When not busy with the dogs and/or the rabbits, or gardening or reading, I sew. Since I don’t like to follow patterns that means I usually work up a design as I sew. Just before Christmas this year I was sick with a cold and the weather was not good for gardening so I started some sewing projects. Here is an apron I made for my daughter who, at the time, was teaching pre-K students and needed lots of pockets in her apron.
This apron started out as a skirt purchased at the Goodwill so it had a previous life with someone else before my daughter purchased it. Unfortunately, the skirt was too short for her to wear at work. Not wanting to waste such a pretty fabric, I decided to turn it into an apron for her. I added a coordinating fabric for the ties and the key fob.
I had a bit of help with this apron project. My favorite employee at Joann Fabric helped me to select thread and bias binding that would match this crazy fabric. Thanks!!
