Getting the blues

It's been quite a while since my last post.  I have been busy sewing and knitting but I can't show them on here yet because they're a surprise.
I have however made myself a pinny using my old one as a pattern.  I thought it was about time as my other one actually belonged to my husband's first wife which he ended up with after their divorce about 30 years ago.  (Maybe she got the hammer!)
I bought a piece of fabric last week from the charity shop which I think must be sheeting as it's really, really wide.  I used just a small corner to make this

As much as I love the front, looks what's on the back

So I've got two for the price of one!


  1. Great job on the reversible apron! love the colours :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  2. I'm impressed with a reversable pinny! Love the colours - but then I would wouldn't I!

  3. I love it, a brilliant idea to have two aprons in one, to suit your mood :)

  4. Brilliant pinny, love the colours and two for the price of one........

    I don't think I would want to wipe sticky fingers on it and get it dirty if it was mine...


  5. Very smart - and congratulations on super frugality in making the other one last for 30+ years!

  6. It's lovely! I am totally amazed that the previous one lasted so long. Maybe you should join the Christmas Challenge - there is a special blog where we can post pics so that our preparations can remain a surprise.

  7. I love both sides, well done!
    That inherited pinny must have been made of strong stuff! x

  8. I love your apron. It's definately good for you to have your own!! :) I really enjoy making aprons and make them reversible too. I made one for my mum which is reversible with a pocket on each side for her hanky.
