A Donna Downey Inspired Canvas Apron

I loved creating this apron.  This apron was a Donna Downey inspired project.    It was just fun to create the flowers from fabric, the butterfly from felted wool sweaters, and the green leaves with foam stencils and paint. The embroidered tags and leaf stencil are all from Donna Downey. I love to visit Donna's blog because it always inspires me to create with many of my favorite mediums like paint, fabric, scrapbooking, and sewing.

Although Donna sells canvas aprons, I went ahead and created my own version since I have canvas fabric. I added the gathered muslin on top of the canvas then added the pocket. I stenciled the leaves and even created some of the fabric covered buttons with coordinating fabric. The butterfly is a sizzix diecut - I added tiny peal beads to the center of the butterfly. Although I actually created this apron many months ago, I just realized I have never posted it on the blog so today was the day for that!
