FO: Cup Half-Full Apron

I am really bringing the kitsch into my kitchen now!
This weekend was dedicated to the Cup Half-Full Apron from Anna Maria Horner's book "Seams To Me".
It could have been a quick and easy project, but I chose to spice things up a bit with another "Sublime Stitching" embroidery on the pocket.
This was one of my favourite designs from the Sublime Stitching Craft Pad, so when I spotted the bird print fabric, I knew I had to combine them somehow.

Stats: Half a metre of Alexander Henry "Bird Seed" fabric, from Nerybeth; some watermelon gingham and linen I bought years ago to make clothes for my daughter - the same one who will only wear black now!
The pockets are lined in gingham, which you can't see but I know is there!
Green bias binding round the edge.

Verdict? Well, I love it! A totally unnecessary item which will cheer me up every time I wear it, and that has to count for something!

Cutesy. Suits you.
Did you do the embroidery by hand. It's very cool.
I have a fab chicken apron that a lady in India made me. I should really put in the kitchen so I use it when baking.

Zombiecazz: yes it is hand-embroidered. That's what slowed me down!
