Apron of the Day: Geishas and Manga

Actually, this was an apron I made last week, but because it was a commission, I waited until I got the heads up today that my patron had received it.  I made it for the daughter of old and dear friends, whom I saw last when she was a tiny budding ballerina. Now she’s an Art History major in college. As Melissa and I aren’t FB friends, I assume her birthday present surprise won’t be blown here.

I started buying this geisha print a couple of years ago — a huge amount for me, like six yards. I have enough left for one more apron.

The manga reverse:

I’m mad for this fabric, and have enough left for one more apron.

I thank my friends and patrons for being such good clients, and for giving me the chance to make this, one of my all-time fave aprons.

  1. AWWWWW!! My DEAR apron (one side of her split personality, that is) is featured today!!

    She’s a winner, a beauty, a perfect MEme—dashing and exciting and mysteriously charming on one side, and June Cleaver’s dream of rickrack Heaven on the other.

    I haven’t a clue about Manga, so I’m glad mine is exactly who she is.

    And your model gets more debonair all the time—look at that little secret smile in the last picture.

    Gorgeous, Maggie!
