Presenting the the Phoenix apron!

 I was recently asked if I could come up with a design for a Phoenix apron.  This apron was made with both cotton and polyester.  I found this really nice gold polyester fabric that is machine washable(!) on warm and can even go in the dryer on low.  That might not seem like something to get excited about, but finding fabrics that have metallic qualities that are user-friendly isn't that easy.  And I'm a fabric dork that gets excited about those kind of things :-)

I really wanted the Phoenix's sash to tie on the hip instead of in the back like on traditional aprons.  This posed a design conundrum, but after some trial and error I came up with a way to do it that I think works.  I liked the apron even without the sash simply because the gold and red looked so polished together.  I'm happy to have it in my collection!
