My featured remnants this time around are collegiate gator fabrics. I keep an ongoing stash of these, because they are somewhat expensive to buy, and even a small fragment can be used to great advantage, as in this sweatband from a previous post.
For this remnant redo, I traced the pattern of a pre-printed panel of Dolly and Me aprons to cut out and make.
I used some scraps of fabric that are stored in a big plastic bag, comprising my gator fabric stash. This one is made from my first ill-fated attempt to make a yo-yo baby quilt. (BTW, my yo-yo quilt post is my most popular post of all time—WHY? I hate yo-yo’s with a passion. I guess not everyone despises yo-yo crafting as I do!)
You may recall from my previous post, that this wanna-be quilt top didn’t make the cut; guess why?This blue apron set is made from a collegiate pattern that was new to me, and I thought, very feminine. It has non-collegiate fabric straps; just an orange with white polka-dots that I thought was a cute match. I used some of the original purchase of these fabrics for hats and purses. And I got that massive roll of ginormous orange rick-rack at Tuesday Morning in Orlando for $9.99; it says on the top “A $75 value”, like anyone is going to spend 75 bucks on rick-rack, arf, arf.
I did not photograph these two in the same frame, so the scale looks a bit off.
I did happen to find, in the clearance bin at JoAnn Fabric, a couple of plain white fabric chef hats at $1.97 each, just waiting for embellishment. A Gator apron looks like a fun remnant project, and just in time for football season; our first game is September 1st. Go Gators!
