Apron Strings

Excuse my DD manners she knows I won't show her head on my blog. So she stuck out her tongue while I was taking this picture of her modeling the apron I just made. My sister Julie wants me to design an apron for her new line of fabric. Since I have never made an apron I thought I would try a few before I made one of my own. There is a sweet elderly lady in my neighborhood that makes aprons for people. I have seen several of these and asked if I could borrow her pattern. She gave me a file folder with pattern pieces on butcher paper in it. I was glad I had some experience sewing clothes because there were no instructions just pattern pieces. I used some bits of fabric that Julie had given me from her first line of fabric, Jitterbug. I think it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself.

  7. Cute and I love the fact that it is more like a smock than one of those that straps over the neck.
