My First Apron - A Gift To A Fellow Blogger

I made my first apron specially for my best friend Bee Yinn of Rasa Malaysia, who is also the owner/writer/chef/photographer of the famous food blog for Asian Recipes and Cooking. I always wanted to make something for her as thank you gift for inspiring me to blogabout my hobby! Without her encouragement, there wouldn't be Craft Passion. This saga began last year when she came back for holidays from California, she encouraged me to create a blog, knowing that I am passionate about handicraft, so that I can post up my craftworks to let the world see my creations.
I specially designed this apron for her after I saw the recent interview by a local newspaper Kwang Wah Daily about her food blog. I think she really needed an nice apron for the press exposure :)

I used a tea-towel-like fabric as the base material of the apron and ran a batik lining around it to create a Malaysian feel. I bought this handprinted batik fabric from Terengganu, a state on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. This apron is reversible, with Rasa Malaysia appliques on one side and plain appearance on the other side.

Besides using it as an apron, she can also fold it and use it as a table mat for her food photography.

Thank you for the apron. Haven't cooked for a while, take a mini break while I enjoy my new car. Hehe.
