Handmade Thursday - Personalised Apron

On Tuesday we had great fun at a pizza making event with My Daddy Cooks and along with some other goodies, Ruby got to keep her chef's hat and apron.

It was a perfectly nice apron, but I thought it would look nicer still if I decorated it.  Ruby agreed that it would be nice to have her name on it so I got busy with some cupcake printed fabric and Bondaweb.

I've never used Bondaweb before, but I suspect it's going to become my new best friend.  I'm quite pleased with the outcome - I even remembered to reverse the letters. It would not have surprised me in the least if I'd ended up with a pinny that read 'yubr'.

I still need to stitch around the letters just to finish it off, but my enthusiasm kinda waned when I showed it to Ruby and she promptly burst into tears, declaring 'I didn't want you to do that!!'.

Oh well, you can't win 'em all and I expect she'll come round...

Head over to White Lily Green to see what everyone else has been making.

  3. Looks great! where did you get the bondaweb from? I had a look for it, but was not entirely sure how it is packaged etc...?

  4. Thanks Gemma. I got mine from a sewing shop/haberdashery. They stock it at John Lewis too. It's just on a roll and they cut what you require by the 25cm or so.

    I couldn't find it either, but asked and they produced it from behind the counter! x


  5. What a lovely make, I'm sure your daughter will come round and treasure it for years to come!
