Cute july market photo of Dada and burger...needed to be here
July was a month of record custom orders for me! I am very lucky to be developing such good trusting relationships with so many fun people. I also had my Apron give-away this month ; which was my most responded to give-away so far . Thanks to all who left such sweet comments.
I had several custom apron orders that were each in need of special attention for different design needs. It was a creative boost to work out the specific needs and let function help dictate form.
I first made a custom apron for a pizza waitress in Portland Maine(a very dear friend)
I worked pizza joints for more years than I am going to disclose so I was quite intimate with the needs of this apron.
1. Looks good with jeans
2. looks kinda like a pizza
3. very durable washable material
4. User friendly pockets:
a. I have a larger long(deep) one for the check book
b. a smaller more shallow cash "drawer"
c. a few pen slots
This apron also has a fold down waist band to get a different look ..or if you are too busy to have a sassy tie in the front
I really loved this project... The client wanted a very durable apron that would wear well from the kitchen to the hostess table without showing to much stain that was the function part.
The content was constructed from a free flowing idea email she sent me about her house her style and her family. This was what I came up with and we were both thrilled with the outcome. Thanks girlfriend it was a fun collaboration of ideas!
I made several custom skirts this month but I seem to have mis-filed the photos on the machine . Two were "tractor girl" skirts here is a pocket from one! hopefully my gal pal form sunset valley will be sending me a photo of her modeling hers soon!
This was the pocket on a half apron that I made for Cali transplant's 29Th birthday , It is supposed to turn her into a domestic diva( the airplane is from this vintage curtain that a co-vendor gave me ! It is so Richard Scaryesk...look for more in this series; very fun,inspiring fabric))
Custom wrap skirt, This is the greatest green fabric almost seersucker texture ...very flowy perfect for a wrap ( thanks Cinda)
"Apronstrings"had a very similar apron on Monday I was tickled over( i told you the fabric was sew similar D)
This custom apron was for a gift for Houston's Sissy -in -law( almost, mipper), I am really in love with it . She gave me no specs cause Houston trusts my creative genius completely (hahahaha- she is completely under my spell)I made the sister to this apron and sold it on Saturday at the market without taking a single photo!!!! I hope to see the buyer again maybe she will send me a photo
So luckily for me I had lots of great response to my aprons and skirts at the Market and beyond. Thanks everyone for your growing support!~ I did not get the greatest pictures ( I missed a couple all together). But They were all very fun and special so I wanted to share them! Thanks for bearing with me thru this rambling post I am sleep deprived this week (already)
