tie one on - pink lemonade


despite the best intentions i still found myself racing to complete my apron for tie one on in the last week of the month...
up until now its been strictly needle and thread work only, i have been avoiding the sewing machine since high school home economics (quite some years ago now!)



i was aiming for an organic and unstructured look, inspired by all things japanese...
made of calico and the pinkest felt, trimmed with buttons that i have been saving for just the right project, and pink satin ribbon ties...



and while i love the idea of pink lemonade, it's saturday night here so i think i'll head straight for the pink bubbles...cheers!
