Black and White

Black and white kitchen attire. That was the gift for my nieces wedding which was beautiful. Her colors are black and hot pink, but her new home will have black, white and gray tones. Staying with this color pallet I decided to make them something they could use every day. For the groom I chose an all black barbecue apron. Simple, practical and not embarrassing to wear. For the bride a favorite apron with a beautiful flounce which will meet her very feminine side while working in her new kitchen. To finish the gift I made a quilted table topper that was a project at the American Sewing Guild meeting, a pair of solid black oven mitts and a pair of pot holders made from the remaining fabrics. A white glass two tiered serving tray completed the gift. I had fun making this personal gift and I know this couple will appreciate them.
