DIY: Apron

apron_fabric_ps I had plenty of fabric left over from making the couch pillows a few weeks ago, so I decided to use the scraps to make an apron! The prints were already so pretty, and I’d been meaning to make one for a while. apron_square_ps

apron_sewing_ps Instead of following a pattern, I just sort of eye-balled the sizes. I started with a big square of the fabric that I wanted for the skirt. I used a different fabric for the tie and pockets, to give it some contrast. Hemming everything before going any further saved me some time later on. apron_sewing-2_ps I then base-stitched and gathered the top of the apron, and sewed the tie along the gathered side. It was a little tricky, but worked out great by the end. apron_done-floor_ps2 apron_mirror_ps All done! It turned out great, in fact, I’m planning to make another one for my mom for her birthday. Shhh, don’t tell her.
