Monday Morning Star Count - Apron Layout

My new hexagon project is an apron.  I can hear it already – you want to say that I don’t cook!  All the more reason to have this apron!  It’ll just be for looks and I won’t want to get it dirty.

I laid out the 210 hexagons I had already made, but I was short a few.  I quickly basted a few more.  After moving and changing things around for most of the day, this is what I think I’ll go with.

 
I plan to make a tie and attach it to the top. I’ll need to make 50 or 60 more hexagons to back the edges, but that can come later.  For now, I’ve started stitching the greens together.

  5. An EPP apron?! Pamela, that's a 'show' apron for sure! What a great idea, can't wait to see how it comes together, will you back it with fabric?

    1. Yes, after I get it together and embellish it, I will back it with fabric.

  6. You sure do like EPP if you are making an apron using it. Love all the colours and it will look amazing when it is finished. Not sure I would want to use it though! I agree with Anthea it's a show apron .
