Hand crafted decorative Chef's aprons

 With everything closed down due to Covid, 
I am unable to get my ceramic designs fired at school. 
So I've been inspired to pull out my sewing machine and create some new apron designs. 
I actually wear aprons all the time. 
When I'm playing with ceramics, 
when I'm working in the garden, and sometimes, even when I remember to put them on before I begin painting.

This is my latest.
 A red striped linen apron embellished with appliquéd embroidery.   

This is the Lee Jofa embroidered drapery fabric, 
that I chose to carefully cut up, and use for appliqué on my latest apron design. 
This fabric sells for $295 a yard. 
Fortunately, this was just a memo sample.

I like it being both beautiful, and useful!
