This fabric called out to me one day and told me I needed an apron. A lined, pleated, top stitched apron. In patch work. No matter that I had never made one before. It didn’t matter that I didn’t have a pattern because I was not sure how to follow one anyway. I had the pattern in my head.
Do you think I cut these pockets wrong?
Do you this think I made the pockets too small?
Grab a plate to mark a curve in bigger pockets. Now I inherited my Mother-in Law’s sewing tools including her French curve ruler. But I never knew what you used it for until I saw it in a sewing video in YouTube, after I finished the apron!
Small pockets look good on the big pockets. Wait a minute, is this turning into a cargo apron?
Box pleats seemed easy enough
Magnetic jewelry clasps make a handy needle picker upper
Bottom is done
Sewing on the waist band and sash to the apron bib which my husband suggested I add. I top stitched around the bib and the skirt at the suggestion of Marie Elcin who is a fiber artist that I was taking a design class with at the Fleisher Art Memorial.
Rip out and resew three times
Hello, gorgeous apron! I’ve never really *wanted* an apron, but now I may have a change of heart — love the double pockets and the patchwork. Would be a great stash buster!
Thanks! Yes, the material did come from my quilting projects.
That is one fancy apron….Love the double pockets, and the obi-ness of the sash. Is this a crafting apron or a cooking apron? (I might be hungry.)
Thanks! It started out to be a crafting apron but then morphed into a cooking apron. I have fabric for a crafting apron based on a Japanese pattern but I probably will not get back into sewing until the Fall.
