First of all, here’s the apron I made for my daughter that looks like mine.
I used the casing where a curtain rod would normally be for the top of the apron. I ran a ribbon through it. She gets a big kick out of tightening it… loosening it… tightening it…
She hardly took it off all day -she even wore it to the salon to get her hair cut!
She loves the flowers. She specifically requested an apron with flowers. She usually gets what she wants.
I didn’t use a pattern and it ended up taking much longer than I thought it would. I was happy with how it turned out though. I just felt bad that my husband came home and the house was strewn with toys and apron embellishments.
The next day I made an apron for one of my Beehives who finished up a personal progress goal on cooking. I’ve told the girls that if they finish the goal to help their mothers plan a menu, cook and serve the food for TWO WEEKS that I’d make them an apron. I’ve made four aprons so far -and I’m so proud of my girls!
Today, I took the leftover fabric from the black and white apron and started piecing another one together -again, no pattern. I had no idea what it would look like, but as I worked I kept getting ideas.
