Lovely crisp blue gingham check with 32 kitchen utensils you can't live without.
Don't have them in your kitchen? Well now you can; and they won't even take up any counter, or drawer, space.
Apron is accented with a solid blue. The single pocket can be placed for either hand. Wider fabrics include an additional piece of the gingham design for your use. You can see the gingham fabric here.

Thank you inscribed here. Rhonda, maybe you should post a picture of all those mysterious utensils on Flickr and see who can identify them, and tell you their use.

I just had a quick peek into the utensils drawer! Yes, definitely some items there of unidentified or dubious function! I have never seen them for sale in a modern homeware shop and I don't see them on your apron either. Perhaps they just didn't capture the right marketing moment.
Your completed apron looks great, Victoria. The wonderful variety of utensils are beautifully illustrated and you've used the perfect, pretty blue to achieve a lovely, country kitchen flavour.
Thank you Kdl and Rhondadesigns. Rhonda, you have me wondering what some of those mysterious utensils are; if you can't figure out their purpose.
The completed apron looks great, Victoria. Alas, any apron worn by me while working in the kitchen, is destined to end up marked by whatever I'm cooking. The various kitchen utensils depicted on the gingham remind me of my father. He loved to cook and couldn't resist buying the latest gadgets for the kitchen. Some actually did save time and effort, but most languished in the drawer, unused and eventually forgotten. I eventually inherited them and occasionally I take them out, wonder about their possible function, remember my Dad with a smile, then put them away again 'til next time.
This is great, Victoria!
Finally, the finished apron.

Thank you, ms corona, for your lovely compliment. I just emailed Spoonflower asking them to put the plain fabric up for sale. I want to finish making the apron before I put it up; soon I hope.

Very nice! I hope you plan to offer the retro gingham by itself as yardage... outside of the apron project - It's wonderful, useful, retro, custom, different and new all at the same time. Good Job!!!!
Pocket detail. The color came out pretty well in this picture.

a retro apron :
The color isn't quite right in this photo; but you can see the details of the fabric pretty well.
Washed, ironed, and ready to cut. Printed on the linen/cotton canvas, with some extra fabric on the extra width.
It reminds me in the apron of my gran mother it is so good-looking
i really like this design too, and am in agreement with the others that the diagonal direction of the utensils give it a lovely balanced flow. it's really cool and i love the retro feel - good luck!!
Oh, and thank you weavingmajor and ceanirminger for your lovely comments.
I totally agree with weavingmajor, the diagonal flow is the tops! It makes the pattern dance about. It also perfectly captures a vintage kitchen feel. I can totally see my Granny B in this apron making baloney boats! Super job and good luck!
Well, weavingmajor, that's why I kept the apron, itself, on the quilting weight yard; and just added the extra fabric so there would be something usable and not just wasted fabric if some one wanted heavier fabric. I also uploaded the utensils design so anyone who wants more can order it also (once I get my sample). Find it here: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric_items/new?design_id=263534&show_comments=true
I like it a lot - particularly all the diagonal implements - really gets a rhythm going, it's almost musical.
And fwiw I usually would rather have an apron on lighter stuff... otherwise I roast in the kitchen! ;o) Not that it still couldn't be ordered on the heavy stuff...
Thank you. It was a bit difficult to get what I wanted, to fit on a yard of quilting fabric; and frustrating because I didn't really feel that was a heavy enough fabric for an apron. I had to make the ties and waistband slightly narrower than the original design; and leave off the ruffles I had originally planned. As you can see, if we had been able to work with a yard of linen/cotton canvas it would have been much easier.
That is great! Good luck in the contest! I drove myself so crazy trying to design something that would fit in a yard, that I ultimately gave up on this one. :)
