Aprons, Models and New Help.

Haaaaave you met Heather?

If not, Heather is one of my newest Stitchology helpers/buddies/amazing people.  I love Heather, not just because she gives me free gifts and buys me lunch, but because she is an incredibly talented textile artist who got me back into embroidery.
 And because she volunteers her time at Stitchology. 
 And she buys me lunch.

Well the other day Heather and I decided to make some aprons because it was the right thing to do.

In her free time Heather masquerades as a pharmacist (and by masquerades as a pharmacist, I mean, she really is a pharmacist) so she just had to use the apothecary fabric for her apron. 

 It’s a good thing she did because it turned out REALLY REALLY cute.   
You sew girl!

For my apron I decided to use some of my Christmas fabric, because I needed more Christmas samples so the dress forms in the window would all have something to wear. 

 Can you imagine having naked dress forms in a Christmas window display?  Turns out, a lot of people feel really uncomfortable around naked dress forms so that could start a riot or two. 
I couldn’t let that happen; I can’t afford the bad press.

We put on our aprons for a photo shoot, but we were feeling a little goofy after a day of sewing so we started making fun of the models on the Vogue pattern page we had been looking at earlier that day.

But seriously, who thought this would be a good pose?

You can’t even see the garment!

It doesn't look much better on me.
And it makes me look funny because it is really hard to stand still on one leg.

Or what about this one?

I just don't get it. Please explain.

Happy Apron Making
