Remember Provence Apron Tutorial

Hello readers!

Below is an apron tutorial I shared last week at Family Ever After blog where I was a featured guest.

This little apron was also featured in the April edition of the online Magazine called Parisienne Farmgirl.
So, it has already been around the block ,but here it is again.

It's an easy and fun little crafty project.

But first, I need to announce the winner of the Peek A Boo Pattern Giveaway.
Congratulations to Leigh Ann who blogs over at Sew Blessed!
I hope to see some of your sewn up patterns on Sew & Tell Saturday!
I will be emailing you.

Voila, the  Remember Provence apron....

Being the Francophile I am, I  love and have collected a few of those pretty striped grain sacks on my travels.
I've made pillows from them and often thought about making an apron from one, but was afraid to ruin the beautiful and rare fabric!
I love to combine hand painting with my sewing projects and this tutorial is a perfect combination of both.
A little arts and a little crafts!
You, or the recipient of this little apron can be the Belle Du Jour when you wear it.

Materials needed:
3/4 yard mid weight natural colored linen
1/4 yard  gingham fabric for the ties
Red fabric paint
Masking tape
A paintbrush

Here is my handpainted grainsack on the left next to an antique one I own on the right. This fabric can be used on lots of  projects besides aprons!

Waistband detail above. For the skirt I omitted the fourth 3/8 inch stripe.
Oh I almost forgot, Hem the apron skirt before you attach it to the waistband!

If you make one , please link it on Sew & Tell Saturday, I would love to see it.
