Recently I shared “Another Wonder Woman Apron” (a version of the Wonder Woman Retro Apron) that I made using a denim apron body from a sack of remnants a family member gave me.
A little more digging uncovered another one—a light blue this time—but again just the body and a bib pocket with no straps.
So . . . I decided to make another art apron!
First, I removed the pocket, googled a clip art picture of a paint palette, penciled it onto the pocket, embroidered it, and stitched the pocket back on.
Then I used the zebra fabric you’ve seen on some of my other projects (originally a set of sheets from Target!) for the neck and waist ties.
Look at you and your embroidery skills! Fantastic work!
Thank you, Lauren! My grandmother taught me when I stayed with her one time when I was sick. I think I was around 10 or so. She was VERY patient! 🙂
YOU truly are a WONDER WOMAN! Love the zebra straps! Lovely, just lovely! Too beautiful to get anything on it!
Aren’t you sweet!!! Thank you, my dear! 🙂
You deserve the compliment as you are truly the master of sewing! I wish you lived near me to help me out!
I do, too! I would LOVE to sew together! 🙂
I love this so much!!
That’s so sweet . . . thank you! I’m really loving making aprons now. Hopefully the girls in the family won’t get tired of getting them! 🙂
Too cute. I need to break out the sewing machine again.
Go for it! I’m always happy when I get to have a few hour with mine! 🙂
Very creative and so much talent!

Your embroidery is so good – love your apron.
Thank you! It was fun picking out the colors! 🙂
The zebra ties added that extra touch, it’s lovely.
Thank you, Lois! I decided that the black/white would be a nice contrast to the color . . . and I do like how it turned out! 🙂
Thank you, Linda! 🙂

I am living vicariously through your blog and salivating over all of the wonderful and creative crafts. As I work full time I don’t have time to do all of the projects I would love to do so I just enjoy them through your blog! Thank you! Also a huge thank you for stopping by my blog so consistently. I really appreciate your support! ~Thea
I’m still working full-time, too . . . so I do love my evenings and weekends for sewing and crafting! Luckily, I have a huge pile of “starteds” and “want-tos” . . . so it’s easy to grab something when I have a free minute. Thank you for the lovely compliment, and I do love your blog, Thea! 🙂
Oh so fun. Is this a gift or something you’ll use yourself?
It’s a gift! 🙂
Love love the embroidered pocket. What a great idea! I would totally wear it.
That’s so nice of you . . . thank you, Diane! 🙂

Great project! I could have used an art apron when painting my shoes. ; )
You’re right! 🙂 Too bad we’re not next-door neighbors! 🙂
