Joy Creates Beautiful Aprons!

Hi, I’m Joy. I created these aprons without a pattern and the idea of changeable bibs was my idea. I made several different bibs for different looks. When I play Mrs. Claus I can now have different looks! I added big pockets on front hold candy canes.

It was a rewarding project!

They look beautiful! I love the idea of the interchangeable bibs – makes it so versatile! I (most) often create my own patterns (I have made many, many aprons) but never thought about switching out the bib. You could create a design for Thanksgiving, Easter, 4th of July, and on and on. So clever! I many times add the recipient’s name. Do you have a sewing machine that embroiders the design? I do, but it no longer will accept the cartridges 😢
Keep up the good work – would love to see more of your work

Yes I have a Janome 15000 and Husqvarna Sapphire 85, both are sewing and embroidery. Embroidery is my favorite!! Glad you liked my interchangeable bib idea. It is very versatile. Thanks!
