Apron


When I was young my mum bought me a book from St Michael called Handicraft Gifts by Eve Harlow. Even then, I knew how much more special handmade gifts could be. So I decided to make one for myself, combining two loves-cooking and making things.

There was a pattern in there for a patchwork apron which I adapted using the same measurements. I even added a frill to the edges. It was my first serious meeting with the sewing machine, and though it's not perfect, I am still wearing it 30 years on!

think it is because it takes me back to when I was young and the happy memories from that time. Surprise too that it kept together that long!

The apron is great but are you really ready to be a Stepford wife?

Sad thing is, I probably made it around the time that film came out-the first time
