Ladies NightBird Apron!


I'm really excited to add this Lady NightBird apron to my collection because it's been awhile since I've done something brand new.  I really love how this one turned out.  I wanted to do blue pockets or a blue waistband at first just to break up the black, but that wouldn't have been as true to the original design I laid out.  This apron is going to a big fan as a surprise, so it was decided to keep it black beneath the neck.  This didn't stop me from trying to add a few details to it to add some more color.  For one, the pockets on the skirt are lined in blue.  I also made both the waist straps and neck straps blue, and even lined the back of the bib in blue.  So anyways, there's more blue on this thing than meets the eye at first!

I really wanted to carve out the neckline on NightBird's chest instead of appliqueing it on over the black, so I did just that, reinforcing it with interfacing.   The absolute best thing in the world about working on these projects is that they are one-of-a-kind and I love being able to collaborate with people and make the fans of these characters happy.  Now I've got a hankering to make a Robin apron.
