Another project off my to do list for others! My good friend's birthday was about two weeks ago and as a present, because I miss her so much, I promised her I'd make her an apron dress for her Viking garb. I used red linen (the second picture shows the true red. The first picture has it really orange for some reason) and silk embroidery thread by Splendor. I did running stitches in white silk to tack down the seams and did a split stitch over the seams itself for strength and beauty.
It was mailed to her this morning so after she receives it, Ill get a picture of her wearing it. I'm very pleased with it. I put my own jewelry on it so you can see how it will look once embellished with jewelry.
