Another gift for a new home. Sarah and Desmond, my friends have moved into their new place, I heard. The couple, especially Desmond loves to cook. They had cooked for me once. So I ordered 2 vintage apron panels off an etsy seller (one I intended to keep for myself) and made an apron set from it for my dear girlfriend.
When I was sewing the apron, I thought of Sarah at the same time. I miss her. I miss my friends. Sometimes I wonder if I'm making a mistake by coming over to Palembang. Often a times, I feel like I'm losing my friends. It's a rare luxury to keep in touch with friends and share the minute details of our lives. Despite our distance, Sarah is one friend I'm always sure I can easily connect with again whenever we meet. She's a treasure.
Unlike my other craftwork, I took my time with the apron. Because the fabric is rather thin, I didn't follow the directions accordingly. I added pink cotton for the body and omitted the flounce part. Using the printed lady modelling the apron part from the cloth panel, it became a pot holder above by me sewing polyester batting and denim to it.
