Pink Apron

Since I've been on this sewing themed kick lately, I just had to pull out one of Karen Lockhart's aprons to work with. This image is called Vintage Apron. I love paper piecing Karen's apron designs, it's like playing with paper dolls again. I stamped the apron image onto some Fancy Pants patterned paper and colored the trims a little with a pink Copic marker. For the background I scrunched up a piece of old sewing pattern. A pretty ribbon and tied pink buttons just add to the feminine sewing theme. For the inside of my card, I used some Crafty Secrets stamps for the sentiment and stitching line.
With all the crafty crazy going on, it's fun to reach for other types of crafting supplies....like the sewing themed stamps, old sewing patterns, my sewing machine, vintage buttons, etc. Oh how I love to dig through my goodies. Hope you're having a fabulous day!

This is so sweet! Love those stamps, the apron & sentiment, the scrunched up sewing pattern, and the stitching inside. It is fun to find ways to combine our crafts & supplies! :>

Your card is just darn cute. I also have the KL apron stamp and learned to paper piece from you months ago. My favorite "go to" stamp. Adding the pattern piece just really set it off. Thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful ideas. Nancy in So Cal
P.S. I think I'll go make one for a friend that I haven't seen for a while and use the sentiment...
Miss you sew much! So off ot scrap.
