JOZARTY Apron & Lewes

   I started painting this apron on a booth at CHA... seems so long ago now.... but I decided to finish off a few things which are hanging around unfinished and this is one of them. The letters are a bit uneven as I had to work standing up leaning over quite a low table and there were so many other people waiting to have a go. I just did the basics in a rush and so now I have just tarted it up a little and added a few Stickles for a bit of bling. We also decorated a shopping bag which I named for and gave to my friend Jayne. I think I'd really like to make some more as it was quite therapeutic but I'll plan in advance and get them right next time!
The photos just don't show the sparkle very well.
Here's a cute decoration I made at CHA which might give you ideas for using die cuts and punched shapes.
When we were down South of England the other week we visited Lewes. Lovely buildings and lovely shops with lots of antique shops to mooch around.
This is Harveys Brewery Shop
Here's Bill's Greengrocers and Cafe... bit cold and wet to sit outside that day!

Love your apron, Jo. You'll be able to craft dressed in style now, not that you don't already I'm sure!!
Lewes looks a lovely place, even on a Winter's day.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and leave me such lovely comments.
Take care.

Hi Jo, love the lettering on the apron :-) doesn't matter if they're a bit wonky, it doesn't really show with these letters. Love you little decoration. Fab photos of fab shops

The apron is just gorgeous - can't believe you did it while rushed - was it all freehand? Just gorgeous.
