Can you tie a cherry stem into a knot? I can't say that I've tried because cherries and I aren't exactly acquaintances (but I can get that star burst wrapper off like a Pro).
I'm more of a pineapple girl. However, I so loved cutting and sewing these cherries to this apron. The cherries/stem are actually cut from felt. Felt is quickly becoming a necessity in my sewing room. I almost got carried away with the ruffles. They are so adorable that I nearly convinced myself to make a "ruffle apron". I eventually grew tired from all the "ruffling" and chose three to secure to the apron bib front.
When I finally finished the apron, I immediately reached for my phone to "Instagram" it. Seriously, why on God's green Earth was this application invented? After I sorted through all the filters and uploaded, I noticed how much the apron looked like a dress. My brain began placing imaginary darts to the skirt and wondering if an FBA would be required to prevent the Madonna-ish look of the bust. I've studied a bit on pattern construction without any follow through. The cherries and ruffles may have changed my mind.
The wonderful thing about sewing is that possibilities are endless--contrasting fabrics, threads, stitches, techniques, a modern vs. vintage "look", etc. The other wonderful thing about sewing is photographing your projects. Photo shoot possibilities are ALSO endless...
Is it Summer, yet?
