My employer’s Social Committee is organising a Valentine’s Day contest. We have to tell what love means to us and represent this in a creative way. After a bit of soul-searching, I chose to illustrate the saying “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” with a cute vintage apron with heart-shaped bib and pocket. I used Butterick 5726, view C. I used red polka dots fabric remnants, red satin remnants and a light pink seersucker I bought last spring. The reason why my final version only has 1 pocket is because I found my fabric (satin) to be so fiddly when attaching the ruffle, that I decided to save myself from a trip to the loony bin and I settled for just 1 pocket.
I submitted my entry to the contest, they will announce the winner (of a dinner for 2!) Monday afternoon. Wish me luck 🙂
