on canvas or flour sack towels, these utility towels are super absorbent not just cute!

You can read Shari's story here.  All photos are from Leo's Dry Goods Etsy Shop. 

This is Tuesday's Apron, I hope you enjoyed it!


Upcoming Markets, Shop Local

Hi friends,

I will be doing only one market this holiday season.  With baby being 18 months old, things are still quite hectic.

Come see me and 61 other New York independent designers at Chelsea Market for the annual Handmade Holiday Cavalcade.

Saturday and Sunday Dec 13th and 14th

Time: 10 am to 8 pm

Chelsea Market 75 9th Ave New York, NY

across from Amy's Breads.

Some of the items I will be selling this year: aprons, new styles and fabrics, holiday runners, napkins for the holiday and everyday, tea towels and wine bags that can also be used for shoes, snacks and other stash when you travel!

I've been very inspired by the woodland theme.  My latest new fabric is the above dark chocolate napkin with gold metallic trees and foxes, deer and other woody creatures. A festive and modern take on the winter season.

Hope to see you there! If you do stop by, mention you saw this blog post for an extra treat!
