Sugar Mama Apron

Sugar Mama, Julia
My daughter Julia, owns a cupcake business called Sugar Mama. I had been wanting to make her a special apron for a long time but just couldn't find the right fabric. When I finally came across this adorable cupcake fabric at JoAnn's I had to buy it.

The apron gives full coverage and is fully faced with the same fabric. The bib is brown with a tiny dot print. I think the colours are yummy, but more importantly, they are the very colours in Sugar Mama's logo.

As with all my designs, the hard part is deciding on the colour combination. A white bib was too boring, though crisp. But I wanted the logo to stand out more. Tried aqua, then decided to go with the brown dot for the bib. It might also help hide those inevitable little splashes of chocolate.

The Logo

For the logo I purchased a a package of fabric transfers from Staples. I downloaded Sugar Mama's logo from the website and enlarged it from 1.5 inches to 5.5 inches.

It took a couple of tries to get the logo piece right. The transfer medium is quite delicate and you have to use just the right pressure and heat for it to work.

You'll notice an aqua colour in the logo. The cupcake fabric also has a small hit of aqua here and there. But to emphasize the colour more, I made the pocket from a piece of aqua having a subtle print.

The pocket has a band of the brown dot, and the white hem banding has another band made from the same brown dot fabric.

By the way, please take a moment to browse around the Sugar Mama site. The cupcakes are sooooo yummy, you may want to order some for your next party or family gathering.

I made a coordinating "Reflect" birthday card to match the colours of the apron. Click HERE for the card.

Don't you just love it when a plan comes together?

The wrap-around style provides full coverage (protection from splashes of cake batter).
