Arpon making

Apron making got underway at Chez Margie on tuesday evening (not before tea and Queen cakes in honour of the Queen's visit to Ireland). Once the measuring, cutting, and ironing of the Cath Kidston fabric was complete, the sewing machine was put to good use, Val was first up and was delighted with her improved sewing ability.

Bernie surprised everyone with her sewing machine skills, skills she has not utilised for years.

It did not take long before the aprons were complete and ready for the first fitting.

The finished apron looked so modern, with a touch vintage style achieved by adding lace trim.

Both Val and Bernie were so proud of their achievements, and rightly so.

  1. Margie! I LOVE that fabric. It is so fresh and summery. The lace is a beautiful addition. It all turned out very well. You gals always seem to have a fantastic time sewing -- and I am sure -- chatting. So much fun!
