I wanted to make a special gift or two for my family and I thought what a great gift to give… an apron. They are the hot thing right now and I love them.
So I found a pattern I liked.
And some pretty fabric with some contrasting fabric. Cut out and ironed under the fabric around the pocket
and the apron
being very careful to miter the corners.
I stitched up the apron
and added embroidery for my niece.
Next, I added the contrasting fabric. But first you have to make the piping. This process is very easy. First you fold down both sides of your fabric strips cut on the bias, i.e. on the diagonal.
Next fold over in half and press.
I then pinned it on the apron and sewed.
A pretty apron for a pretty girl… It was easy, taking less than two hours and I love homemade gifts. I hope she loves it too.
P.S. Her momma is getting a matching one but don’t tell.
