Another Craftster Swap !
This time it was "Holmes for the Holidays".
I love BBC Sherlock and that was the theme, all Sherlockian wonderfulness was included actually...but I have a super soft spot for the BBC show.
My partner stated in her questionnaire she would like something wearable so I opted to do an apron/hot pad set.
(The hot pads will appearing in a post here soon. This post is all about the apron)
I mashed up about 4 different aprons I found on the Internet and for the basic shape made a freezer paper pattern of an apron I already had.
Oh, and guess what?
The apron is reversible!
First the Sherlock side:
I found this fabric at JoAnns. It was so reminiscent of Sherlock's apartment wallpaper I about squealed in the store!
The second side is Moriarty!
I loved the little pin dots on the black fabric. Subtle, yet stylish...like our Moriarty.
The pockets for each side I pulled off with my "go to" fabric markers.
The bottom skirt has box pleats and for not doing too many of those in my life, turned out pretty good.
I think Mrs. Hudson would be proud!
