A) get creative with apron design
B) dig through the fabric stash to see what I could find ( who knew I had so many chicken fabrics? and all yellow?)
C) Try several different ideas
This was my kind of project!! Multiple aprons, similar (all chicken-y) but different, and using existing fabric.......
Here's what I came up with:
Goofy chickens on a yellow background,
with olive green lining and a scalloped hem.
Cute chickens on a yellow background, with
black gingham lining and ruffled accents
Polka-dot roosters and eggs on a yellow background, with black & white polka dot lining and edging
A cafe apron with an appliqued Hen and Nest on red gingham with polka dot ties and trim. I made the applique from a colorbook page that caught my eye...
Daughter has chosen the first one. Now what to do with all these chicken aprons? If only I had that ETSY shop open....(this weekend, really!)
Then I topped off the day with some homemade CHICKEN POSOLE.....delicious!
A DAY FULL OF CHICKEN-Y GOODNESS......
