Advent :: Day ten

I'm working my way through some commissions for Christmas... not complaining as it's good to have the work and I always love doing this type of embroidery the best.

 
After seeing this apron on my blog a few weeks ago I was asked if I could make another. Slight problem as I'd just used the last of the fabric but the recipient didn't mind if I changed it slightly... and so I've come up with version no. 2
 
 
And whichever way you look at it I think I prefer this slightly bolder colourway. I suppose it's a bit like product development with some tweaking here and tweaking there until I come up with something I like.

 
I'm now thinking this design would be fun in some really bright and whacky colours.

 
Which one do you prefer? Bright or pastel?

 
Meanwhile, must dash... still another two tea cosies to finish!

  1. I like them both but I must say I do like how the blue pops out on the first one. :) Happy sewing!

  2. I like them both too, I love the bright cake but then on the other hand I love the green .
    I think you should be commissioned to make the aprons for the GBBO, they would look great on it! :)

  3. I love them both - I guess it might depend on your mood Gina. I've got a friend who this would be a perfect present for.

  4. They are gorgeous! I prefer bright, but then I've got pink hair!

  5. Both are super. The quieter ones among us can have the pastel one, and the more lively characters will go for the brighter version.

  7. I like both too and it would be nice to see a whacky coloured one as well

  8. They are both fun and each would appeal to different people; that's the fun of producing unique products.

  9. Yes, I like the strong one too but they're both appealling.

  10. I like the stronger colours too, but then I love in the tropics where pastels seem to look washed out! Cheers

  11. I absolutely love both versions, I'd find it hard to choose between the two.

  12. Difficult decision, but I think the pastel one just has the edge for me. Probably because I'm a delicate little flower myself.
