A Pirate Apron and Other Treasures
Ahoy Mateys! Arrgghh… OK… pirate talk is sort of lame, I will spare you the pain.
I made this pirate apron for my cousin Gina for her 35th birthday. She is a lover of all things pirate. It’s the Fruit Tart apron pattern from A is for Apron by Nathalie Mornu. I didn’t make any changes to the pattern, except for my usual addition of a lining (see other posts below for details). The pirate chef appliqué was a graphic I found in Google, altered in Photoshop to be less intricate, then imported to Make-The-Cut and used my Cricut to cut out.

The idea for the apron came from a custom order my cousin put in for party favors. She wanted pirate earrings made to give as “treasures” to her guests. Since one might have a hard time working pirate earrings into their everyday dress, I suggested a red with white polka fabric button earring mounted on a pirate themed piece of cardstock. I came up with two designs; I think they turned out super cute.
The adorable little pirate girl drawing came from a valentine printable you can find here – designed by MerMag. The Jolly Roger came up in a Google image search as a royalty free graphic.
I need to throw myself fun themed birthday parties. Perhaps for the big 3-0 in a few years. At the end of the month, my good friend is throwing herself a 10 year anniversary of her 21st. It’s a hot pink and zebra themed pole party (as in stripper pole exercise class)… that should be entertaining. I’ll be sure to take pics.
