Dala Horse Craftalong - Dala Horse Aprons!

P1110910

Finished! Martching aprons for Diane (Craftypod) and me!

The minute Kathryn (the Pickled Herring) posted her tutorial for the adorable apron she shared as part of the Dala Horse Craftalong, I pinned on the pattern, cut out two aprons and began sewing!

Kathryn says her apron is "easy peasy" and it is! You can find the pattern here and the tutorial here!

During the craftalong, I have learned from Hanna (ihanna's blog) that in Sweden, where Dala was born, Dala Horses are enjoyed all year 'round - not just at Christmas. And that is what I love this particular Dala fabric designed by Carina (Carina's Craftblog) - it can be worn and enjoyed any time of the year!

You can order Carina's beautiful fabric from Spoonflower right here. I was able to cut two aprons from one yard of fabric - perfect for matching mother/daughter tea aprons!

Happy very early Birthday, Diane!

They turned out adorable!

Looking good Pam, can hardly wait till I get my material. Unfortunately being so far down under I have to wait for like 3 weeks for my material to be delivered. On the other hand, that's half the fun, waiting in anticipation.

So cute, Pam! How fun to have matching aprons with your daughter! I really like the wider bias tape you used on the top, if I make one for my sister I will definitely make that adjustment.

Yay for Dalas! :)
