New Facebook Page

Hey everyone, if you're on facebook then check out my new facebook page for Aux Belles Choses, and if you'd like you can even become a fan. I'll use it to post my latest creations, and from time to time, I might even use it to announce a sale...sshhh....;-)


Up on Etsy. :-)

Girls' Victorian Inspired Aprons

Just finished these...I found a huge amount of dusty pink lace ruffles on clearance and bought them, and then later I was inspired to use them as the "petticoat" layer of the Victorian Inspired apron when I saw how well the color matched up with some random fabric I'd bought a few days earlier on a whim (both of the fabrics were the last on the bolt!) I just love when things fall into place like that. :-)

New Style - The Domestic Princess

My latest Christmas apron is up here. It's similar to the Brown Bird apron in style, except the skirt is much fuller and longer, and rather than being simply gathered at the waist it's pleated with double box pleats. I love the result, and I decided to call this style the Domestic Princess. Once I catch up on Christmas orders I'll be making some non-seasonal versions of this one!

My First Christmas Apron...Ever!

There are many more to come so I can stock up my Etsy shop, but this is my first! (Check it out in the shop here.)

And just for fun, here's a little matching bird I made from this pattern, which has now become a plaything for the cat, lol.
