The Apron

Mixed media artist Jacqueline Myers-Cho (JMCdesigns) has been creating, showing and selling her work for over twenty years. When creating, she uses whatever material the art needs; be it fabric, canvas, paint or paper. Her expert sense of design and craftsmanship is evident in the apron, which is created from a reclaimed embroidered curtain. The tab tops resemble giant belt loops that hold the apron tie in place. For added pizzazz, Jacqueline sewed vintage cornflower blue pom-pom fringe to the hem

Playing up the leaf patterned embroidery, Karla Anderson (Mathilde) appliqued a fuzzy felt pear to the apron front.

JMC- that is so clever to use a curtain like that. The tab tops make excellent belt loops. And the fringe is so fun.

And Mathilde- that pear is cute. Love the way you used the embroidery on the curtain as a leaf for the pear. It's a great pop of color too.
