new apron for a friend
Hi. Remember me? I used to write blog posts for this blog. I used to get a lot more done and life didn't seem as chaotic as it does right now. But, I think I am ready for some changes and ready to dive in to some Christmas projects. I did manage to get this apron made for friend for her birthday. I got the pattern from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing that I picked up Half Price Books (one of my favorites) for $10. I like how this apron fits and it's reversible. I just beefed up the width of the straps and lengthened them so that they would be long enough to tie in a bow around the front. No pockets. I can't decide if pockets are necessary on an apron or just cute. Are they worth the extra effort? I don't think I use my pockets on the aprons I wear. Just me thinking out loud. Oh, does any one have a Christmas project that they are excited about this year? Just trying to get the wheels moving.
