Hummingbird Apron

This is an apron I made, the fabric is linoleum block-printed rayon.

I thought it would be fun to show some pictures of how this was made.
First, I carved the stamps out of linoleum.  Don't you just love the attractive apron I'm wearing?  

Then I used the stamps to create the pattern on the fabric:


After that I painted in the orange flowers:

Then I dyed the orange fabric to match, and sewed it together! 
Now if only I could cook I'd have a reason to wear it...
