One for us!


When making the apron gifts I accidentally cut the width of one piece of fabric too narrow, so I could not use it to make ruffles, so I thought why not make a Chrissy apron for us?


This was a combined effort apron. Sofie sewed, I ironed, pinned and made the bias tape and Ellen helped with the design.


Originally Sofie and I had made the apron with the main fabric and used remnants to make the binding and pockets. Here is a picture of the first draft...


I felt that there was something missing and that the pockets (yes they are on an angle) looked like they did not belong. I said that maybe we need the pocket fabric somewhere else on the apron. And that is where Ellen came in - she suggested the second ruffle to bring more fabric in.


And then just to finish off we put some bows and buttons on the pockets!

Now to some sewing that is NOT aprons......

Cute and a group effort, too! Ellen was right on in the addition of the extra ruffle for more color.

Very cute! Your aprons have such persoanlity!

Now you'll need another apron to protect your apron from getting dirty when you cook!
